Did you know…

Research shows that Children who read, or are read to, at home will have a more successful time at school, and in life. Students who read at home will have a better knowledge of the Alphabet and the letter sounds, as well as a richer bank of vocabulary that they can use to become a better writer. Reading allows you to learn almost anything, as it can take you to so many different worlds! Practice, Practice, Practice is SO important. Practice makes progress, and we believe everyone is a capable reader. No matter what level your child is starting from, increased time involved in reading can change their life for the best! We recommend at least 20 minutes of dedicated reading time each night if possible, to help to practice strategies being taught to your child at school, and instill a life-long love of reading and learning! Happy Reading!

Decoding Strategies.jpg


We believe in life long learning. We want to help children use their learning to improve the quality of their lives. We support balanced literacy classrooms, rich, quality classroom and school libraries, best practices in reading, writing, and mathematics, clear learning intentions and student reflection.

We support home reading and home-school partnerships. We feel that having additional languages is a strength. We support integrating Aboriginal and Multicultural perspectives into meaningful learning. We support early intervention and differentiated programming for students based on regular and authentic assessment.

We envision caring classroom communities where children respect each other, accept differences and learn to empathize and solve problems in respectful ways. 

We believe that the experiences that children have at Mulvey School make a difference.
Debbi White – Support Teacher/Co-CAP Coordinator
