It is going to be a busy week at YGS! Tomorrow is Superhero Day!!! Students are invited to wear a "cape" to school in celebration of the author Kelly DiPucchio and her visit to YGS tomorrow morning!!! The students and staff are excited to listen to Ms. DiPucchio speak, as she is an inspiration to our young authors. If you are a parent of a PM early childhood or PM Kindergarten student, you are welcome to bring your child to the assembly at 9:00am tomorrow. Your child may sit with his or her teacher, but we ask you attend the assembly, as well, and take your child home upon the completion of the presentation.

On Tuesday, we have our monthly PTO meeting. The meeting will take place at 6:30pm in the library! We hope to see you there.

Thursday evening is the Art Show, Book Fair and Ice Cream Social! We invite you to join us between 5-6:30pm at YGS for an evening of fun! All students will have artwork on display for viewing. There will be ice cream to enjoy, thanks to our amazing PTO, and plenty of books for purchase in the library at the Scholastic Book Fair. I hope to see all YGS families at this event on Thursday evening! If you can't make the Book Fair, feel free to shop online by clicking HERE .

Author Aaron Blabey visits on Friday! He is the famous author of The Bad Guys and Pig the Pug! I know the students are super excited to have not just one author visit this week, but two!!! The assembly is at 1:15pm on Friday, so if you are an AM early childhood parent or an AM Kindergarten parent, feel free to bring your child to the assembly so they can enjoy this experience.

The Daddy Daughter Dance is Saturday! Tickets are still available to purchase at the door! The PTO is still in need of volunteers to support the event, especially related to clean up! Please click HERE if you are willing to volunteer to support this amazing event which funds multiple teacher grants and opportunities for our students throughout the school year.

Have a wonderful week!

The Daddy Daughter Dance is Saturday! This is the YGS PTO's largest fundraiser. Without this event, we would not be able to provide funding for author visits, reading enrichment plays, recess equipment, technology purchases for classroom use and teacher grants. Those are just a few of the ways the Daddy Daughter Dance supports the students and staff at YGS. Please consider donating your time to support this event!!! Click HERE if you are interested in signing up to help. There are still available spots!!!
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.

What's for lunch?
