Success Stories - Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation

Celebrating success through unique programming

Programs of Excellence was created to provide members of the Saskatoon Public Schools community with the opportunity to apply for additional funding for unique programs that will offer enhanced educational opportunities for students. This initiative allows the Foundation to engage the community in inspiring projects that help students be their best.

Grant applications align with the Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation’s priorities of: Literacy, Healthy Active Schools, and Empowering Innovation.

We are pleased to share stories that illustrate how Program of Excellence Grants are supporting creativity in education and inspiring new opportunities for learning that benefit students, staff and schools.
