SPIRIT Day is just around the corner! It’s the annual day of volunteering organized by SYS where around 200 students go to local elementary and middle schools to volunteer for the day. If you couldn’t tell already by all of the advertising we’ve been doing, it’s happening on Thursday, April 19th. I’d list all of the schools but I’m working with a word limit here, people. So I’ll tell you about what we do. We eat lunch with kids, play outside at recess with them, help them with their classwork, act as teacher’s assistants, etc. You do NOT have to be a current SYS member in order to participate – it’s open to everyone. Get your permission slip and planned absence from your neighborhood office and turn it in by April 10th. It’s first come, first serve, so you probably shouldn’t procrastinate, just saying.
