Volunteer opportunities

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

PBIS

May is right around the corner signaling the approach of the end of the school year! The staff at Greene has been hard at work for several months planning to transition all of our students to the next grade level and preparing for the arrival of our rising 5th graders in August. This article gives some great resources for parents of all age/grade levels to help alleviate some of the stress and anxiety that can accompany big changes! We are committed to making the transition process as smooth as possible for our students and know that they will all do great things in the future!
