Annual “Adopt a Book” Program

Annual “Adopt a Book” Program
being held on Thursday, December 3, 2015 (Parent-Teacher night)

Attention: Parents & Alumni – Important notice from the Gonzaga High School Library

During our Parent-Teacher Interviews on Thursday, December 3, 2015 from 1:30-7:00pm, we are offering you the opportunity to purchase a book for the school through our annual “Adopt-A Book” program. A variety of suitable literature will be displayed in the lobby and you are invited to purchase a book, in your child’s name, for the Gonzaga Library. The book will have your child’s name placed inside the cover as a remembrance of their “adopted book”. Many resources will be available for you to choose from.

Such support will enhance instruction through class research projects and effective use of media resources.

The Gonzaga Library plays an important role in assisting our students to reach their full potential as independent learners. The wide variety of materials and equipment in the Library act as an extension of the classroom as they lend support to all areas of the curriculum.

*** Tax deductible receipts will be issued in January 2016 for all donations over $20.00 that are received. If you forget your cheque book that night – we will gladly follow-up with you!

Thanks for your support!
