Sycamore Sidelines

November 4, 2021

Principal's Message

Welcome back from an incredible fall break! It was great to see all of the children and teachers excited to be back at school! Our staff had a great professional development day, I want to thank all of our Sycamore parents for helping our children log on and complete assignments. If your family was not able to complete assignments on Tuesday, you do have until November 9th to complete e-learning assignments.


On another note, this is the time of year where we need to be aware that the weather outside changes on a daily basis. As the temperature begins to change, please make sure that your children are prepared with appropriate clothing for outdoor recess. All students will go outside, except during inclement weather, and should dress appropriately (coat, hat, gloves, etc.). ACSC uses the following guidlelines: If the temperature with wind chill is at or above 20 degrees, students will have outdoor recess.


ACSC administers the Cognitive Abilities Test, or CogAT, to all students in Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grades to measure students reasoning and problem solving skills using different types of verbal, quantitative and nonverbal questions. The testing window for 2nd and 4th grade is November 3-19 and the test is administered in a group setting. 2nd grade students will take the full battery of the CogAT in a paper-pencil format, while 4th grade students will take the full battery of the CogAT in an online testing format. Kindergarten students will take a shorter screener version (paper-pencil) of the CogAT. The Kindergarten testing window is December 1-15th.


Sincerely,


Nicole Harris
