Dear Siwanoy Families,

Happy Friday! Just so you know, here at Siwanoy, we wear orange for Unity Day and to support bullying prevention. During Unity Day on Wednesday, students created paper quilts, learned about how to stand up to bullying, wore orange, and so much more to show their support. Please continue to talk to your students about how to be an upstander and to continue to try to stop bullying for good!

Kindergarten Playground

Great news! Construction on our new playground will begin this weekend with the removal of the old structure. Installation will hopefully begin on Wednesday and last for about a week (weather depending). This has been a long time coming and we are so fortunate to have this done for our kiddos. Thank you to Mr. Condon, Mr. Warren, Mr. Hricay and our Board of Education for helping to see this through!
