The Principal's Desk At Sycamore

January 6, 2019

Dr. Crystal Cooper Thompson, Principal

Happy New Year!


Welcome Back to the rest of a great school year. We are half way there and I can't be happier to be the principal of such a great community of parents and students.

Thank you for wonderfully attended class party celebrations, coupled with the many kind and generous gifts you offered my teachers, staff and I. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for thinking of us. We are greatly appreciative.

I hope that you and your family have been able to heal from the high level of flu virus illnesses that affected our school community before the break. We have instilled the appropriate procedures at our school with cleaning and upkeep. I politely ask, that if your child is exhibiting any cold/flu like symptoms, that they are not brought to school since it is such contagious type of illness. We have already felt improvement and hope to get through this season very soon.

We are excited to send home our end of first semester report cards on this Friday, January 11th. We hope that this communication will keep you posted on your child's progress. You can also view weekly progress of 1st-5th grade student progress on the parent portal. Please let your child's teacher know if you are unable to access. They will be able to direct you to how to access this important communication tool so that you are fully informed.

Please stay up to date with our calendar events at:

Every classroom will have morning meeting daily where they will greet one another, share something based on a focused topic, engage in an activity and end with a morning message. This 10 minute activity every day ties to our AKS, but also helps to start the day off positively. Ask your child about the amazing experience.
