Home / School News / Wednesday Weekly Update



École John Stubbs is celebrating National Literacy week all next week with our Read-a-Thon. Information will be sent home with all students this week. Kick off assemblies will be held Friday, Jan. 26th. We encourage all students to start recording the number of minutes they have read in their reading logs.  Special guests will be visiting classes and various literacy activities will be taking place all next week.

There will be no library book exchanges next week. Instead, students will visit the library and have a chance to choose a gently used, donated, book from the book swap.

Attached is the information that was sent home in a downloadable format.
