I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!  


Volunteer Appreciation

On behalf of the entire Sycamore Creek Staff, we wanted to say THANK YOU to all of our Parent Volunteers.  Thank you to those were able to come to one of the Volunteer Luncheons last week.  We wish you all could have all been there to celebrate with us.  We are so blessed to have such amazing parents who give so much of their time to support our students and teachers.  Our volunteers at Sycamore Creek are hands down the very best in Wake County!  I am always so proud and thankful to see parents volunteering in the classrooms, on field trips, at Super Crocs Day, student clubs, PTA events, Croc Mile, Book Fair, and so much more.  Just know that you make a HUGE DIFFERENCE and we could not do it without you!  Thank you!


Spring Carnival Thank You

Special Thanks to our PTA for an amazing Spring Carnival!  It was such a wonderful event for our Sycamore Creek families and school community!  Thank you for coming out to support us.  A huge shout out to Ms. Soloway, Ms. Hendren, Ms. DiMizio, Ms. Newton, and Mr. Menius who planned and organized the entire event which was a huge success!

SCES Carpool Tags

To ensure the safety of our students, all cars picking up Sycamore Creek students should have a SCES carpool tag.  No handmade tags please!  If you have someone pickkng up your child and you need additional SCES carpool tags please let us know.  There is no charge for additional tags.


Step Up Day/Meet the Teacher for Students for 2019-2020 School Year

Based on survey results from staff and parents, our School Improvement Team has decided to change the traditional Meet the Teacher event to a special Step Up/Meet the Teacher Day just for students during the school day (Track 1 on June 3 and Tracks 2, 3, and 4 on June 27).  The focus will be entirely for our students and they will be able to move up to the next grade classes to meet the teachers during the school day.  Our goal will be to help our students feel more comfortable knowing where they will be going, learning what the next grade level be like, and getting to know their teachers.  Teacher assignments will go home in the students' report cards on the last day of school.  Individual teacher websites will include additional resources, videos, and information about the teacher and classroom.  Based on your feedback, rising kindergarten students will meet their teacher at Kindergarten Orientation.  Students new to SCES will have an opportunity to meet the teachers prior to the beginning of the first day of school as well.


Meet the Teacher/Open House for Parents for 2019-2020 School Year

Parents will be able to meet the teachers at Open House on July 15 (Track 1), July 17 (Track 2), July 18 (Track 3), and August 8 (Track 4) - all from 5:30-6:30 PM.  Thank you for your feedback and supporting us as we prepare for a new school year.
