High School Science Wing Renovations
Tiny House Project Gets Boost from Pella Windows
Sycamore High School students took a big step forward this school year towards constructing a tiny house. Students just installed eight top-of-the-line windows thanks to a donation from Pella Windows. Work on the interior of the home will begin in the 2019-2020 school year. Students plan to auction off the finished product to raise money for the Architecture program. Learn more about the project.
Just a reminder: Ohio's Sales Tax Holiday is Friday, August 2 - Sunday, August 4. School supplies priced at $20 per item or less will be exempt from sales and use tax.
Sycamore Community Schools will mail out a printed calendar for the 2019-2020 school year this month to all families. NEW THIS YEAR: We have included the dates of culturally significant events and observations that could impact a student’s ability to attend a school or participate in certain activities like doing homework or evening functions. Great care has been given to assure the accuracy of these dates. Please let us know if there are any other dates that we should consider including in future calendars.
Update Your Final Forms
Get an early start on the school year by updating your student's information on Final Forms! You can now log-in to your Final Forms account for the 2019-2020 school year.
Sycamore Community Schools has partnered with Final Forms to provide a one-stop shop for all electronic forms including emergency medical, transportation, Computer Agreement forms, etc. For new families, you will only need to fill out the forms once and then update and verify the following year. If you are not new to the district, please log-in to Final Forms to verify that the information from last year is up to date and add your electronic signature to each form.

Sycamore Community Schools has launched a new effort to connects people who need help with those who can pitch in.
The district has connected with Neighborhood Bridges to start Sycamore Bridges, which will bridge the gap between students and families in need and local advocates and donors.
Counselors, teachers, administrators, and clergy who learn about needs can post them on the Sycamore Bridges website. Requests can be for anything from financial assistance to clothing, food, and furniture needs. Those who want to help can sign up to fill the needs. It's all anonymous and helping is as simple as clicking a button.
Donors can drop off items at the Blue Ash Fire Station 13 on Kenwood Road or the Montgomery Fire Station on Montgomery Road.
Sycamore Bridges has already fulfilled three needs in its first weeks! We are so thankful for our community for helping the following:
1. A local family needed financial assistance to purchase a birth certificate to register their incoming kindergartener.
2. A local family needed help with rent payment.
3. Three high school students needed financial assistance after the loss of a parent.
Sign up now to be a donor and be ready the next time there is an opportunity for kindness. Click here to learn more information. Be sure to follow Sycamore Bridges on Facebook and Twitter.
