Family Science Night will take place Tuesday, September 18th from 6-8pm. This is a wonderful event for your kids to have fun and learn! There will be science experiments, demonstrations, and many opportunities to get your kids excited about science! We hope to see you there!
Our big project for the 2018-2019 school year will be the STEAM garden. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. All of these components will be included in the installation of gardens, and some fun and visually stimulating improvements within our campus. It is our hope that these gardens will provide real world connections to nature while fostering learning! There will be several opportunities in the near future for you to help make this dream a reality. We will be reaching out to our AMAZING volunteer network soon. If you have special interest in gardening or landscaping and want to get more involved we would love to hear from you!
We are adding some new merchandise options in varied materials and styles available for purchase. We are streamlining that system so you will now be able to order online. Look for information coming home and on our Facebook page on how you’ll be able to order some new Sycamore Swag!
An excellent opportunity to support our school is through Box Tops for Education. Clipping Box Tops is a simple way to help our school buy what it needs. Classes are rewarded for bringing Box Tops in and a trophy is awarded monthly to the classroom with the most Box Tops. Thank you to Karolynn Brinkman for heading up this program! Shopping with AmazonSmile is another simple way to support Sycamore. Every item available for purchase on Amazon is also available on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com) at the same price. Once on the site you can select Sycamore Elementary as your charity of choice!
Our next PTA meeting will be held on Wednesday September 5th at 3pm in the Community Room located at the front of the school.
As always, thank you to our parents and educators for supporting Sycamore PTA!
