At Family Reading Night this year, Ms. Bady worked with FFO Vice-President, Sarah Loffman, to create a wish list of books that would really benefit Sayre students. A number of generous families came forward and gave a donation for a particular book. The books will be purchased and a name plate inserted honoring the student and their family.
Are you interested in leaving a legacy by contributing to our library? The books listed below still remain on the wish list at the time this article was posted. Please contact Sarah directly if you are interested in sponsoring a book. She can share which books are still available and how to sponsor.

Sayre families love stories!
determined that the biggest need at Sayre School was a new math curriculum for the upper grades.
The PPLC is a committee of teachers at a school that discusses curriculum and instructional challenges and needs and then reports these to the LSC and the school community.
“Currently the upper grade math teachers are pulling together different materials and resources to ensure their instruction is aligned with the Common Core Standards. However, an updated classroom curriculum would allow teachers to focus solely on the content as opposed to splitting planning time with trying to locate appropriate instructional resources,” shared Ms. Pelc, Kindergarten teacher and member of the PPLC.
It would also “…better prepare our students for the challenging high school text books,” says Ms. Jordan-8th grade teacher.
The ongoing Spare Change campaign, will be one of many efforts made by the school community to fund raise for the new curriculum. The estimated cost is approximately $10,000. If you have a fundraising idea, a donor contact, or deep pockets, please email the FFO about contributing to this fundraising effort. firstname.lastname@example.org
Otherwise, please share your loose change!
Kids and adults can practice their voting skills at our Mock Election.
