Flying Pig Race Info (Team Maple Dale)
Earlier this week during lunch, the flying pig mascot visited with the kids at Maple Dale. The kids have the opportunity to participate with the Flying Pig event by signing up for a Maple Dale team! All kids signed up with Maple Dale will receive a team t-shirt for the event if registered by the deadline of March 19th, 2019. Parents are responsible for their own transportation to/from event. I know Kindergartners do not participate in Milers, but if they would like to run they are more than welcome - provided parents register and provide transportation to/from the event.
The two events we expect enthusiastic participation in and allow you to enroll on the Maple Dale team are:
- Kid's Marathon 26th Mile (for kids who are close to doing a full marathon due to participating in Milers for the fall and/or spring sessions): Please email Jessica Allison at email@example.com to ask if your child is close to the 26 mile mark. Even if your child is not close to the 26th mile, it's fine if they are comfortable running a mile and they will receive a medal at the end of completing the one mile run. (Date: 5/4 @ 12 pm)
- Flying Pig 5K (Date: 5/4 @ 10 am)
The link to sign-up for this event is below:
Please register for an account with raceroster.com, and after creating the account, sign in and click on the "Register" link on the left hand side of the page. In the section where it asks about Relay Teams | Youth Program Groups, please select the option "Yes, I am participating on one of the above Teams/Groups". Two drop-down menus will appear after making that selection. Please select "Youth Programs" and then select "Maple Dale Elementary" from the two drop down menus that appear.
Thank you! Please direct all questions to Jessica Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to see you at the event!

Volunteers Needed - COPE
Sycamore Community Schools is seeking Adult Volunteers
April 22nd - Professional Development Day
The certified staff of Sycamore Community Schools will be participating in a professional learning activity called “Cost of Poverty Experience (COPE)” led by facilitators from Think Tank Inc. on April 22nd. The purpose of the activity is to engage our staff in authentic, empathy-building experiences to better understand the daily struggles some of our families may experience as a result of economic fatigue.
Each session will include 120 staff participants. We are in need of 20 volunteers (COPE Resource Leaders) for each session to “role play” various community and business members. As a COPE Resource Leader, you will be given your role by the COPE facilitator during training. Training will be provided in the first hour of the volunteer shift. The time commitment will be approximately 3-1/2 hours. Unfortunately, we will not be able to provide babysitting services on this day, therefore volunteers are asked not to bring their children along.
Volunteer Times and Locations
Morning Session: 7:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., Junior High Gym and High School Gym
Afternoon Session: 11:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., Greene Gym and Maple Dale Gym
