ANNOUNCEMENT OF SPRING OPTIONAL TESTING FOR IDENTIFICATION OF GIFTED STUDENTS
Although your child may or may not have taken the CogAT in December, you may request that your child be tested on the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test (OLSAT). If you wish to have your child participate in this round of testing, all requests must be made through the below online link by March 21, 2018. In order to decrease disruption to your child's instruction, this testing opportunity will take place prior to the start of the school day. We have scheduled this 45-50 minute testing session to be administered from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018, at Maple Dale.
Please note it is the parents' responsibility to provide transportation the morning of testing to your child’s building. Additionally, know that Sycamore cannot use kindergarten or first grade scores for gifted placement.

Green Team Request of the Week
Bring in those textiles! Now through spring break the schools throughout the Sycamore District are having a friendly competition to see who can collect the most textiles. Clean out the closets and bring in those old clothes, shoes, blankets, etc. and place them in the bins in the Maple Dale parking lot. Keep these materials out of the landfill and help our school earn some money! See the “Shed the Excess Threads” flyer for more details.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help with our Students of the Week program. Each Monday we interview one student from each classroom who has made positive contributions in an effort to be Maple Dale PeaceBuilder by putting the programs principles in to action. The volunteers meet in the Maple Dale cafeteria from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m each Monday morning. Please sign up using the link below if you are interested in this volunteer opportunity to celebrate Maple Dale's PeaceBuilders.
If you have any questions about the program please feel free to contact:
