International Volunteer Day

Volunteers rock big time! Join us in celebrating the immeasurably valuable contributions of volunteers in our world.  From those involved in international organizations to those who work informally at the local level, volunteers make a massive, positive impact on society.

Back in 1985 the United Nations established International Volunteer Day and since then people all over the world have been celebrating on December 5 of each year.

At Lord Tweedsmuir we are especially thankful for the many volunteers who work on the Library Team.  Please make sure you express your thanks to these students who serve their classmates, teachers and other staff with such diligence.  As an added bonus, we are pleased to invite all of our Library Team volunteers to a Christmas Party / Appreciation Lunch on Tuesday, December 15.  Stay posted for more details!

Take Your Kids to Work Day

Thanks to all the kids who came to work in the library on “Take Your Kids to Work Day.” While most of them will spend the rest of their lives remembering this great day, and will yearn for another chance, sadly most of them will never work in a library again. Cherish the memories!

One of these kids belongs to the Teacher Librarian. The others just wanted to be here because whatever their parents do clearly pales in comparison to the mighty work of the Teacher Librarian! Not to mention the chance to spend a day with Buck the Library Duck.
