Principal's Message
clip_image002.pngPoppy (Remembrance Day)
A little late for this year, but while the subject is on my mind, I thought I might make some Rememberance Day images. 
\nBased on PD photo of poppy on lapel found on wikipedia.
Some of the highlights from October are Photo Day, a great first pajama day, bus evacuation training, a cross country meet, a Make-a-Wish presentation and Halloween festivities.  Check out the website for pictures from our first pajama day and Halloween Festivities.

Sydenham is using a new  school photo company this year called Photovision.  They provide year-long support to Sydenham. 

Me to We sponsored a Halloween dance to support Me to We’s We Scare Hunger.   $624.31 was raised.  An immense thank you to the Me to We committee and specifically the following students and parents who made this event happen:  Sierra Reid, Ava Guindon, Antonia  Murdoch, Angelina Dimakos, and parents Miranda Morrison, Nathalie Reid, Jay Murdoch and Maria Canton.  In addition, a special thank you to community sponsors who generously donated items for the event:  D.C. Taylors, Attack Hockey Club, E-Embroidery, Dr. Cobblers, Shortys, Roxy Theatre, Rocking Horse, Locking Business Furnishings, Royal Bank, Turtle Crossings Toy Store, Scenic City Games and Golden Repair. 

As we look to November, we will be celebrating Remembrance Day with a short assembly.  A reminder that students will dress in black and white on November 11th as a demonstration of respect. 

Please continue to check the Sydenham School website and the school calendar for updates regarding upcoming school activities and events.
