Hello YGS Families,
Thank you for attending our Spring Music Program this past week. A big bravo to Mr. Sauer and our students!

This week was extra special celebrating our teachers and support staff. Thank you for writing a note in our Google form. We made special gratitude boxes for staff with notes inside. Our team also enjoyed breakfast, lunch, snacks, and a quote t-shirt. A big shoutout to Mrs. Somersett, Mrs. Pelz, and our PTO for spearheading such a lovely week. Thank you families for thinking of us.

Next Week:
Next week we begin our MAP testing. You can take practice tests with your child HERE. The username and password is: GROW. Thank you for ensuring your child is extra well rested next week.

We have WARM weather next week! :) Students should dress for the weather. They are outside at least twice a day. We will celebrate our hard work on the MAP test with Water Recess on Friday, May 13th. Please send in extra clothes/swimsuit/shirt/towel.
