Student of the Month Ice Cream Party!
We celebrated our Students of the Month this week with an ice cream party! Our students are amazing and we were able to give thanks for their hard work. Thanks for making Greene great!
Our counselors have organized a mentor program. Today mentors got the chance to get to know their mentees on a deeper level at lunch. Relationships matter at Greene and this is a great way to build those bonds. Thanks to the parents who also helped make this happen!
The canned food drive ended today! Greene School students collected more than 6,000 canned goods and personal care items for those less fortunate. Thank you for making a difference in our community!

Give Back to OGB!
Sycamore Community Schools believes in giving back to our community. That is why we are a proud supporter of Operation Give Back, a Blue Ash-based charitable organization that helps families and students right here in the Sycamore district.
This year we are stepping up our efforts to collect donations for Operation Give Back’s Holiday Store. The Holiday Store helps more than 100 local families have a special holiday season.
Each of our seven schools along with our District Office is collecting items for the Holiday Store from now until December 9. While you are doing your Thanksgiving grocery trip or holiday shopping, please consider picking up non-perishable food items, toiletries, paper products, warm clothing, and new toys to donate to this great cause. Click here for a detailed list of items needed. You can drop your donations off in the collection bins at your child’s school or at Operation Give Back at 10891 Millington Court, Blue Ash, Ohio 45242, Tuesdays-Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Monetary donations and gift cards are also greatly appreciated. Click here for more information on how to donate. Operation Give Back is also seeking volunteers for the Holiday Store on December 9-10. Please contact Operation Give Back at (513) 489-2023 or email@example.com to sign up to help.
We are so excited to spread some cheer to the children in our schools this holiday season, and we welcome you to be a part of this giving. #SycamoreStrong

Optional CogAT Testing
An optional administration of the CogAT for gifted service will be offered on Tuesday, December 6th at Greene.
Who should take this test?
- Current 5th grade students who are NOT in Accelerated Math or Advanced Language, but have 2 scores of 95th percentile or higher on their Math or Reading MAP within the last 12 months. These 5th grade students should register for the test and will need to score a 128 on the CogAT for placement into 6th grade Accelerated Math and/or Advanced Language.
- Current 5th or 6th grade Accelerated Math students who are interested in taking Double Accelerated Math and have 2 scores of 98th percentile or higher on their Math MAP within the last 12 months. These students should register for the test and will need to score a 144 on the CogAT for placement into 6th or 7th grade Double Accelerated Math.
Unless testing for Double Accelerated Math, current accelerated students do NOT need a CogAT score to re-qualify for Advanced Language or Accelerated Math. Nor is the CogAT needed for any junior high placements (with the exception of Double Accelerated Math).
If your child meets the criteria and you would like to have him/her tested, please click on the link below to register for CogAT Testing by November 30th.
