Caldecott Medal News

Each year a number of different awards are given out for children's books. One of the most famous is the Caldecott Award. The Caldecott Medal was named in honour of nineteenth-century English illustrator Randolph Caldecott. It is awarded each year by the Association for Library Service to Children, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children. The winner is chosen by a group of people and, this year, one of those people will be from our Area.

"Angela Reynolds, head of youth services at the Annapolis Valley Regional Library, is traveling to Chicago later this month to help decide the 2015 Caldecott winner. She is the only Canadian chosen to serve on this year’s panel and will be helping to pick the year’s most distinguished children’s picture book. There are 14 other members of the Chicago committee and all will bring their own list of seven books to consider." from http://www.annapoliscountyspectator.ca/Living/2015-01-15/article-4008823/Annapolis-Countys-Reynolds-sole-Canadian-on-Caldecott-Medal-selection-committee/1

The winner will be announced on February 2nd. There are many previous winning books in our school library, you might like to sign out some of them.

For Canadian illustrators, the Marilyn Baillie Picture Book Award, established in 2006, honours excellence in the illustrated picture book format. Last year, Mr. Zinger's Cat won the award.

You can read more about Canadian book prizes at the Canadian Children's Book Centre's website.  http://www.bookcentre.ca/award

 

Self-Identification Initiative

Starting February 2, 2015 AVRSB is asking all parents/guardians, staff and students to help us learn more about the diversity of our students, staff and communities. Starting on February 2, 2015, a self-identification form will be provided to all students, and we encourage all parents/guardians to provide information about their child’s ancestry and/or Aboriginal identity.

Please note that self-identification is for everyone. This information will help us to know who our students and staff are, how demographics are changing, and will help us plan how best to support the success of all students. Even if you have self-identified in the past, we want to make sure everyone has a chance to provide or update information, or to add more than one ancestry and/or Aboriginal identity.

Thank you in advance for helping us to collect this information. For further details, please speak to the school administration or visit www.avrsb.ca.

Parents: Do you or your child have an idea for a Publish It! Riverside Press book? Perhaps you have done something special for March Break or maybe you have seen signs of spring or have a story about Lawrencetown in the past. Almost any idea can become a great book for your child to share with family and friends. Even if you have already made a book, you can make another. There is no charge and you get a copy of your book free. It will take about an hour of your time and you don’t need any typing or computer skills. We will help you every step of the way. Books can be made by grandparents as well!!
For more information or to make an appointment, contact: Angie Carreira, 584-3569.

Spectator website.
