I like to believe that I am a beneficiary of the previous generations who invested in me as a youth.Michael Linklater, co-chair of the ELES campaign
It is clear to me that the investment into a student’s educational success must start within the first five years of school.
The Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation realizes that students who are not reading at or above grade level by the third grade have a lower chance of successfully graduating from high school.
This is why the Foundation will soon announce a major fund-raising campaign that will raise $20 million to support students in achieving the critical milestone of Grade three reading in Grade three.
The Campaign will focus on 15 schools to achieve 100 per cent grade three level literacy in five years, beginning in 2021.
