Welcome to the Windsong Heights Learning Commons

If you have any questions or need help finding anything, please contact Ms. Lawson, the Learning Commons Facilitator. Ms. Lawson is available by phone at 403-945-4149 or by email.

Discovered a library book over the summer?

That is okay! Please return it to the Learning Commons during your first week of school. Thank you!

New for the 2022-2023 school year

Our learning commons layout for the 2022-2023 school year features an area for both younger students and older students. Special themes will be featured in both areas on a bi-weekly or monthly basis. Students will also get to experience various hands-on activities including but not limited to bookmark making, crafts, gardening, and special visits.

Class visits

K to Grade 3: This year in the learning commons students in Grades Kindergarten to Grade 3 will continue to enjoy carpet time with our Learning Commons facilitator. Every three to four weeks students will participate in an activity happening in the learning commons. Students will continue to sign out 1 book each week to take home and enjoy:

  • Kindergarten has their books for 1 week;

  • Grade 1-3 have their books for up to 3 weeks.

Grade 4 to 8: This year students in these grades will learn how to use the self-checkout kiosk to be able to sign out their own books. While visiting the library classes will be encouraged to explore the monthly activities and themes occurring in the learning commons area.
