Say Yes Buffalo - the non-profit group dedicated to increasing high school and postsecondary graduation rates among students attending public and charter schools located in the city of Buffalo - is hosting a series of community meetings in the coming months to raise awareness about its various services, including the Say Yes Tuition Scholarship, whose application deadline for the Class of 2013 is April 1. 

We are writing to encourage you to attend an upcoming meeting and, if possible, help spread the word by posting the attached flyer at locations in your neighborhood.


We are encouraging all community stakeholders to attend, especially parents and guardians of students currently enrolled at a public or charter school in the city of Buffalo.
