A book drive for Parkdale Elementary School was launched at a press conference on April 21. Federal Liberal leader Stephane Dion, the Member of Parliament for the area, was in attendance to lend his support. Principal Jacklin Webb says this initiative came about as a result of a real team effort. Parkdale is partnering with the CSSS de Bordeaux-Cartierville-Saint-Laurent, Transcontinental Imprimerie, the borough of St. Laurent and the office of Mr. Dion. This effort is to put more books at the disposal of students in the school as we emphasize the importance of literacy. Some books will remain at school and others will be given to students to take home. The theme of the book drive is: Un livre aujourd’hui—réussir demain/ A book today—success tomorrow. Mr. Dion presented the school with two large dictionaries to get the book drive started.
