In an effort to increase attendance at the meeting with our area chief, Randel Josserand, on Wed. Dec. 16th, FFO officers have decided to cancel the December 9th FFO meeting.

The meeting with Mr Josserand will be held Wednesday the 16th at 6pm at Sayre Language Academy. Please come to this follow-up meeting that will cover bullying, teacher turnover, recess, after-school activities and language classes at Sayre.
