Shubenacadie District School
Adopted by: Indigospirit Sunnyside Mall
Our school is one that highly values literacy. With the Covid shutdown last year, we had many students who had previously been doing well in literacy have some regression. Since returning, we have placed a strong emphasis on reading and writing and have spent lots of our money on guided reading books and books for classroom libraries. This includes spending money on Indigenous centric reading material, to support our Mi'kmaq readers and wanting them to be able to read about their culture, put emphasis on Treaty Education in reading, learn about Mi'kmaq ways of being and knowing, and be inspired to read. We have had many students make great gains in their reading this year, and think with an influx of books that this grant would provide, we could continue that growth next year, and create lots of excitement and engagement with reading.
