Building a Brilliant Future

As we enter into the final few days of school, I wanted to say congratulations to everyone for an incredible year and achieving another milestone in our students’ education. I am also inspired at the support the school received all year through parent and community participation in classroom activities, YPA programs, the Spring Gala, Town Halls, and our Annual Fundraising Campaign. Thank you for your time, contributions, and investment. Read More
Message from the President of the YPA
This has been an absolutely wonderful school year! A big thank you to the YPA Committee and all of you for supporting our programs, for coming to the events, and for volunteering your time. The YPA could not have done it without you. Thank you also to the Yavneh Day School staff, who provided me with valuable feedback during my first year in the role as YPA President. I would like to share information on some of our accomplishments during this calendar year. As a reminder, the YPA is providing end of the year gifts to all of the staff.
