Sycamore Junior High Family Communication
March 10, 2023
This spirit week was FUN! Thank you to student council who helped to organize the week. We saw lots of twins, throw-backs, and silly antics with Freaky Friday switches. We are also through the bulk of scheduling for next school year. Verification sheets were added to ebackpack at 3pm today for you to review with your child. If you have any questions please reach out to directly to your counselor. Tonight and tomorrow are the final shows for Footloose. Go check it out! Our students are crazy talented and the show is a great experience for all.
Next week is our final push to the end of Quarter 3. Please make sure your children are in contact with teachers if they have any questions about missing assignments, upcoming tests, or grades.
Enjoy your weekend! We are excited to see you back on Monday.

- Math AIR testing: April 19, 20
- Science AIR testing (8th only): April 25
