Bursting with Thanks & Still Voting for a Healthy Library

Thank you to all our supporters!!

The adopt a school campaign continues until 11:59pm tomorrow night. 

Please continue to support your friendly neighbourhood public school!

Hearts are bursting with thanks at W.E. Gowling!  There is so much to be thankful for but the obvious is the support of friends, family, neighbours and community throughout the Adopt a School campaign.  We now have over 400 books donated - wow!  We have a support base of almost 700 adopters/voters, some of whom have been here since the start of the campaign almost three weeks ago and some of whom are new this week.  Gowling is grateful for every single supporter.

This week in the library we read The Thanksgiving Door by Debby Atwell - photo above.  It's a heart-warming story about an immigrant family's first Thanksgiving with uninvited guests looking for a meal because theirs was burned. The evening ends after a time of generously sharing and celebrating with each other and making new friends.  The other photos are signs of autumn and Thanksgiving around Gowling which is indeed a thriving school with students from over 50 different countries, sharing, celebrating, learning and making new friendships.  What an incredible place to be!
A thank you quote from one of our students: "Have you ever had that special feeling holding your favourite new book? Your donation made me feel that way. Thank you for adopting our school."  D.M.
