Special Thanks 

Special Thanks to all the individuals and families who took time on a Saturday this month to participate in the PTA Campus Beautification Service Project to keep our school campus clean and beautiful.  We are so grateful for your time and service!


Literacy Night and Book Fair

Mark your calendars now!  We are planning a special Literacy Night Family Engagement Event to coincide with the Book Fair at Sycamore Creek.  Our goal is that families will actively partner with us to focus on student growth in literacy. You will receive specific data from your child’s teacher on how your child is performing in literacy, and you will walk away with specific strategies to use at home to help your child improve in target areas.   



Monday, February 13 - Tracks 2 and 4

Wednesday, February 15, Track 1 and 3



  • Family Book Fair will be open from 5:00-8:00 PM.

  • Literacy Night in the classroom will be 5:30-6:15 PM and 6:30-7:15 PM (to allow parents with multiple children to attend two grade levels)

  • Science of Reading Presentations will be provided throughout the night in the gym led by our Literacy Coach and Instructional Facilitator.  This will be a perfect time to find out how we teach reading now and what the foundations of LETRS training that all teachers across our district have been learning.
