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!

Say Yes as a Team

It's 7:00 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and the sounds of sneakers on the floor and athletes calling for the ball drift out from the Sandy Heard Sports Centre. It's not just any normal Tuesday, it's the first day of school in September and the gym is filled with about 30 students working hard and having fun together for volleyball team tryouts, before classes have even started. 

Paying it Forward

The sense of community at Strathcona-Tweedsmuir School (STS) is deep, crossing multiple generations. Todd and Esther Worsley say they are “big fans of the STS community” not only for the great education in the classroom, but for the caring relationships that develop between teachers, staff, and students.
