Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

Thanks to stu­dents Jus­tine Provencher, Mar­i­anne Darby, Ly­dia Tous­sain and Shawn Pax­ton, the Alexan­der Galt High School li­brary is in the fi­nal run­ning to win $15,000 for li­brary ren­o­va­tions from the Sub­way con­test. But peo­ple have only un­til May 12th to vote on­line for the pro­ject, one vote per per­son per day. Here is the link:­cours/ton-pro­jet-sub­way/un.php?id=4.

This li­brary, which is so ap­pre­ci­ated by the Galt stu­dents for its many in­ter­est­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, is cer­tainly de­serv­ing of sup­port for this con­test. A small ex­am­ple of some of the in­ter­est­ing things that li­brar­i­ans Ju­dith Munger and Dale David­son have go­ing on in their li­brary could in­clude yes­ter­day’s “Bik­ing smoothie” event which at­tracted 300 stu­dents to the li­brary over the lunch hour to get a smoothie that was made by bi­cy­cle power. To­day, the li­brar­i­ans will host a “Med­i­ta­tion and her­bal tea tast­ing” fol­lowed by a “Pi­lates stretch­ing”. “We want to pre­pare stu­dents for the fi­nal ex­ams so they don’t panic!” com­mented Ms. Munger in an email. This week’s li­brary dis­play is ti­tled: “Don’t be de­pressed be­fore ex­ams…” and will in­clude tips, in­for­ma­tion and book sug­ges­tions to make exam time a lit­tle eas­ier.

The level 2 stu­dents from Ms. Lord and Ms. Chouinard’s classes cre­ated ma­que­ttes of world land­marks, such as this one of the Krem­lin Palace, that are be­ing dis­played in the school’s li­brary.
