ÍY SȻÁĆEL Sidney Families,

We would like to wish all of our families a relaxing weekend and we hope that you are able to enjoy time together to celebrate Family Day.

There are many activities around Sidney to enjoy for Family Day, including this event at the Sidney Museum

A reminder that tomorrow, February 17th, is a Non-Instructional Day, so students are not in session.


Purdys Chocolatier Fundraiser ALL chocolate-lovers! We’re teaming up with Purdys Chocolatier to fundraise for supporting the Reflex Math Program in hopes of raising $1000! Stock up on your favourite Purdys Easter treats (did someone say Hedgehogs?) AND support a great cause at the same time—it’s the best of both worlds. All fundraising profit raised will directly support Sidney Elementary School PAC, so every order makes a great difference to us. Ordering is as easy as eating chocolate. Just click this link fill out your info, you’ll need an email address, click “Join Campaign”, enter campaign number - 98605, and order to your heart’s content!

The order deadline is March 1st, so get shopping!
