Igniting Star Potential with Constellations at Strathcona

Igniting Star Potential with Constellations at Strathcona

Dear Strathcona Parents,

Introducing Constellations—a stellar initiative designed to shoot your child's potential into orbit. Discover new galaxies with us at Constellations.fun or through our Facebook page.

Our Pilot Mission : Stellar Strings

Blast off with a 6-week (Nov 15- Dec 20) ukulele course, led by our cosmic Squad Leader from Chilliwack Academy of Music. For $50, your Star can strum their way into a musical universe.

What is Constellations

More than an after-school pitstop; it's a launchpad for our young Stars. Aiming to fuel their interstellar curiosities and broaden horizons—from art to astro-physics.

How it Works

Stars: Strathcona students are Stars ! Our radiant young students whose enthusiasm and brilliance bring life to every mission.

Squad Leaders: These are your mission Commanders. Local domain experts to impact their experiences onto our Stars. After each mission, Stars and their families have the opportunity to rate the experience, shaping future voyages.
Mission Control: Earth-based parent volunteers piloting enriching missions. Join our crew!

Financial Orbit

Let's be clear—this is a community effort. All fees go toward mission operations. If your family needs a booster, use the coupon code STARSAVER to reserve spots, then reach out to school administration; we're committed to making sure all Stars have the chance to shine.

About the Chilliwack Academy of Music

Our inaugural co-pilots are the Chilliwack Academy of Music—a venerable institution dedicated to musical enlightenment. They are an instrumental (pun intended!) part of our launch, but we plan to establish future partnerships as we expand to include a myriad of activities and subjects.

Future Trajectory

The sky is hardly the limit. We envision a constellation of opportunities, spearheaded by educators, domain experts, and community groups. Think you have what it takes to be a Squad Leader, know a great group, want to volunteer?, or have a wish for a specific topic? We would love to hear from you.

The Fine Print

While Constellations acts as a bridge between Strathcona School and external experts, it's crucial to clarify that we operate as an independent entity. We do not represent Strathcona School, the Chilliwack School District, or any third-party groups. Constellations serves as the liaison, and all collected funds are allocated for programming, advertising, and equipment..

Get Involved

Your gravitational pull as a volunteer or Squad Leader could be the missing link in our galaxy.

May our Stars align as we voyage through this cosmic journey!

For the initial pilot project, it is only for Grades 2-5. If successful, we hope to expand to other grades and host larger classes in the new year.

This sounds like fun, what ages are eligible and what are the hours?

Shayla Gillanders

I can find what grades this is for… what is the age or grades for this program?
