Bike to School
Our Earth Day festivities were a success! About 100 students biked to school and many others walked from the junior high. Thank you to our transpiration department and our partners from the Blue Ash and Montgomery Police Department.
The Blue Ash Police Department also brought officers to Greene to teach our student bike safety during lunchtime.

Rising 7th Graders (current 6th graders, class of 2025)
Hello Greene Parents,
If you were unable to attend the rising 7th grade Academic Fair, here is the presentation.
Sycamore Community Schools is seeking Adult Volunteers
for 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
