J.R. Wilcox Community School

Toronto, Ontario 145 / 340 Books Given

Principal Natalie Vine J.R. Wilcox is a small community school with a big heart! We are an inner city Toronto District School Board (TDSB) school with a diverse population of 340 students ranging from JK-grade 8. Currently, our library is well used, well loved and well in need of revitalization. Our school council has been fundraising for nearly 2 years with a focus on our library, but due to the large cost of this project we have not yet met our goal. Our first phase was to work towards a class set of computers in the library, and thus far we have been able to purchase ten. With your assistance, students will have improved access to new literacy resources to help them reach their potential. Our students, staff, and parent community would be overcome with gratitude and joy if you we were to be adopted.
