What a great week at YGS! PARCC testing began and our 3rd graders tried their best each day! PARCC testing will continue this week and throughout April. Jump Rope for Heart took place on Friday! I saw many red faced students after leaving PE! What a great sign of the students working their hearts while jump roping. A HUGE shout out to Mrs. Simpson for her dedication to this fundraiser!!!

As a reminder, report cards went live at 5pm on Home Access on Friday. When viewing your child's report card online, try clicking on the "print" button in the top right corner. By clicking on the print button you are able to view the report card in a more user friendly manner. Feel free to contact the main office if you need assistance logging into Home Access.

Yearbook order forms are due on FRIDAY!!! Please be sure to turn your order form in so your child receives a yearbook as a momento from the school year.

On Friday, there is a one hour early release for 5 Hour STARS, PM Early Childhood, PM Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. Dismissal times are as follows:

5 Hour STARS: 12:35pm
PM Early Childhood: 2:05pm
PM KDG, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades: 2:25pm

AM Early Childhood and AM Kindergarten do not have an early release and will dismiss at their usual times.

If you're thinking of spring cleaning sometime soon, don't get rid of those used books!!! This April we will collect books for ALL ages to send to an empty library in Zambia. More information about our book drive will be coming soon!

Have a great week!

No problem! If your child needs to leave early from school, please inform the office by sending a note or calling prior to 3pm.  The office will be sure to inform your child's teacher and the teacher will ensure your child is packed and ready to be dismissed when requested. However, the office will not call your child down, nor will the teacher send your child down to the office, until you have arrived to pick them up. There could be a change in your plans, such as traffic, which may impact your arrival time. We want to make sure we maximize the amount of instruction time your child has. As soon as you arrive for pick up, we will call your child down to be dismissed. Thank you for understanding and please let the office know if you have questions.
