My name is Tammy Vollo and I am very excited to join the family team at General Stewart School. I have spent the last 5 years of my career supporting students in a school setting through mental health capacity building and six years prior to that working with adults in addictions counselling. I am happy to finally be able to work in my home town to support the students and families of Lethbridge.
My position through Making Connections provides me with a unique opportunity to help not just students but also parents/guardians who may be struggling financially or other obstacles that may be keeping families from being happy and healthy.
My role extends to helping students not just in school but also connecting students and families to resources in the community. If you have any questions about my role or if you think I may be able to help your family, or if you know of a family that goes to General Stewart that you think I might be able to help please send me an email and I'd be happy to see how I can help.
Making Connections does put on events for families throughout the year such as our clothing exchange, family nights (crafts, movies, etc.), and parent info sessions so please make sure you check the school calendar as well.
