Put on your Syre Wildcat Pride and join us on Saturday, May 18th as we give the Syre grounds a big sprucing up. Bring your work gloves and yard tools and dig in!
We’ll start at 9am and work through the day. Come for a while or stay all day - whatever time you can spare. If you’re close enough to walk or have a larger vehicle and can bring a wheelbarrow and a shovel to help spread bark that would be very helpful.
Have you ever thought of fostering within the Syre community?
Come learn how you can be a temporary foster parent for a Syre child while the Department of Children, Youth and Families looks for a more permanent placement. Fostering Together and the Department of Children, Youth, and Families are hosting an informational night at Syre. Mark your calendars to learn-
How you can become a temporary licensed foster parent just in case a child at Syre Elementary needs a home.
You don’t have to be a super hero or even save the world…but maybe you can find the room to make a difference in the life of a child within our community!
Come learn more!
Thursday, May 16, 7 p.m.
