For the Love of Reading – April 2016

As part of our Outreach Program, two of our Cody classes met with two Thorncliffe Park classes this past Monday and together selected new dual language books for the Thorncliffe Park library. All the students had a great time pairing up with a buddy from the other school and getting to know more about the different languages. The students wrote both of their names on a star that will be placed on the inside cover of one of the new books. Ms. Williams, the teacher librarian told the students, “You will be a part of our dual language library forever.” It was a wonderful morning and we look forward to hosting our new buddies, one day in June.
