Time for the Talent Show!
This Sunday, we'll open this year's Sycamore Talent Show! You can view the Talent Show on your child's class Canvas page at your leisure. You'll be impressed by over 30 unique acts highlighting student creativity and skill in skits, dance, magic, poetry, vocal and instrumental music, equestrian riding, digital drawing, video production, and more! We are very proud of our courageous and talented performers. Thank you all for participating.
Students will view the acts of classmates over the coming week.
