ÍY SȻÁĆEL Sidney Families,

Free Clothing Clipart in AI, SVG, EPS or PSDThank you to all of our families for supporting our clothing swap last week! It was a busy afternoon with many children leaving the gym with bags of “new to them” clothing and also with big smiles! We had so many donations and lots of families came to upcycle clothing. A big thank you to our amazing PAC for organizing this event.

Read Around the School

A reminder to families that we will be hosting Read Around the School on Friday November 25 from 8:45-9:10. Please come and join us in this school wide event where we read with each other and enjoy books together. Please come to your child’s classroom right after our morning announcements if you are able to attend.

PAC Purdy’s Fundraiser Purdys Fundraiser is doing fantastic so thank you for your support! We have until MONDAY to get chocolates:

Last year we raised over $5000!! This year, our goal is to raise $3000 so we need your help—but don’t worry, all the work you're doing is choosing which chocolates to order. Stock up on beautiful gift boxes, fun chocolate lollies, Sweet Georgia Browns and more. All profits will go directly to Sidney Elementary School!

So, satisfy those cravings, get all your gift-shopping done while supporting a great cause. The deadline to order is November 21, 2022 What you need: Campaign number: 98605 Campaign link:

Once orders close, we’ll notify everyone when and where you can collect your treats. Please share with anyone you know who might be interested. It would help us so much. Thank you!

The deadline to order is November 21, 2022

Santa’s Anonymous - Message from Parkland Leadership Students

ImagePlease see the information below from Parkland Leadership students and their fundraising efforts for Santa’s Anonymous. We will be collecting new toys and cash donations at the school to support this cause.


Sidney Elementary Parents/Guardians & Students,

Our names are Lauren, Darian, Layla, and Madi. We are a part of the Leadership Team at Parklands High School.

This holiday season we wanted to give back to our community by starting a fundraiser called A December To Remember which will help us raise money and toys for the CFAX Santa Anonymous. This organization aims towards kids 18 years and younger who aren't as fortunate as us and might not be able to wake up on Christmas morning with gifts under their tree. Every child deserves to wake up on Christmas morning with a sense of holiday spirit. With your help, we believe we can help bring joy to these kids' Christmas.

Toy or money donations are two ways you can help us out. There will be a dropoff box located by the school office. We will also be handing out paper envelopes to each classroom as well to collect cash donations. We will be collecting donations until December 16th. Anything is appreciated!

Thank you,

Lauren, Darian, Layla, and Madi.

Have a wonderful weekend!
