CogAT Testing

CogAT Testing:

All 6th grade students (face-to-face) will be given the CogAT test on Thursday, November 12th at 8:20 a.m.


Parents of 5th graders (face-to-face): If you are interested in having your child take the CogAT for possible gifted placement into 6th grade advanced language arts, accelerated math, or double accelerated math, we are administering the test on November 12th. 5th graders will only be tested if they are registered. Students already in accelerated math, double accelerated math, or advanced language arts do not need to take the CogAT to remain in the class.


Read more about the 5th grade CogAT and how to register here.

Lost and Found

We have seen a significant reduction in the number of items in the lost and found compared to previous years. Please be sure to put your child's name on coats, jackets, lunchboxes, and other items so we can return them promptly.

Copied on Correspondence Requests

If you need or want to be copied on correspondence (for anything the school sends out), please send an email to arfstromc@sycamoreschools.org.

PTO Volunteers Needed

Are you interested in getting involved at the Greene School? It’s true that we can’t physically be in the building as volunteers for now this year, but there is still much we can do to impact our children’s educational experience.


We are particularly in need of co-chairs for some of our programs. Don’t let the word chair deter you. Think of it more as a coordinator role for the program. Most of the programs that we have traditionally done will not be able to be done the same way with the current restrictions, but there are certainly ways to think creatively to be able create a program or activity what will work. Each week we will highlight a different program that we are looking for Co-Chairs for. Get together with a friend or just volunteer yourself and a great way to get to know others.

Wellness Committee - Traditionally this committee plans activities for the staff and students during Wellness Week in February. This year they will likely need to come up with activities that can be done in a virtual or socially distanced manner.


PTO Committee Chair Info


If you are interested in getting more information about any of these roles, please reach out to Co-VP Programs, Betsy Rinehart and Kathy Mercurio, at grptovpprog@sycamoreschools.org.


Below you will find the google form to fill out for any Chair roles, committees or general volunteer positions for this school year. We know that some of these activities are unlikely, but in the event that something changes we would like to have people in as many positions as possible.
