Learning Commons

Welcome to Manachaban Learning Commons

Learning Commons is a space that promotes and accommodates literacy, creativity, and critical thinking, enhancing student engagement through collaboration, and communication. As an LCF my role is to be a guide on the side.

  • Overdue Fines: In case a student's library books are long overdue please bring a non-perishable food donation along with the books and fines will be pardoned.
  • Lost Book Charges: In case a student loses a library book, we would like it to be replaced by purchasing the same title from a bookstore or online and sending it with the student to the library.
  • Damaged books: we encourage students to choose a designated dry pocket in their backpack to store books, also by avoiding reading while eating food or having drinks.

Book fairs

Book Fair is one way of bringing the book store right to the school. A book fair promotes love for literacy, the joy of reading, and many more memories of browsing books that spark curiosity and enthusiasm to read and gain knowledge. it is an exclusive opportunity for children to talk to their peers, teachers, and learning commons facilitator about their reading interests. I enjoy the one on one interaction with every child that would like to talk about their favorite book. These interactions give me a clear direction in developing our school library collection which defines the school population's literacy needs. Every Year we bring two top children's publishers, Scholastic and Usborne book fairs right to our school Learning commons during our Student-led conferences in the evenings. These book fairs' sales directly benefit from replenishing our library and classroom collections. The door prizes and classroom wish list grants make our book fair an invaluable experience for the whole school community.

Land Acknowledgment

Rocky View Schools would like to acknowledge the land and recognize all the Indigenous Peoples whose footprints have marked these lands from time immemorial. Together, we can learn and honour the Ways of Knowing of Indigenous Peoples for all future generations.
