Learners are innovative thinkers who are successful, confident, respectful and caring



Our school now has access to a reading app called Sora. It is the Alberta Public School Shared Digital Collection, full of eBooks (including graphic novels, fiction, nonfiction books for all ages), audio books, and magazines. Preferences can be set to everything that is available or to what is currently available, as well as to what format, audience, etc.

You can access it by adding the Sora app or type in the following address: www.soraapp.com/library/apssdcca, then on the drop down menu select “Lethbridge School District No. 51.

 If you are not taken directly to the drop down, click on “My School is Alberta Public School K-12 Shared Digital Collection”, then follow the drop down menu instructions above.

Your child will then be able to sign in using his/her school email and password.

If you have any questions, or trouble accessing Sora, feel free to contact Sarah Baker, Senator Buchanan’s Learning Commons Facilitator at: sarah.baker@lethsd.ab.ca.

Scholastic Books

Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world. It helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word. Even after children learn to read by themselves, it's still important for you to read aloud together.

Independent reading can improve literary skills, increase vocabulary, improve concentration, and develop higher levels of creativity and imagination.

If you are looking to purchase books for your child, Scholastic Books is a great place to order from. There are flyers available in the Learning Commons or click the link above to place an online order.  Please consider using class code RC635469 when purchasing books and our school will earn 20% of the value of the order in rewards. Thank you for your support! Here's to a great year of reading!
