Dear Families, 

Sycamore has been approved to reopen open on Monday, 9/28. The kindergarten team is planning to scale back on synchronous learning (Zoom), as an overwhelming majority of students will be onsite daily.  If your student is continuing on distance learning, join us for calendar on Zoom at 9am, (this is how we will monitor attendance). Following calendar, your student will complete the work for the day on Planbook at their pace. Please share pictures of completed work through your child’s SeeSaw journal, (this is how we will grade completed work). We will reach out to schedule Zoom times for assessments at different intervals. 

Thank you, 

The Kinder Team

Hello Kindergarten families!

We have had a great start to the year so far. We wanted to say thank you for everyone’s patience as we are figuring out all of the logistics for this strange year. Although this year we do not have homework, there are a few things that we would like you to work with your child on at home.

Kindergarten Trimester 1 At-A-Glance

Hi parents! Please open the attachment to see an outline of what we will be learning in class during 1st trimester. In addition to these standards, students who are ready (determined by assessments) will be learning sight words, as well as reading at their level. Supports at home will include iXL and RAZ-Kids. We're looking forward to a successful first trimester!
