2014-15 Gymwear Information

Students must wear plain gold t-shirts and green or navy blue shorts or sweats all day on their “gym day” (for most students, that’s once a week).* Buying official Sayre gymwear from the Sayre FFO supports the school and FFO programs. We’re offering an all-new design this year, order at the Ice Cream Social or by submitting this form to the office before September 19. All sales are cash-only and non-returnable, so please check sizes at the Ice Cream Social before ordering, or email Naima or Lisa from the FFO to arrange to see samples. Youth and adult sizes are available! Students, parents, families, friends: show your Sayre pride!

UPDATE: the newer version of the form (linked above) has added Youth XL t-shirts, sweatshirts and sweatpants, if you have the old form, feel free to write that size in.

* See official gymwear rules in your Parent Handbook

2014-15 Sayre School Supply list

Sayre Language Academy has released a school supply list for the 2014-15 school year. Download it here and get shopping! (It won’t help that Galewood’s OfficeMax, Office Depot, and Staples all closed earlier this year…) If you need assistance with supplies (or can donate some supplies) check out CPS’ Back to School Supply Drive.

For general info, visit CPS’ official Back to School information page. We’ll have more news soon about the Back to School Social, usually held a few days before school starts, where families can meet their teachers, pick up their paperwork, and order gymwear.

In the meantime, remember Sayre’s uniform is navy pants/skirt/jumper with a white or light blue polo shirt, button-down, or blouse. Gym uniforms are green (or navy) sweatpants or shorts with a gold t-shirt and optional green (or navy) sweatshirt.
