AVIATOR FLIGHT FEST
On Saturday, October 1, Sycamore Junior High School PTO will host their annual Aviator Flight Fest. The day begins with a 5K run/walk and a 10K run at 8:00am. The race begins and ends at Sycamore Junior High School. First Watch of Harper's will be providing breakfast at the finish line for all participants, and Athleta Cincinnati sponsors a swag bag for all racers including goodies from our amazing sponsors. Each registrant also receives a long sleeve race t-shirt.
At 9:30 the fun moves inside for our festival. Games, food, prizes, music, raffle tickets, and an incredible bid-n-buy auction are some of the great activities you'll find appealing for families.
Our website features all of the information you need to get involved, from sponsorship and volunteering, to ticket sales and registration. Visit www.aviatorflightfest.com for details.

“Changing Families” Counseling Group Coming Soon...
Beth Hill, our school counselor, is starting a group in October for students who have parents that are separated or divorced. This group will be called “Changing Families” and will meet weekly for 6 weeks. This could be a recent change or one from the past; all students are welcome! Children benefit from being in a group with peers who are in a similar life situation. Group members will learn from one another and develop strategies for managing their feelings around the change. Please call or email Beth with questions or to express interest for your child(ren). email@example.com
