12 SIGNS: Can I Tell If My Child Is Gifted?
Parents are among the best identifiers of gifted children. You clearly know your child better than anyone, and your input should be welcomed and valued by any school you are considering for your child.
Typically, parents of gifted kids will notice characteristics of giftedness in their child at an early age. At Sycamore, we call these the “Twelve Signs” of a gifted child.
Philanthropic support from our Board, staff, families, alumni, and friends enhances every student's experience beyond what would be possible with tuition dollars alone. In fact, the Sycamore Fund provides the second largest contribution to the School’s operating budget, after tuition. It helps ensure the financial resources that have been essential to our ability to be flexible and offer the very best educational experience for our students.
Financial support will help provide:
Annual professional development for faculty and staff.
Financial Aid for 20% of our students.
New school-wide health and safety protocols.
Technology to support faculty and students.
Every gift every year has an immediate impact on academic programs, faculty development, the arts, athletics, and clubs. Every gift matters.
Sycamore Spanish teacher Brandon Fitzsimmons was recognized as both the AATSP (American Assoc. for Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese) and IFLTA (Indiana Foreign Language Teachers Association) 2022 Rising Star. The award is given to a foreign language teacher with less than 8 years of teaching experience "for outstanding achievement in the teaching of World Languages in the State of Indiana" and "honored for dedication to teaching, leadership in the profession, and service to the community."
Sycamore School hosted a Veterans Day Service on Friday, November 11, with a schoolwide performance of "Taps" at 11:11 am. Sycamore students and staff honored military veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
There will always be a need for schools like Sycamore to stimulate, educate, and motivate our best and brightest. We are educating kids, teaching them to love learning and to think, both critically and creatively.
Today's students will be the leaders that will solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Sycamore prepares these future leaders to do just that.
