They are currently in 3rd place for ONTARIO SCHOOLS for a contest that could win them new books for their library.
It’s the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation Adopt-A-School contest.
The five most-loved stories in each province will be entered into a random draw for a chance to win a $2,500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books for their adopted school. The remaining four top “hearted” schools in each province will win a $500 Indigo eGiftcard to purchase books.
Each school submitted a story to be voted on.
Here is part of the story Monsignor Morrison submit
Tsih si wtha rdeangi kloos lkei ot me.
I am Dyslexic. And I could not read until I was 14.
My learning disability went undiagnosed until I was in the 9th grade. I had an amazing English teacher who recognized that I was struggling with reading and comprehension. If I was read to, I understood the information. But reading was like torture to me. The words do not make sense. They move around the page. And I have to reread the same sentence numerous times to get information from the words.
Mrs. Standing was her name. And I owe Mrs.Standing so much more than just recognition for helping me to become a valuable member of my community. She put me on the path that led me to the rest of my life. She spent an entire year with me in the library teaching me to remap my brain by reading Encyclopedia Britannica, and understanding when my brain needed a break. She would bring enough lunch for both of us, and she taught me the most valuable lesson life has to give. To love yourself.
