Junior Brooklyn Koester stands next to a Flow period supplies dispenser.

SHS junior, Brooklyn Koester, noticed that some of her friends and classmates would not always have period products during an unexpected emergency and might have to miss class or leave school.

When she started to research this more, she realized attendance can increase when free period products are offered in schools so she created Club Red Shelby County to raise money and awareness about period poverty and provide products for free at Sidney High School.

When students are healthy, feel safe, and are supported through strong systems and relationships, they are more likely to enjoy learning, develop positive social skills, and achieve greater success. With that in mind, Sidney City Schools is committed to strengthening the school community through partnerships between parents, students, the school, and the community. 

Last school year, Sidney City Schools proudly introduced Parent University—a program meant to further support parents and guardians in their journey of raising children. Seeing great value in the workshops and presentations, the district plans to continue this school-family partnership program in which parents and guardians are invited to join our community of learners.

Parent University is a combination of workshops and presentations, all centered around students and families with the purpose of growing together and preparing everyone for success.
