Learning Commons

About our Learning Commons

Behind the Desk: When you enter our Learning Commons Facility, Mrs. Dewan is there to greet you and prepare you for a period of reading (ECS-Grade 6), dancing and exercising (ECS-Grade 1)!

Accelerated Reader

Our Division subscribes to Accelerated Reader, a literacy tool that has created a reading revolution in our school.  Students are tested using the STAR reading tool, which gives them a ZPD (zone of proximital development) score.  Our EPE students from Grades 2-6 are then able to choose books that will give them reading practice at a level of comprehension and interest that will challenge, but not discourage reading.  Once a book is read, a quiz is taken.  The goal is to receive a 80% or higher on the quiz which indicates that our EPE student has successfully understood the literature and able to move higher into their zone.  Parents are able to follow their child's reading progress by signing up for AR HomeConnect.

Our Learning Commons Area

Our Learning Commons is a space that goes beyond books.  Our space accomodates approximately 40 students thus it is used for presentations such as visiting authors and more.  We offer our space to students throughout the school day to gather, research, complete assignments and read.

Our space is also mobile.  Movable shelving allows us to increase the size to accomodate our annual book fair each March.
