We're so excited that BEST is taking part in the 2017 Adopt a School program, which starts this Saturday!
 
From September 16 to October 8, over 550 high-needs elementary schools across Canada will rally their communities and work to transform their school libraries!

Each participating SCHOOL will receive:
  • Every dollar raised in-store and online to support your students and school library
  • Eligibility for a match of up to $1,200 from the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation
  • 30% off books at Indigo, Chapters and Coles when using program donations
Starting this Saturday, we would encourage all parent and community members to visit the Adopt a School website https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/  search for  Bert Edwards Science and Technology School (BEST) to support our school through the Book Bonus, the Tell a Story, Give a Story matching program and the Adopt a School Story contest! Would you like to donate a book to BEST please sign up at Chapters Adopt a School and share your love of reading. 


Book Bonus:
For every two books donated online to your school, the Love of Reading Foundation will donate an bonus book to your school, up to 100 books!*
 
NEW! Adopt a School Story Contest
The five most-loved stories in each province will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win* a grand prize of a $2,500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books!  The remaining four top “hearted” schools in each province will win a $500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books.  https://adoptaschool.indigo.ca/eng/schools/2007

Tell a Story, Give a Story
Every time an approved story is posted to your school’s Adopt a School profile, the Love of Reading Foundation will donate a book to your school, up to 20 books!*  This is so easy to do, free, and will help our school earn 20 free books.
 
Thanks for sharing your love of reading!
