Welcome Back


We are very excited to welcome you back to another amazing school year at Sycamore. We are now in full swing of the a new school year. With this 3rd week of school, we are on our way to making our students stronger, smarter and more prepared for learning.

Tonight is our 1st PTA meeting of the year followed by Curriculum Night. Please see our schedule below:

5 PM- and 6 PM PTA Meeting- Cafeteria

5:30 PM-6:15 PM-1st round of Curriculum Night (visit classroom/teacher)

6:30 PM-7:15 PM- 2nd round of Curriculum Night (visit classroom/teacher)

This evening is extremely important. You will have an opportunity to meet your child's teacher and get information that you will need to make your child's experience the most positive that it can be. We look forward to seeing you!

PTA Notes


Please take a moment to pay your $5.00 membership fee so that we can build our PTA. We will have our 1st meeting tonight and hope that you will be able to attend.

Also, please join us for our Back to School Dance! We will have a professional DJ this year and we can't wait to dance the night away with you. Please wear Neon colors and make sure that you accompany your child. No students may attend without adult supervision. Food, and fun is 3 days away!

Thank you for also supporting the PTA's Cookie Dough fundraiser! We appreciate your support!

School Communication-Changes

We are no longer allowed to send text messages through Messenger. For emergency needs, we will send emails through this feature only. We will also bridge these messages to our Sycamore ES Facebook page. The district will send out emergencies ONLY through the text feature, however, schools are only allowed to send emails.

We miss this feature, as it was a great way to communicate with parents and our community. However, we hope to keep you informed on our website, Principal's Desk, and social media pages.

We are waiting for approval to utilize Class Dojo as well since it also is an app that uses "Push Notifications," for communication.

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.
