It's never too early to prepare our children for life after Sycamore.

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.

Student Led Conferences

This Thursday was our first night of student led conferences. Our students were prepared to discuss their progress from the 1st quarter. We are proud of the academic gains we continue to see in our students. Our conference night is an experience where students can show off their talents that are difficult to measure on a test, but will help prepare them for life after high school. We are proud of the way our students can articulate their goals and the steps they will take to achieve them!

The first day of the Fair is Thursday, October 27 and the final day is Friday, November 4. It will be open each weekday from 7:45 am -3:00 pm, and will also be open during ALL conferences times.

Your child’s class will visit the Book Fair during their regularly scheduled Home Base time. Students are also encouraged to visit the book fair during the week by getting a pass from their teacher.


Conference time is an excellent time to come with your child to shop at our Book Fair. We will remain open during the evening conferences on Thursday, October 27 and Thursday, November 3 until 8 PM. We will also be open on Conference Day, Friday, October 28. So . . . be sure to stop by the Media Center. We’ll be looking for you!

Additionally, we will be collecting loose change (or dollar bills) to help buy new books for the Operation Give Back library in Blue Ash. You can go to www.ogiveback.com to learn more about that organization. There will be a jar at the Fair in which to donate your loose change (or dollar bills).
