(Back to) Back to School

The Chicago Teacher’s Union has voted to return to work and as of Tuesday, Sayre is back to school. The Sayre Language Academy Website is also back up and running, that’s the school’s official site, which features the staff and teacher contact list.)

If you requested more information about the FFO at the Ice Cream Social, look for an email soon, we’re working on a few new ways to stay in touch and stay involved, all centered around this site and our Sayre FFO Yahoogroup.

We’ll also announce the rescheduled date and time of our first meeting as soon as possible.
