6th Grade Celebration

6th Grade Parents:


It’s hard to believe, but our 6th Grade Celebration is just a few days away! We are looking forward to celebrating on Tuesday, May 31st from 5:00-7:00pm. DJ Spicy Noodle will be providing music during the event! Outside, kids will be able to enjoy 9 Square and other recess activities. Inside, students can play Swamp Ball and jump in the Bounce Houses. Pizza, chips, and cake will also be provided for the students.


*Students must have socks to use the bounce houses.


Dropoff and Pickup:

Please Carpool! With the ongoing construction at Greene and close to 400 students attending the celebration, we will be EXTREMELY limited/congested with traffic flow and parking for student pickup. Thanks in advance for your patience. If possible, we would encourage students who live nearby to walk or ride their bikes to and from the event.


Arrival:

When arriving, we ask that you drop students off in the visitor/staff parking lot. You will enter off of Aldine and, when leaving, you MUST turn left on Aldine. There will be a staff member there to assist with the drop off process. Please refer to the arrows below. Please arrive no earlier than 5:00.

Pickup:

Please make sure to have your car tag hanging from your rearview mirror or the number on your dashboard. These numbers will be used to call students from the gym out to their cars. The pickup procedure will run in the same fashion as we conduct the daily school car rider pickup. You will enter off of Aldine, where your car number will be recorded. From there, we will fill rows of cars and students will be dismissed to their rows. When leaving, you MUST turn left on Aldine. Please refer to the diagram and arrows below. Please arrive no earlier than 6:55.

Schedule Updates for Next School Year

This information is for Rising 6th Graders. We are making some changes to the layout of our specials schedule for next school year.


  • Each student has a music bell. During the music bell students who take band, choir & orchestra classes will meet A-D days. Students who take 2 music classes will split time between the 2 classes during the A-D rotation. General music meets 2 days each A-D rotation and is paired with an additional day of STEAM and an additional day of PE. These classes (General Music, STEAM, and PE) are scheduled together, with no substitutions.

  • The second special bell is filled with Art, PE , Multimedia, and STEAM that each meet one day per A-D rotation.

Below you will see a sample schedule showing the new format.

Are you planning to move out of the district before next school year?

Dear Parent:

As we plan for the next school year, it is important for us to know how many pupils plan to attend Sycamore Schools.

If you know that you will be moving out of the Sycamore School District, or that your child will be attending a private or parochial school and will not be attending Sycamore Schools next Fall, please complete the form attached below and return it to the Greene School office by Tuesday, May 17th. You do not need to send in a form if your 6th grader is just moving up to the Sycamore Junior High as a 7th grader. If you plan to withdraw from Sycamore Schools, it is important that you notify the school office so that we may process records for your child’s new school. Thank you for your cooperation.

Sincerely,

Matthew A. Tudor

Principal
