The Fisher House

The Vail School District, Sycamore Elementary, and our NEHS Members support The Fisher House, a non-profit organization that provides on-site housing to the families of veterans while they receive care in our VA hospitals.  The Tucson VA Hospital (SAVAHCS) will be home to the Arizona Fisher House, providing a “home away from home” to military and veteran families, and we can help the Fisher House reach their 3 million dollar goal by donating as little as $1.00 per family.  Please help us honor our Veterans by considering a donation to their foundation.

How can you help?  Sycamore students can turn in donations to their classroom teacher or drop them off in the front office.  When a donation is received, a red, white or blue flag will be hung in the office to honor a service member of your choosing.

Federal Impact Aid Survey

Dear Sycamore Parents/Guardians,

We want to inform you that your child will be receiving the Federal Impact Aid Survey on October 15th. Federal Impact Aid supports local school districts with concentrations of children who have parents/guardians in the uniformed services or parents/guardians employed on eligible Federal Properties. For more detailed information on Eligible Federal Properties, visit the Vail District website at (under Upcoming Events).

We are asking that ALL Sycamore parents, even those who are not employed by the federal government, to return their completed forms by October 21st, 2014. Sycamore School will receive credit for every form turned in, including those from non-federal employees. Any funds raised from Federal Impact Aid will go directly to Sycamore Elementary School. This is an excellent opportunity for Sycamore to receive supplementary money for educational purposes!  We are looking for 100% return of these forms.

Thank you for your continued support.  If you have additional questions, you may contact Michelle Quiroz, Director of Finance, at (520) 879-2021, or Esther Lubben, Computer Systems Analyst, at (520) 879-3936.

Thank you,

Sycamore Elementary School
