Building Literacy Skills with SATE
Posted on 02/24/2023
SATE Literacy SessionOn February 8th, York Street Public School welcomed 28 parents and guardians for a Literacy Session presented through the OCDSB’s Student Achievement Through Equity (SATE) Inquiry. The goal of the session was to equip parents of kindergarten and grade 1 students with practical literacy tools that would help them in building their children’s reading, writing and oral language skills.

The session was led by SATE staff Jessica and Lily, who shared helpful strategies and take-away resources. The Ottawa Public Library supported the event by donating books, speaking about their children’s programs and career opportunities for parents, and providing parents an opportunity to register library cards. York Street Public School provided delicious refreshments of fruits, vegetables, and samosas for the event.

Parents and caregivers appreciated the opportunity to discuss ways to build literacy skills at home. Here’s some of the feedback they shared:


“Everything was good. I understand more how my child see and does things differently.”

“YOU JUST ARE THE BEST! I LOVED THAT SESSION. This session helped me because sometimes I forget that my child is exploring a new level in his life and he need out support.”

“It was a great program

Thank you to all those who attended, and to the SATE, York St., and Ottawa Public Library staff who collaborated to make this event possible!
