Congratulations to Roxy Wilfert for designing the winning stamp for our WEE Deliver this year. Runners-Up were Niha Ragil and Xavier Torres Marrero! Stamps cost ONE penny each! If you need to purchase stamps, please come to the office or send money in an envelope to the office. Your children can purchase stamps in their classrooms as well.

Nature Trail Volunteer Day is TOMORROW!

Our Nature Trail is a great resourse of learning for our students at Symmes! We have outdoor classrooms that our teachers use when weather permits! We take care of the trail several times each school year by cleaning specific areas of the trail. Our Nature Trial Volunteer Day is quickly approaching. If you would like a fun day with your family working on our Nature Trail, please email Mr. Reinke at reinkes@sycamoreschools.org to let him know how many can come to help!


This event will take place on Saturday, April 27 from 10:00-2:00.

Our new benches made from caps!!

CONGRATULATIONS, Symmes Families! You collected over 700 pounds of plastic caps and lids for the Earth Week Caps to Benches project!! That's amazing! The benches were picked up from the Evansville, Indiana manufacturing facility and are finally at the school. The 4ft grey bench is right in front of the main doors and the 8ft green bench will be installed by the Symmes Steppers track. A special thanks to Mr. Bishop and Mr. Greer for helping store and weigh the caps! Make sure to check them out next time you are at the school! We would like to thank the Schlosser Family for delivering the caps and picking up the benches!
