Our "Staff Picks" Reading Challenge begins in January 2018.  Please check out the attachments at the bottom for instructions, lists, and reading response sheets.


Our librarian:

Mrs. Knodel is our teacher-librarian at F.G. Leary.  She has been a teacher for 23 years and she LOVES books!  She is also the teacher-librarian at Greendale Community School.    Before moving to Chilliwack, she taught in Vancouver, West Vancouver, and even the Philippines!  She is passionate about reading and music, so she thinks F. G. Leary is a great place to be.  She is married and has two sons.  In her free time, she likes to ski, hike, watch her sons play volleyball and travel with her family, have coffee with friends and, of course, read!  Her favourite book she has read recently is "All the Light We Cannot See."


Library schedule:

The library is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  On these days, students come in with their teachers to hear a story, practice library skills and exchange books.  There is also time after lunch on these two days for individual students to come in and exchange books.  Students should be returning their books to school each week on their library day, either to exchange or renew them.


Reading Link Challenge:

Interested grades 4 and 5 students will begin meeting with Mrs. Knodel in December.  The books for this year are . . .
