End of the Year Message

The last day of school is a day of mixed feelings – excitement for the adventures summer will bring and sadness when we say goodbye to the people we have shared the year with.​​​

We have a lot to celebrate as we reflect on the 2021 – 2022 school year. 

Connections:  Our staff and students built strong connections this year even when we couldn't gather together, first with homeroom classes and then with the whole school, as health restrictions were relaxed.  All students have benefited from being able to work with older or younger students through buddies and learning activities.

Collaboration:  Working with School Council, we were able to provide residencies and experiences for our students including: Engineering for Kids, DrumFit, swimming lessons and Wymbin movement.  We are excited to announce that construction of our Learning Circle outdoor classroom will begin soon.  Stop by the school this summer to see the progress!

Community:  After over 2 years of virtual meetings, we were so pleased to invite our parent community back into the school for our Open House in April, assemblies and volunteering!


Staff Farewells:

  • We are sad to say goodbye to Mrs. Melanie Palmer (kindergarten, music and targeted intervention teacher) and wish her all the best in her new position as Learning Leader at Eric Harvie School.
  • We also say goodbye and thank you to Mrs. Saliem Mehari who has been our cleaner for the past 2 years. 


On behalf of our staff, I would like to thank you for trusting us with your children every day and allowing us to be part of their journeys. 

To students and families who are leaving Sunnyside, we wish you all the best.  You will always be connected to Sunnyside School. 

To students returning next year, we can't wait to see you on September 1.  Information about Back to School can be found here: Back to School


Have an amazing summer!
