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.
On November 17, 175 mathletes from across Indiana, ranging from 5th to 8th grade, descended upon Sycamore School to participate in the 9th annual Sycamore Math Invitational. In the 8th grade and under division, West Lafayette 8th grader Patrick Li was the overall champion with an outstanding score of 39. In second place was Sycamore 8th grade Grace Yang with a score of 36. In 3rd place was Brady Exoo from Terre Haute.
On Saturday, the 8th Grade VEX IQ team earned the top prize - the Excellence Award - at the Klondike MS Tournament. In a day where Sycamore had seven teams in a strong 36-team field, the 8th grade VEX team edged out Sycamore's 7th grade team and two Zionsville Middle School squads to claim the top prize.
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. A visible, tangible, and easy-to-access way to get involved with Sycamore Serves is through the new whiteboard which has been installed in the Middle School hallway just outside the Bhatia Technology Lab. You are invited to answer the question, "How have you served?"
