Family Literacy Week is celebrated from January 24th - 31st this year and many activities are taking place to motivate families to read, play and learn together.  Some of the activities taking place next week at Haldane and in the community of Chase are:

  • Skate with Chase Heat - Monday, January 26th from 2:30 - 4:00
  • Unplug & Play Challenge - Many classes at Haldane Elementary are participating in the Unplug & Play Challenge, encouraging students to disconnect somewhat from their devices and spend more time playing and interacting together.  Pledge forms have been given out to students.
  • Haldane Book Swap - students can bring a book from home that they have read and swap it with another book.  The book swap will take place in the library.
  • Favourite Authors - Haldane administration and staff will be sharing their favourite authors and books on the morning announcements throughout Family Literacy Week.
