Our character education throughout the year is framed as the “Rocket R’s.” Each quarter students are learning about being Respectful, Responsible, & Resilient. Last week, one student from each class was recognized as having demonstrated excellent character at school during the first quarter.

As weather gets colder, please be sure to send your child with the necessary cold-weather gear to play outside. Temperatures and wind are often harsh on our prairie.

If you are dressing up for Halloween this year, parents can take a picture of students wearing their costumes and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line containing the student’s name.

Please send pictures no later than 3:00pm on Tuesday, November 1st to be included.

A special thank you to the Sidney Improvement Group for a $2,500 donation to our Rocket Pack Program; Sidney United Church Women’s Fellowship for a donation toward school supplies; Sidney Christian Church for a school supply drive, and an anonymous family who donated toward lunch account balances of our students. We are truly grateful for the support of our community!
