But I didn’t graduate from STS...

Even if you didn’t graduate from STS you are still considered an STS alumni and are invited to attend Homecoming. For those who left STS early, your graduation year is determined by the date you would have graduated if you had finished your schooling at STS.

MOMENTUM EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS

Saturday, APril 29, 2017, we were treated to a fabulous evening where current and former parents, teachers and alumni all came together for a wonderful celebration of STS – past, present and future. Not only was it a very entertaining evening, but Momentum set several new high water marks for STS events. Firstly, it raised more than any single event in STS history significantly surpassing the organizers’ goal with net revenue of $160,000.00! It also had the highest attendance with approximately 400 participants. Proceeds will go directly to the Inspiring Possibilities campaign pushing us over the $25 million mark. This is a remarkable accomplishment and a great testimony to our incredibly supportive community.

I would like to extend my sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Parents’ Organization of STS (POSTS) and the STS Alumni Association who demonstrated teamwork, passion and dedication as partners in planning Momentum. Also to the more than 50 alumni and parent volunteers whose lives were consumed by this event for many months.  I was inspired by all who contributed to this event and how they worked together to achieve something quite remarkable. It is yet another example of how powerful our STS community is when we join together for a common cause.

While it has taken many hands to stage this event, I would like to offer special thanks to the three co-chairs, Shelley Woloski el Baroudi, Faye Steinberg ’89 and Aimee-Jo Benoit ’97. Without their vision, excellent leadership and unwavering dedication, it would simply not have been possible.

I must also thank the many sponsors who provided funds, gifts and services-in-kind, reducing the expenses for the event and ensuring that it was a memorable evening. See the full list of event sponsors here https://www.sts.ab.ca/momentum/thank-you-to-our-sponsors.

As mentioned earlier, all of the funds raised will go directly to the Inspiring Possibilities campaign – taking us that much closer to our final goal of $27 million. Together, we are making the well-rounded STS experience even better by investing in our facilities, our students, and our teachers. In doing so, we are leaving a legacy for future generations, as those before us did for our current community. Thanks to everyone for your support.

Dr. William Jones
Head of School
