Principal Richelle Thomas
Strong literacy skills inspire all students to reach their full potential. At George Davison School, we have a diverse student population of 355 students in ELP-Grade 6 (ages 4-12). One of our foremost goals is to ensure that each and every one of our students achieve basic literacy skills. In our current library collection, our students enjoy reading various fiction and non-fiction books of personal interest. We try our best to meet the literacy needs and interests of each student. However, much of our current non-fiction collection is aging (approximately 10-15 years old). If we are selected to participate in the 2018 Adopt a School program, we will use the funds provided to continue updating and expanding our current library collection.
Additionally, we believe strongly in our library serving as a Learning Commons within the school where all students can access the different materials (e.g. books, periodicals, reference resources, etc.) necessary to thrive in their learning. We will also use any funds raised to ensure that students of all ages within our school have the opportunity to read new and engaging literature that captures their interests and motivates them to develop a love of reading. Thank you for your consideration of George Davison School as part of the 2018 Adopt a School Program. We truly believe that with your support we can inspire all of our students to enhance their literacy skills and reach their full potential!
