Vinery Program: Technology and Literacy  $1,000

Ball chairs support students with attention difficulties and improve their ability to stay at their desks and concentrate by providing them with an opportuity for movem. Books / novels will be purchased to encourage student engagement in literacy and offer high-interest, appealing books that will be available to students in the classroom. Students will also have agency in selecting the books, ensuring that books are of interest to them.

Several ball chairs will be purchased to be shared by students as needed. Class will take a fieldtrip to Kidsbooks (local bookstore) and each student will choose 2 books. Students will read their chosen books and present a book report to the class over the year. The books will then remain in the classroom and be the foundation of a class library.

For a decade, Adopt-a-School's primary focus has been on ensuring that students aren’t hungry, are clothed and have learning experiences that will enable them to fulfill their potential. The Vancouver Sun and its readers recognized and responded to the pressing needs of children and youth. Since 2011, readers have recognized how hard it is to learn when you’re hungry and have donated around $6.5 million to the Adopt-a-School campaigns.

But as COVID has highlighted, learning is harder still without the necessary technology and tools. During the pandemic, more than ever, children and youth are suffering with anxiety and depression.  They need safe spaces to go and schools can be that. And if schools are forced to close again, how many families won’t have what their children need to Zoom to class or do their homework?

The applications here are requests for technology and literacy tools to help support the students' education. Not as urgent as food security, perhaps, but equally necessary for the ongoing development of these children.

Any designated donations received for these technology and literacy programs will be disbursed to assist the schools with their needs.
