for volunteering within your schools.
Halton Region Police Services has prepared a letter to parents of Halton Schools to help promote
their new online service and hope to provide a quicker, more efficient way for parents to get a Police Record

If your children have outgrown any of these types of items, please think about donating them to the school. At this time, our collection of clothing is quite low. Throughout the year, if you have an item and you are wondering if it is something we could use, please give us a call and we can let you know. But, for now, we are looking for the types of items outlined above.
Thanks so much for helping us with this area of need.
FREE BOOKS FOR HARRISON LIBRARY!!! Harrison has been chosen to participate in the "Adopt A School" program by the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation. This is an amazing opportunity to put brand new books into our newly renovated library. This is fantastic because it benefits every single person in the school! For every two books you donate online the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation will give an extra bonus book to our school! You can also share a story about reading or why our school matters. If they feature your story, the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation will give on your behalf!
Please visit: adoptaschool.indigo.ca
Please help donate and let us see how many new books we can get!!!
Do you have one or two hours a week or every other week to help in our school library?
Increased circulation in our school library was the result of many excellent volunteers here at the Harrison Public School Library.
As Teacher Librarian, I am assigned to work in the Library on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. I will also be teaching other classes throughout the school. This leaves time where students may not be able to find the book he/she wants to sign out because it is on the shelving cart. Library volunteers allow for increased access to resources for all students in our school.
Volunteer activities include:
*helping students make selections
*arranging book displays
*selecting theme materials for students/displays
*gathering resources for teachers
*book fair sales
As a library volunteer you will gain a better understanding of school programmes and the types of reading materials that children enjoy. You will have the opportunity to help all students in our school.
If you are interested in helping in our school library, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
*Child’s name and teacher
Training sessions will be held, if you are new to our library!
Thanks so much for your consideration!
