St. James Students Transform Classroom Libraries with Indigo Love of Reading Grant



On Wednesday, February 21, 2018 Grade 6 and 7 students from St. James Catholic School visited the Indigo bookstore at Sherway Gardens to purchase books for their classroom libraries, thanks to their Indigo Love of Reading Grant – totaling $30,000!
Last spring, St. James students and staff were thrilled when they were selected from hundreds of grant applications across Canada as 1 out of 25 schools awarded an Indigo Love of Reading Literacy Fund Grant. The grant includes a 30% discount on books purchased and will be used to transform the school and classroom libraries. In order to secure the grant, the entire St. James staff and parent community truly came together to demonstrate their exceptional commitment to literacy improvement. 
Classes from Kindergarten to Grade 8 compiled lists of titles they would like to have in their classroom libraries, and Indigo staff had most of them ready for students to bring back to the school. A group of students also had a chance to pick out two books each to be included in their classroom library.
A big thank you to Indigo and the Love of Reading Foundation, the students are excited to keep their love of reading alive!
