Hello YGS Families,
This week students worked hard on the MAP spring test. We also practiced our RHF and fire drill this week. Our yearly safety drills are also now complete. During our Outdoor Seeker Club we planted flowers in our outdoor classroom that is now finished! Friday FUN included water recess to celebrate our grit.
