A New "First 500"

Dulcinio Vasconcelos, Library Assistant

Our First 500 program, is a pre-literacy reading challenge for our EC 3/4 and Kindergarten students (and their grown-ups!), where the purpose is to develop the skills that will help little ones when they begin learning to read on their own. For the EC and Kindergarten students who are participating in our First 500 program, don’t forget you can always include the read aloud titles in your list. If you wish to participate on the First 500 Books program, please email:

This week we celebrate the achievement of a kindergarten student - Guilherme A! He completed the First 500 challenge and was presented with his First 500 t-shirt and certificate during library time. Way to go, Guilherme!
