Remembrance Day

School News ~ November 4, 2022

Hello Sidney Families,

Raindrops, Happy Raindrops, Umbrellas and Rain Boots Clipart | TpT

The rainy and colder weather has arrived! We would like to remind our families that we want to have our students out in the fresh air and enjoying their recess and lunch breaks with active play. Please make sure that your children arrive with appropriate footwear and outerwear for the day's forecast.

Many of our Sidney Bees love jumping in puddles and so it is recommended that a spare pair of pants and socks are kept in their backpack to help avoid feeling wet and cold throughout the day.

Host an International Student!

Tuesday morning at drop-off, Homestay Coordinators from the Saanich International Student Program (SISP) will serve coffee/tea and snacks at our front entrance and share opportunities for hosting an international student with Sidney Families. They are looking for host families for international students attending Parkland for the second semester, as well as for the 2023 - 2024 school year. If you would like to know more about hosting an international student, please come by and see them!

Clothing Swap

Our PAC is hosting a Clothing Swap in the gym on Thursday November 10 from
3-4 pm. They have received a lot of donations so please come by and take clothing for your child(ren). This is an amazing way to reuse clothing. The clothing swap is open to all families. We hope to see you there!

Remembrance Day

We will have our Remembrance Day Assembly on November 10 at 10:15am. Families are welcome to attend, but we do have limited space and seating. Students who are involved in Brownies, Cubs, Beavers, or any other service organization are welcome to wear their uniforms to school on that day.

Lost and Found: Has your child come home without their coat or a hoody lately, then please come and check the lost and found; there are lots of items in there. It has been laid out in the front foyer and will be on display until after school on Monday, November 7.

Have a wonderful weekend!
