Elementary School Encore Group Winter Giving Campaign

Elementary School Encore Group Winter Giving Campaign

Giving back to the community made me feel amazing, helpful, and all warm and fuzzy inside. Purchasing gifts and imagining seeing the smile on people’s faces when they receive them is an exceptional feeling. I encourage anyone to help their community in any way they can. When a community comes together, many small donations can go a long way.

Cross-Country Skiing/Snowshoeing at STS

The STS campus is a winter wonderland in January so we invite you to bring your friends and family for an afternoon of cross country skiing and/or snowshoeing. What a great way to spend an afternoon - frolicking in the snow.  After we're done, you're invited to stay for hot chocolate, coffee, cappuccino, or tea - all served with cookies!

Supporting health and wellness during difficult times

It was quite an atypical year to say the least! STS worked hard to encourage student engagement and reduce feelings of isolation during several months of RAPID (Remote Alternate Program Instructional Delivery), due to the COVID-19 pandemic. From themed days like crazy hat day and bring-a-stuffed-animal-to-zoom, to our own version of the newscast 'Some Good News', students had opportunities to connect and have a good laugh. 

Fall Backpacking trips

It was a very different fall for STS outdoor education trips. Adaptability and personal agency* are two of the life skills we hope students will further develop through their STS outdoor experiences and there have been few years when the learning opportunities have been more broad, real, and obvious than this year. 

Nil Nisi Optimum

Nil Nisi Optimum (NNO) Alumni are selected from a multitude of decades and professions, and have brought great honour and pride to their alma mater. This year, three more alumni who have demonstrated notable accomplishments in leadership, service and dedication to their professions and community joined this prestigious group. 

Innovation, creativity, and connection in the midst on a pandemic

In March 2020, when schools around the world had to close their doors to keep students, staff and their loved ones safe, at STS we made a firm commitment to our families: a promise to not only finish the school year and cover the required outcomes, but to continue to provide enrichment and a strong sense of community while ensuring our students flourished and succeeded.
