Reminder to all library users –

Scholastic book orders

The library would like to thank the IST community for their support and participation during the author visit. The survey results indicate that the community was satisfied with the author visit. One author who is trying to cover the needs of the full school is difficult. It is recommended that the school consider an appropriate author for each school on alternate years: elementary one year and the following year secondary. As we continue to focus on oral skills, the skills and stories shared during the author visit will continue to be highlighted throughout the year. In fact, there are some Thursday Night Lives that will be featuring students and their oral skills.

On Wednesday, 16 boxes arrived with Scholastic book orders; the books were distributed to all eager readers.

Attention Grade 11 Parents! due to Parent Conferences that have been scheduled 31 March and 1 April, the Extended Essay — EE Tea has been changed to a “meet and greet.” Please be sure to schedule a time with Ms. Gourley about the Extended Essay process.
