Music News at Sycamore

Recorders for Grades 4-5

All students should have  their Recorders by now! If there is any difficulty in getting a Recorder please let Mrs. Post know! Here is the link of the suggested Recorder for those that need it:

Musical Auditions and Backstage Crew Information

Musical auditions dates and requirements are posted on the Music Website. Please fill out the audition form for those interested in a role in the musical. Audition links were sent out by classroom teachers and can be found on the music website. Backstage Crew does not need to audition but must complete the application form found on the music website as well.


Our 4th and 5th Grade Chorus members have been working hard to prepare for their Patriotic Concert on September 11th! Just a reminder that rehearsal begins at 7:15 a.m. for those students (5th Grade on Tuesday morning and 4th Grade on Thursday morning)! 


Dental Screenings

Annually, our School Health Dental Hygienist looks for healthy smiles by providing kindergarten dental screenings on 8/12/19 (Tracks 1 & 2) and 8/26/19 (Tracks 3 and 4).   Please refer to the WCPSS student/parent handbook.  Good dental health is important to a student’s overall well-being and affects a child’s success and performance in the classroom.  School Dental Hygienists use a flashlight to provide a quick visual screening of the student’s teeth.  A letter with the screening results will be sent in student’s school folder ONLY if your child has questionable or obvious dental needs.  If you have any questions, please contact the school’s dental hygienist, Marla Jasperse, RDH, at 919-621-2480 or


Cada año, nuestro Higienista Dental de las Escuelas busca sonrisas saludables haciendo exámenes dentales en las clases de kinder. Por favor, consulte el manual del estudiante / padre de WCPSS. La buena salud dental es importante para el bienestar general de un estudiante y afecta el éxito y el desempeño escolar del niño.  Los higienistas usan una linterna para hacer un rápido examen visual de los dientes del estudiante.  Se enviará una carta con los resultados del examen en la carpeta escolar del estudiante SOLAMENTE si su hijo(a) tiene necesidades dentales obvias o cuestionables.  Si tiene preguntas, por favor contacte a Angelita Rodriguez 919.250.1199 o 


Have a wonderful week!  Please let us know how we can support you!
