Welcome to the New SSYRA Online Home
We are proud to join the main FAME website and look forward to using the capabilities of the new site to make this an interactive and aesthetically-pleasing home to the SSYRA program which is sponsored by FAME and the Florida Department of Education.
To that end you will be seeing a host of new files available for download (including sticker labels for books, voting materials, brochures, bookmarks and much more), but you must be a FAME member to access them. The sad truth is that FAME needs your help today to maintain the services we have all taken for granted. We will endeavor to continue to improve our offerings to ensure you feel your tax-deductible membership is worth it. On behalf of the SSYRA committee, we look forward to seeing everyone at this year's FAME conference.
