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 Valleycliffe Elementary School!
 
We are honoured to be learning on the unceded traditional territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Nation. We have a beautiful little school in the Valleycliffe community of Squamish, BC.
 
Together our staff, students and families work together to create a safe, kind, and caring school culture. Our focus is on creating a sense of belonging while building, maintaining, and strengthening connections each day. We create authentic tasks that help our students learn competency-based skills that help them grow as a learner.   
 
 We hope you enjoy our school and community!
