The Principal's Desk At Sycamore

October 28, 2018

Dr. Crystal Cooper Thompson, Principal


Thank you for all of your support and activity with our school this week. Seeing you visit our teachers to hear about your child's progress was appreciated and admirable. We know that this will help your child soar. The partnership that you have created and desired to sustain, speaks volumes of your amazing parenting. We see you and will always welcome you into our school doors!

Also, thank you for sending in your students with $1.00 to support United Way last week. The students were eager to participate and all funds earned will support our school and the surrounding community. Thank you for your sacrifice.

Our canned food drive couldn't have been successful without you as well. Having our children bring in canned goods to show support for others was appreciated and a great way for them to see what giving back looks and feels like.

Friendly Reminders

  • All visitors will be asked at the door who they are and their reason for entering the building by our front desk clerk. Always have your ID ready to show every time. Vanessa Camacho-Chapparo is our new front desk clerk and is happy to join our team. Please be patient with our new district requirement that ensures a stronger and safe environment for our school community.
  • We will begin our morning announcements at 8:45 AM daily and ask that all car riders are in their seats ready to begin their day prior to 8:45 AM.
  • We are going to use Mypaymentsplus for all of our monetary transactions besides small fundraisers throughout the year. Please make sure that you sign up for this with the information below.
  • We are infusing social emotional learning with our PBIS discipline program. Every classroom will have morning meeting daily where they will greet one another, share something based on a focused topic, engage in an activity and end with a morning message. This 10 minute activity every day ties to our AKS, but also helps to start the day off positively. Ask your child about the amazing experience.
