Welcome Teachers!

Welcome to the SYA Teacher Resources portal! On this page, you will be able to read, download, and print all of the documents pertaining to the SYA Middle School Writing Program. Starting Fall 2019, we will be launching two new initiatives: piloting The Pearl curriculum in our Middle School Program and a High School Writing Contest.
