Staffing Update

We would like to provide information regarding some staffing updates at Sydenham P.S.


M. Emmerton, core French and planning time teacher, is on a leave until the end of December. We welcome Mme Danika Churchill who will be teaching Core French and planning until his return.


We are also welcoming Mr. Drew Paul, who has filled our 0.15 planning time position. He will be with us on Day 1 and 2 afternoons.


Both Mr. Paul and Mme Churchill are joining a fabulous school community and students have already given them a warm Sydenham welcome.

Library Fundraiser Reminder

Please support Ms. Warren to help our school library by coming to Indigo (Cataraqui Town Centre) on Friday, November 12th. You can go anytime throughout the day to make your purchases, just make sure to tell the staff at the cash that you are supporting the Sydenham PS fundraiser! All proceeds will go towards buying books for the library. This is a great time to start your holiday shopping. Thank you so much for your support!

Remembrance Day

At Sydenham P.S. today, students attended a virtual Remembrance Day assembly in class and we also had a brief outdoor ceremony. Students stood outdoors and listened to Last Post followed by a moment of silence and Reveille. Students then "planted" poppies in our peace garden which was decorated with peace rocks made by students in Ms.McCourt's class.

We also had two senior students represent Sydenham P.S. by laying a wreath at the ceremony held today at City Park. We are so proud of our students and the respect and reflection they showed in our Remembrance Day activities.

School Advisory Council

Please join us for our next meeting (on-line) on Monday, November 15th at 5:30 p.m.
