School News ~ January 6, 2023

Friday, January 6, 2023

ÍY SȻÁĆEL Sidney Families,

We wish all of our families a Happy New Year as we settle back into our school routines after the break. This month, our school is focusing on the virtue of courage. We see students practicing this virtue often in our school! Students show courage in many ways, including trying something new, making an announcement at school, reading a new book and trying hard things every day. We are so proud of our students at Sidney Elementary. Ask your child how they show the virtue of courage!

The last day to order Hot Lunch for Friday, January 20th is Tuesday, January 10th. Ordering will be open until midnight on that day. PAC is unable to accept late orders as orders need to be submitted to the vendors in advance. Please see ordering information below.
