Dear YGS Families,

This week students finished MAP testing and enjoyed playing in the snow! This quarter we are starting writer's workshop. Students will be writing a lot more and be exposed to many ways of being a writer.

What's on the horizon?

Read Aloud Pajama Party! (on Zoom!)
Thursday, February 3rd at 6:45 p.m. See below for details. We will also have a PJ day at school on Thursday!

Valentine's Day:
We WILL be passing out Valentines this year (no candy or trinkets please). Please send them in on Thursday, February 10th or Friday. February 11th for quarantine purposes.

Black History Month
During the month of February we will be learning about famous black individuals (past and present) who have been change agents in our world. Although this is one month, we expose our students to diverse topics all year round.

Enjoy the snow!
