Blue Spruce 2021 Voting Starts Soon


Thank you to all of our face to face and Learn@Home students and teachers for participating in the 2021 Blue Spruce Program!  The 10 nominated books have certainly been our most diverse and inclusive ever –  so enjoyable.  I personally learned so much more about Syria, Grandmother School, the best way to deal with an insecurity about something you may have done (The Truth About the Wind), along with how much diversity can be found in one apartment building (Going Up)!  Students and staff will be voting from April 23 to May 7th this year. Can’t wait to find out which Blue Spruce nominated book will be our school and and all of Ontario’s favourite!  Check out this year’s nominees in the short video below:

Happy New Year 2021!


Welcome Back to our Angus Morrison and Learn@Home students and families!  Thank you for your amazing support of our 1st Virtual Scholastic Book Fair along with your detective work during the “Reading Gives You Superpowers” red cape mystery. So glad The Handsome Brothers learned that you don’t need a superhero cape to become a super reader!
