Book Fair – Virtual

It’s a new school year and though we can’t celebrate books in our traditional fashion of an in-person fair, we can still celebrate the love of reading by getting books into your hands at home. Our goal is to reach 275 books sold. If we can exceed 275, that would be truly AMAZING. Let’s bring our Spartan spirit and make it happen. While the Fair will be exclusively held online this year, we still plan on making it a fun and joyous experience for our kids. Every dollar spent will benefit our school directly – 25% back in rewards! Please visit the Virtual Book Fair Monday, November 30 – Saturday, December 13.

Sycamore Library Resources

All students in Sycamore schools are entitled to a free Sycamore Public Library card! Check out this video for SPL card information or click here for instructions on how to obtain your card. Additionally, there are amazing eResources accessible for everyone!

Meal Programs

If you participate in one of our student meal programs, we will be changing the location of meal pick up as a result of the District’s transition to fully remote instruction for students through Monday, January 18, 2020.

Student meals will be picked up from your student’s school each Wednesday from 3:30 – 5:30 PM — a week’s worth of meals will be provided each Wednesday. If you have multiple students in the District, all of your family’s meals will be picked up from your youngest student’s school. When you arrive for meal pick up, please look for the school bus parked outside the school. A member of our staff will be there to load the meals into your vehicle. If you have any questions or if you would like to be added, please contact Lacey Lantz.
