Dear YGS Families,
I hope your child enjoyed their fun-filled snow day!

We enjoyed a fantastic Zoom author visit all the way from London! Thank you to our librarian Mrs. Mchugh for setting this up!

Students are doing a great job at working towards their weekly goals! They earn one raffle ticket for each goal and a bonus ticket for going above and beyond! This resets every Monday for a chance to win a prize of his/her choice. We appreciate you helping with these pieces at home!

This includes:
  • Meeting Lexia goal minutes.
  • 5 Dreambox Math Lessons
  • 3 Pages in Drops in the Bucket

Enjoy your weekend!

Mrs. Lech, Principal

5Essentials Parent Survey:
As a parent, you now have an opportunity to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness in a survey about your child’s school called the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. The 10 minute survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains.

The Parent Survey Supplement is now open and will close on March 11, 2022. We need at least 20% of our D115 parents to participate so please complete the survey today!

To take the survey please visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ and select the appropriate survey to begin. Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Brent Edwards at jbedwards@y115.org. Thank you so much for your participation and helping to provide key insights for improvement at your child’s school. Please find more information at Yorkville 5Essentials Parent Survey.
