Dismissal for Car Riders

Each day during dismissal we send about 830 students out of our doors with the goal of delivering them safely home to their families. I am writing this week to remind you that we must consider the safety of students and parents for car riders when you come to pick them up.


Here are some reminders:

  • You will need ID when picking your child up in the cafe lobby
  • Parents should wait inside the cafe once they have signed their student out
  • Be courteous and aware when driving in the lot. There are people walking through circle drive.
  • When parking be sure not to block other cars in and do not block the handicap spots located near the playset

Greene Machine Auditions!

Auditions for the Greene Machine Show Choir will be on Wednesday, September 4th. This is an auditioned extracurricular group that is open to any student at the Greene School. Students who are interested in auditioning will need to get an audition packet from Mrs. Anderson (5th grade choir director) or from the office. We will have a mandatory clinic from 3:00-4:00 p.m. on September 3rd where students will learn the dance for the audition and then students will sign up for a time to audition on the 4th. The sign-up sheet will be located outside of the choir room. UPDATE: students who were in the group last year should attend the clinic and auditions. They will all be invited back to the club this school year.

Calculators - 6th Grade

We are still accepting orders for the 6th grade math calculator, the TI-15. Order forms are in the office and the cost is $15.00, payable by cash or a check made out to EH Greene.

Child Nutrition

AUGUST HARVEST OF THE MONTH! Every month in the kitchen this school year, the Child Nutrition Department will be featuring a locally grown fruit or vegetable. This produce was planted just for Sycamore Schools! This month will be fresh corn on the cob and cantaloupe. This was grown at Riehm Produce Farm in Tiffin, Ohio.
