Publishing House Authors and Editors

Sycamore has a long-standing tradition of helping students publish stories for our school’s library through Publishing House. This week, confirmation letters will go to families to communicate their student's committment to take a story through the process of publishing. The writing of stories is a fully independent process, though we count on community volunteers to support our young authors in the final editing. Interested in helping with Publishing House? Contact Mrs. Stanger or Joanna Lord at

Parent Information Night: Sixth Grade Outdoor Science School

Each year, sixth grade students attend Outdoor Science School (OSS), a five-day, overnight experience to enhance students' knowledge of geology, ecology, plant and animal life, and the environment. This Thursday evening, sixth grade parents will be given information about the OSS curriculum and activities, as well as costs, staffing, housing, food, and registration forms for the trip. School-wide fundraisers and parent donations allow every student to attend. If you would like to contribute to OSS, please do so in the school office. All sixth grade parents are strongly encouraged to attend Thursday's important meeting. Outdoor Science School will be held March 2-6.

A Look Back at Service Day

Planning to Attend Kindergarten in 2020?

In order to inform soon-to-be kindergarten parents, each CUSD elementary school offers a Kindergarten Open House prior to kindergarten registration. Ours will be held on January 23 from 9:00-10:15 AM. All Open House dates are posted on the CUSD website along with detail about Transitional Kindergarten. Children born on or before September 1, 2015 are eligible to attend Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year.

Parent Night: Understanding Conflict at School

On the evening of Wednesday, January 22, we'll offer a parent information night focused on understanding peer conflicts at school. Led by our school psychologist, Dr. Sheri Frost, Mrs. Stanger and staff, we will focus on our school's language for conflict, patterns at various stages of development, types of bullying and the home-school partnerships that foster student learning and promote a safe and positive school culture.
