We are looking for some help with the April PTO Staff Lunch (Baked Potato Bar). If you are able to donate or help please sign up here.


The Spartan Food Pantry located at West Elementary School is open this Wednesday, April 17, 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 May 1.


The last day of school will be Thursday, May 30. Students will be dismissed at 11:00AM. Other end of the year events and activities will be updated on our website calendar.


The Board of Education has approved the 2019-2020 Academic Year Calendar. The calendar is similar to past years and we will continue to use President’s Day in February as an Emergency Day. This allows for instructional time to be made up earlier, rather than adding time on at the end of the year.
