The Principal's Desk At Sycamore ES
May 16, 2016: The Last full week of school- 8 more days
With National Educator Bosses week upon us this week, I would like to extend my gratefulness to you my Sycamore family. This year has been very memorable with all that we have done. We have made so many strides and accomplishments and as the "one in charge," I can't be happier.
I love my job and get up every day with a joyous
heart,because I adore my staff and students so much! I look forward to these last eight days of school where I will bond with our students even more. On Friday, I will participate in a fun Fundraiser to raise funds for our great PTA! I am agreeing to be taped to the wall for $1.00 per strip! This should be hilarious but worth every minute of it!
funand memories...Why not!?
Thank you for making my job easier and worthwhile! See you around for Awards days!
GADOE waives promotion, retention requirements for Milestones tests
On May 5, 2016, the State Board of Education granted a waiver of promotion, placement, and retention requirements tied to the 2016 administration of the Georgia Milestones End of Grade (EOG) tests. As a result, Gwinnett County Public Schools will use grades to determine promotion and retention for students at the elementary and middle school levels. Once final grades are determined, local schools will communicate with parents of students recommended for summer school. Students who may be eligible for summer school received letters on Friday indicating their most recent status. Confirmation will be made on Friday, May 20th.
This Week at Sycamore:
Tuesday: 9AM 2nd grade awards; 6 PM PTA General Meeting and Student Dance Performance
Wednesday: 9 AM Kindergarten awards
Thursday: 9 AM 3rd grade awards
Friday: 9 AM 1st grade awards; 7:45 AM All Pro Dads; Tape Ms. Thompson Fundraiser $1.00; Yogli Mogli Night
Sycamore Family-Thank you for being supportive of Weekend Events
many of our staff members attended the annual Relay for Life Event at Gwinnett Fairgrounds. Our team sold items that would go toward Cancer research and support. On Saturday, the Sugar Hill City Hall welcomed hundreds of visitors for our 1st Annual Maker Fair. What a success! We had a chance to sell hand-made items made by our own students and several types of vegetable plants. Customers were also able to make necklaces or just get to know us more. We turned out in great numbers and appreciate any of you who were able to attend. It is a great feeling to be able to call you family.
A Cure for Kaylee
Thank you- PBIL Fair
Every grade level worked hard to promote their inventions, inform us about a new idea or show us their research findings. Students had a chance to practice social skills too through this great event. Thank you to our kindergarten staff for a successful communities extravaganza! It is always fun to watch our students learn how to make the best of the day! It was indeed a fun time for all. Go Sycamore!
