This week is Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Week! During the week of Dr. Seuss' birthday, we would love for you to join in our school's celebration and dress up for the fun. Each day of the week will have a Dr. Seuss theme! Be sure to see the flyer below outlining our spirit week. Tomorrow is One Sock, Two Sock, Red Sock, Blue Sock day. Students are encouraged to wear fun socks to school, or as Dr. Seuss would say, "They could have pretty lace or be from a cool place!"

Tomorrow we have our Jump Rope for Heart kickoff assembly! I know the kids are excited to learn how jumping rope can help the American Heart Association. Be sure to see the flyer below which explains more about the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser all students at YGS are invited to participate in.

We are looking forward to another wonderful week at YGS!

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.
