Stoney Creek Community School: Primary Literacy  $10,000

We are looking to start a primary reading resource library so that primary teachers are in a better position to meet the diverse needs of their learners in the primary grades. Right now, teachers are pulling from a wide variety of materials and not using a coherent and consistent program across the primary classes. We are looking to use this grant money to purchase a program, as well as additional books for students to provide a more consistent approach to literacy in the primary grades -this would help allow teachers to provide a more balanced literacy program.

We are looking to start by purchasing Scholastic Literacy Place Plus as a starting point. We anticipate also needing to purchase additional books to put in the hands of kids. We have been having ongoing conversations about this for a year and have arrived at this as our best approach and are now seeking the funds to do it. We worked with our District Literacy consultant for the past two years on this project. Teachers have also be part of book clubs and professional development on the topic.

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.
