The oral tradition of Storytelling was one way to pass on information and history, to teach life lessons to the next generation. Storytelling in schools is a fantastic and fun continuation of this tradition.
University of Lethbridge: What's New in Books
  Do you have that nagging feeling that hidden out there – somewhere – is a book or two that just must get into the hands of your young readers? Well, who better than to help you mine those hidden gems than Becky Colbeck and Kari Tanaka from the University of Lethbridge Bookstore! With over 30 years of trade book experience between them, Becky and Kari not only know what’s hot, but what should be. Their book talks will include brand new releases and books for every reading ability, including a few that haven’t even hit store shelves yet! These sessions will be jam packed with information but, don’t worry, you will leave with a comprehensive list of all of the titles that were book talked…and then some! Plus, it will be fun! Like speed dating, but with books!
Lenee Fyfe: Grant Writing

With provincial budget constraints and parents struggling to provide, where can we find more funding for our Learning Commons? Grants might be just the thing. Here to help us understand the ins and outs of Grant Writing is Lenee Fyfe, Principal of Senator Buchanan School in the Lethbridge School Division. She will help us navigate this topic, answer questions, and point us in the direction of finding and applying for funds to stock our Learning Commons Shelves.
