Big Success at Kiwanis! 

Over 100 students took part in the Kiwanis Music Festival this year and all their hard work really paid off with wonderful performances of a variety of music in both French and English language. With the upcoming Pan Am games who would not be inspired by the Olympic song “J”Imagine” done beautifully by Madame Zamotsney and Madame Lehoux classes. Madame Shaws class performed J’entend le Moulin which clicked along to the sound of the windmill as the students clearly had fund making dynamics reflect the theme. Finally the choir performed two contrasting pieces; one,  a popular game from Trinidad, and the second a melodic mélange of famous Operas. We are very proud of all the participants and very pleased with the results bringing silver and gold back to Sydenham. Way to Go Tigers!

Other events coming up in the arts include:

The Sandcastle Theater – a musical production which has been written by students here at Sydenham. The performance for students will be on Thursday May 7th at 1pm at O.S.C.V.I. and the evening show will take place on Friday May 8th at 7pm  - Tickets are available at Rocking Horse and The Bleeding Carrot for the evening performance.


SCHOOL CLIMATE SURVEY

Boards across Ontario are required to conduct anonymous school climate surveys of their students (Grades 4-12), parents, and school staff at least once every two years.  A safe, inclusive and accepting school environment is essential for student success and well-being. The data collected from these surveys helps to inform school and board planning aimed at preventing bullying and harassment.  Students and staff will be completing the survey electronically between April 20th and May 15th. Student participation is not mandatory, and if you do not wish your child to participate please notify us in writing.

We are asking you to complete a survey as well. The parent survey is available online between April 20th and May 15th and can be accessed through following the link: http://www.edu-climate-surveys.ca/
The required Access Code for Sydenham Community School is available from the school and was on the letter sent home on Friday, April 20th.  
                                                                                                                       
Alternatively, you can request a paper copy of the survey. 
 
It is important that we hear from as many parents as possible.  Thank you for taking the time to provide this important feedback.

Principal's Message from Mme Spragg
As we leave March and Winter behind us, we look forward to spring weather, rubber boots, wind pants instead of snow pants, and at Sydenham lots of mud on the playground.  A reminder to parents to listen to the daily forecasts in order to dress your child appropriately as  temperatures can change significantly during the day.  The playground becomes very muddy in the spring time so rubber boots are a requirement to leave the tarmac. 

At Sydenham we strongly encourage communication between home and school, so please check the website on a regular basis and if you haven't already, sign up to receive email blasts about upcoming events.   If you are unable to make it to the School Community Council, the minutes are available online as well to keep everyone in the loop regarding issues that are being discussed. 

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Michelle LeHoux who will be replacing Mme Jenkins. 

A few dates that we should remember to mark in our calendars:  Fall Fair Kick Off Assembly and Bingo Night on April 29th, and the Family Fun Night on Tuesday, May 12th.  

An additional reminder to grade 8 students that the The Graduation Ceremony will take place on Wednesday June 24th 7-8pm dance to follow until 9:30pm at Sydenham Community School.
