There will always be students who need schools like Sycamore, to stimulate, educate, and motivate our best and brightest. We are educating kids, teaching them to think, both critically and creatively, and teaching them to love learning. Today's students will be the leaders that will solve the problems of today and tomorrow. Sycamore is a prime example of institutional evolution and a story of response to a need. Our work will never be complete.

Sycamore Serves is a new SSA committee whose purpose is to help provide opportunities for our school community to offer their time and talents to help serve and make a difference in the community outside of Sycamore School.

You are invited to answer the question, "How have you served?"
