February is I Love to Read Month, and it will be busy at GVS with different activities, including “Drop Everything and Read” (DEAR) time each day, a Reading Across Canada challenge featuring books by Canadian/Indigenous authors, Blind Date With a Book, Red any Good Books lately?, Guess Who? Is a Reader Like You! and more. I appreciate all the students, staff and parents who took time out of their busy days to help make the Book Fair and all the upcoming library events a success. Thanks for believing in books and the impact reading has on the students’ future. Happy reading, GVS Pirates!

Hey there families! Ready to discover the characters and stories your kids love?

The Scholastic Reading Club makes it easy for you and your child to buy books that will spark a love of reading!

Every time you place an order, our school benefits. There are paper order forms available each month for those who need them. For those who want to order online, the Scholastic Reading Club website is https://bookclubs.scholastic.ca/ where you can shop for items 24/7 by grade or by digi-flyers. This option also has a lot more items than the paper flyers. When you have your items ready to checkout online, please enter the Class Code RC165287 for our school to earn rewards. You can pay with credit card or through PayPal.

If you need to pay with cash or cheque, please bring your order (with your name and homeroom on it) and the money to Mrs. T. Friesen (the Librarian) and she will place your order for you. All cheques should be made payable to Green Valley School. All items ordered online or through GVS, will be shipped to the school. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. T. Friesen by email at tfriesen@hsd.ca or by calling the school at 204-434-6415.

Thank you to all the GVS staff, students and their families for making the Scholastic Saddle Up and Read Book Fair a success! We achieved a record breaking amount of sales which means that new books and/or resources can be purchased for the library and classrooms, including most of the books on the library wish list. Thank you to all those who volunteered before, during and after the sale. There was a flurry of activity with decorating, unpacking boxes and organizing books and boutique items, putting up posters, cutting up prize draw entry tickets, setting up the contests, helping at the sales desk and the library counter, shelving books, packing up the leftover books and so much more. Congratulations to all the winners of the various Book Fair contests!
