Pride Month - June 2024

June is Pride Month, and our district joins in celebrating the resilience and contributions of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. The Sea to Sky School District believes that we are responsible for ensuring all schools are inclusive and safe spaces for students, staff and families of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Let's join together to celebrate diversity and create supportive environments where everyone can thrive! After all, one of our core enduring understandings is that "diversity is a strength." Please check out SOGI FAQs for Parents and Caregivers, found under the Families tab on our district website, for answers to common questions about SOGi-inclusive education in SD48.

The Sea to Sky School District joins the nation in honouring Indigenous communities' history, achievements, and resilience. Throughout June, we encourage students, staff, and the broader community to engage with Indigenous stories, traditions and cultures to gain a deeper understanding of First Nations, Inuit and Metis experiences.

Principal's Message

Welcome to École Squamish Elementary!
 
My name is Sarah Hain, the school principal. First off, I am delighted to be at this school!  
 
Our school community is honoured to be learning and playing on the unceded, traditional territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation. We have a wonderful school in the heart of Squamish, BC. 
 
Our team works together to create a school that is safe, kind and positive for all of our students, staff and families. We work towards building and strengthening connections each day and find ways for each student to thrive in their learning while creating authentic relationships.
