As always, we need volunteers to make our book fair successful. If you would be interested in volunteering, please click here.


Our yearbook provider will end all online yearbook sales on Friday, April 19. After this date, yearbooks will need to be ordered in the main office and quantities will be limited. The cost to order yearbooks online is $27; the cost after April 19 will be $30 and must be purchased with cash or check made out to Sycamore Middle School. If you still need to order a yearbook click here and enter the code 16551.


The Spartan Food Pantry located at West Elementary School is open this Wednesday, April 3, from 4:30PM-6:30PM. The Pantry is open to any family that has a student attending a Sycamore School. Just bring a photo ID.

The pantry is a choice-pantry that offers frozen foods (burgers, chicken tenders, other meats), fresh produce, dairy products, canned goods, snacks, treats, and much more. Families can come to the pantry every time it is open and choose what items they would or would not like to take. The next one is April 17.


Plunge Into Fitness logs are due this Friday, April 5. If you complete the log completely and turn it in within the timeline, you will win a pass to Raging Waves Water Park.
