Tecumseh Annex is a vibrant K-3 elementary school in Vancouver. Along with a group of other schools, it is facing potential closure due to a budget shortfall caused by the chronic under-funding of BC schools. In fact, several annexes seem to be targeted in this school closure proposal.
Tecumseh Annex is an example of a primary school that puts the needs of its' students, and their families, first. This school provides excellent education support for all of its' students, regardless of their learning needs. The small size of the school creates a nurturing environment for primary students, who are all known by name. As students age out of the school quickly, they are given a chance to lead from a young age, building confidence and citizenship.
The school acts as a meeting point for diverse cultural groups and allows families to make essential connections. Annexes, and Tecumseh Annex in particular, are essential components of our neighborhoods, and ideal places for our smallest students to belong.
The Tecumseh Annex school community is passionate about keeping our doors open. Please sign this petition to support this cause.
We, the undersigned, ask the Vancouver School Board to keep Tecumseh Annex open.
