Our School Goals: To improve students ability to read. To increase reading stamina and comprehension. Our Inquiry Question: How will the implementation of Guided Reading and Joyful Literacy intervention strategies, improve student-reading levels? How will providing 30 minutes of uninterrupted daily silent reading time followed by a response log improve student stamina and comprehension?

Coal Tyee continually strives to be a safe, caring and orderly environment for students, staff and parents. We teach, model and encourage socially responsible behaviours that contribute to the school community, solve problems in peaceful ways, value diversity and defend human rights.
