The end of 2015 is drawing near already. We have had a great start of the school year here at Sycamore Middle School, and we have many things to celebrate.
First, we’d like to celebrate our students. We have had an excellent start to our year in many different ways. Our students participated in our annual PTO run-a-thon fundraiser and raised over $20,000. This money goes a long way towards helping to pay for field trips, classroom equipment, and other items that benefit our children. In addition, our teams have completed several different activities to give back to our community. Our teams have held a clothing drive and food drive, and we will also hold a book fair at our school. What a great way for our children to understand the importance of giving back to our community.
We would also like to take the time to celebrate our families. Without your support, our students could not be as successful as they are. Thanks to all of you who spend the extra time to make sure homework is completed well, that your child gets a good night’s sleep, and that they have the supplies and tools that they need to be successful at school. We are very fortunate to have such great kids here at SMS, and that is due in no small part to the parent base that we have. Thank you.
I would also like to celebrate our staff. At any time of the day or night, even on weekends, you can drive past the middle school and see the hard-working, dedicated staff here at Sycamore Middle School. Many of them put in countless hours of planning and preparation, grading, coursework, and research to make sure they are providing the best education possible for your children. I am proud of the staff that we have here at Sycamore Middle School, and I am so grateful to work with them each and every day.
