Many of our schools opened their doors and were thrilled to host hundreds of guests, including authors, athletes, politicians, media personalities, Trustees, Superintendent Robertson, Assistant Superintendents, retired teachers and principals, members of the Canadian military and Edmonton Police Service, Grandmothers of Alberta for a New Generation, the Pet Therapy Society of Northern Alberta, family members and community partners. We’re looking forward to welcoming many guest readers again next year!
A big thanks to the over 20 schools who sent in pictures of their guest readers (and in the case of Rundle School — pictures of teachers who dressed up as their favourite book characters)! The amount and variety of guest readers was truly impressive.
Check out all of the readers in the slideshow below. Pictures (with captions) can also be accessed on Flickr. Enjoy!
