The FFO plans to distribute the 2013-2014 Sayre Student Directory before Thanksgiving break. The directory includes only families that choose to participate, and only shares as much information as families wish to provide. If you wish to be included in this helpful and free resource, but haven’t turned in the form, now’s your last chance, print the form (download here), and turn it in at the office or sign up at the FFO table during report card pickup on Tuesday, November 12.

Bowling Night Thanks!

sayre ffo family halloween bowling night

Our first FFO Halloween Family Bowling Night was a big success with an amazing turnout! Hundreds of students, parents, faculty and staff!) came to Mont Clare Lanes the night before Halloween to roll some strikes, socialize with friends, and show off some great costumes. The night raised $560 for future FFO-sponsored family events! Big thanks to Joey McDermott for initiating the event, to Montclare Lanes for hosting the event, and to Jan Mahaffey, Michelle Pitts-Onochie, and Tracie Bedell for the yummy baked goods. Thanks to all the everyone who worked the desk and helped out, and most of all, thanks to the students, family, and staff that came out on a rainy night to support Sayre Language Academy and the FFO!
