Principal's Message

Dear Sunnyside Families,

Welcome back Sunnyside students and families. I hope that you were able to find some time to restore and spend quality time with family and friends. As summer comes to an end, it is time to gear up for another exhilarating school year. On behalf of our faculty and staff, I would like to offer a warm welcome to all of our returning families, as well as those families entering Sunnyside for the first time. 

We are eager to have students bustling around the building, while engaging in authentic learning experiences.  We invite you to experience this learning first-hand by attending our Back-to-School Night on Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 6:00pm.

Please join me in welcoming the following new teachers and staff to Sunnyside School:

Dana Drysdale - ALC Special Education Teacher

Jessica Welsh - Gr 2 Teacher

Ashley Wenta - Gr 3 Teacher

Allissa Dempsey - Gr 4 Teacher

Tammy Moore- Building Substitute

Melinda Walwer – Music Teacher

Joseann Williams – Paraprofessional

Sarah Reinold – Paraprofessional

Elizabeth Tomaszewicz - Paraprofessional

Susan Krauss - Full-time TESOL

Michelle Lucas - Academic Interventionist

We are excited to have these qualified educators part of our Sunnyside family and confident that each of these members will make positive contributions to the Sunnyside community!As we prepare for the 2019-20 school year, we are constantly brought back to our mission at Sunnyside – to empower confident, life-long learners through rigorous instruction and experiences, while creating a climate of acceptance and open communication to support students’ social and emotional needs. We strive to build upon the learning and successes of previous years. Staff will be concentrating on the revisions to the curriculum during their Professional Learning days prior to the launch for the first day of school. This includes continuing to provide students with a variety of skills and content knowledge that promote higher order thinking, creative problem solving and self-exploration. As always, we will focus our energies on fostering a nurturing and safe school environment through our “Tiger PRIDE” philosophy.

Sunnyside is proud to again participate in the Governor’s Summer Reading Challenge.  We are hoping to surpass last year’s 81% participation level to achieve 100% this summer!  We hope you have enjoyed reading with your child and taking this on as a family. We thank you in advance for supporting this program. Please assist your child with recording all of the books he/she has read this summer on the challenge bookmark sheet. If that sheet is full, you can record additional titles on a separate sheet of paper.  The more books read and recorded the better! Please remember to place your child’s summer reading information in his/her book bag no later than Friday, September 13th…feel free to send in on the first day of school.  All students that participate and meet their grade level expectations will receive a treat from the ice cream truck at the end of September.

Communication is critical to the success of everyone’s day. Our primary way of communicating with our families is through IC messenger/ email. Please inform the main office if your email changes or adding another contact. If you feel that you are not receiving our emails, check your spam folder or contact the main office. I welcome and value your input. My door is open, so feel free to stop in or make an appointment to discuss any concerns, suggestions or ideas to help make this a successful year. 

Warmest Regards,

Amy Yost
