New Student Orientation is specifically designed for Greene students and parents who are new to Sycamore. The orientation will begin at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, August 10th. The orientation will be presented by our counselors, Mrs. Asher (last names A-K) and Mrs. Bachmann (last names L-Z). A flier with additional information was distributed at registration. In addition, there is an “E.H. Greene New Student Information Form” posted. Please complete this form and mail it to your child’s counselor at Greene as soon as possible.
Sycamore requires all students to fill out their annual forms through Final Forms. Click here to create an account to get started. To access information about your child’s grades you will also need to create an account through Parent Portal. You will also find this link at the top of our district homepage. You will need your student’s ID number in order to set this up.
Enjoy your summer! We look forward to meeting you in August!
