John Muir Elementary School - Sooke, British Columbia

John Muir Elementary School

Adopted by: Coles Westshore Town Centre  

At John Muir Elementary School, we are seeing more children coming into Kindergarten with language deficits and speech concerns. We believe that if we are able to provide more literacy resources to our school, teachers and families our students will benefit greatly.

Covid-19 has impacted schools in multiples ways. Specifically at John Muir, we found that families being restricted to regular access to relevant and meaning books in the schools was a problem . We also found that a lack of consistency in reading books on a regular basis and that this was directly conflicted with the amount of screen time required for remote learning. Another impact was student access to relevant and supportive reading that a school library provides. Finally, we found a lowered capacity for parents to teach reading skills and support developing readers at home.
