Happy Holidays

Session Wrap-up~Winter Session~ Funday Fridays

Connected across Canada

Dear families,


Thank you to everyone for sharing your children's success stories with friends and family. Your stories have reached across the country. There is no better way to trust a service other than referral and word of mouth. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, it means so much that you are sharing your children's success stories. 5 years ago when I started Naturally Literate it was my goal to provide students with the skills and tools to decode English and not have them experience falling through the cracks like I did. This past session I am happy to say welcome to Kate who is joining our community from British Columbia. This past year the digital school has grown to include students in the Yukon Territory, northern Ontario and now B.C. We have entered an era where students who need targeted intervention can now access it from home. What an incredible time we live in.


Our Second very exciting announcement for 2021was the acceptance of services fromJordan's Principle. Where any indigenous child under the age of 18 can access funding to cover various aids to help grant access to services and tools. A parent, teacher, school, First Nation, or guardian can apply for a child. I encourage anyone looking into this funding to reach out to their local Jordan's Principle representative. Link below.This is a huge step in granting accessibility to our First Nation communities and something I was trying to figure out since I started. So much gratitude towards Jordan's Principle for accepting my services and giving a larger population access to direct structured literacy intervention for their children.

Please keep sharing stories and touching moments from your children's learning journeys. They have been working so incredibly hard. They face a mountain and everyday one more door opens to a staircase of understanding. Step by step they are building to the summit where they can look around and see all their opportunities with confidence. Thank you from the light in me to the light in you for your commitment to literacy and support.


Have a wonderful and safe Holidays.


Warmly,

Julia & Lily Dog, Lil'man + Lady Catz
