Upcoming Events This Week: Always Check our website for updated calendar events

Sycamore Parents,

We are now in our final week of school for the 2015 year. Time flies so quickly and we are approaching the end of the 2nd 9 weeks and what a great time we have had! A round of applause to YOU for being the most supportive parents to not only your own children but to the staff at Sycamore.

Kudos to Erin Smith and the PTA for an outstanding Sycamore Bazaar! We had vendors, food and fun and it was such a memorable event. Our vendors were amazing and we got to meet so many great people while we shopped, sang and met new friends. Thank you to Erin Kilpatrick and Coach K for leading our students in a holiday performance. You all made our Saturday fun for sure!

Ms. Carlan was serving on Saturday with our Lego League Team at Creekland Middle School. Our school won an award for having the best research! Congratulations to our team and especially Ms. Carlan for all of your hard work that you have put into our students and our STEM activities. We are in our 2nd year of STEM work as we make our way toward certification. How exciting it is to know that one day soon, we will be a STEM certified school. What progress we have made!

This week we will continue to work hard in anticipation of Friday which will be our Polar Express Party Day! Please send your children to school in their pajamas with $1.00 for our school fundraiser. The party times are on our website. Please plan ahead to assure that you have time for parking and sign in procedures. If you intend on checking your child out after the parties, you are welcome to, but will need to follow the procedures that will be explained at sign in time. If you would like to bring a guest, please make sure that you and your guest have your photo ID. Limiting your guests to no more than one or two is appreciated due to parking and room capacity.

Thank you to our All Pro Dads club for coming in on Friday to spend time with their children at school in the gym. I appreciate that you value this time by spending moments at school bonding and making memories with your children. Your relationship with them is very important to their success.Thank you for continuing to inspire them to be GREAT!

Make sure you stop by the lost and found and retrieve any lost items your child may have left. We can write their name in it for you before you leave so that if they lose it again, we can get it to them. We will also end any items left over to charity.

Finally, please join me in thanking Sugar Hill Church for all of their support in helping our families with wrapped gifts of all kinds at this special time of year. They love Sycamore and we love them back for being our advocates and showing hearts full of love!

I look forward to seeing you in our halls on Friday! Have a safe and joyous week!

Have a great week and happy holidays!

Mrs.Crystal Cooper Thompson
