Principal's Message

Welcome to our website and we are so excited that you have stopped by to have a look at our amazing school. We have been busy making our school healthy and safe for all community members coming into our site.  Students have returned to class and we are so grateful to see them filling our classrooms with smiles and laughter.  
 
We are still unsure how September will look but we are keen to get things ready for the students to return.  Our teachers have been planning fun and exciting activities for next year and look forward to welcoming everyone back to our school.
 
We believe that all children have the right to a quality inclusive education where they can be themselves and excel at their passions.  Learning is about engagement and connection as well as being authentic and meaningful.  At Stawamus School we are a family and community that values respect, integrity, kindness and effort.  
 
 
DISTRICT MESSAGE:
 
Sea to Sky School District has a clear mission: the success of all students. The District has high expectations for excellence across the curriculum—in academics, athletics, fine arts and career programs. There is also a keen awareness that students learn best in a safe, secure and respectful environment supported by strong connections between school and community.
 
The School District is unique in the diverse communities it serves. There are three major population centres: Squamish, Whistler and Pemberton. The District also serves six Aboriginal communities: Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw, Lil’wat Nation, N’Quatqua Band, Samhquam Ucwalmicw, Skatin Nations, Xa’xtsa and the Metis, Inuit and Off-Reserve Aboriginal Nations.
 
Even though each community has its own unique set of needs and interests, there is a spirit of collaboration at work in the District reflected in our vision statement:
 
“Students love to learn here!”
