It was an exciting week for YGS. On Monday night, four YGS students presented to the Board of Education about the amazing things happening at YGS. Students highlighted our upcoming literacy night, CHAMP of the Day and how students embrace differences and help others throughout the school day. On Thursday evening, it was amazing to see so many students and families at the homecoming parade! It was even more exciting when YGS learned they won the "Name the Fox" contest! The Yorkville mascot's name is now, "Super Fox!" Click HERE to view the video of YGS students presenting Super Fox with a Superman t-shirt. I'd like to extend a BIG thank you to all the YGS families who supported these two events this past week.

There is no school this Friday, October 6th due to Fall break. Students will enjoy a five day weekend as break extends through Tuesday, October 10th. School will resume on Wednesday, October 11th.

Please mark your calendar for Thursday, October 12th as we'd love for all YGS families to attend this year's Literacy Night! The PTO is providing FREE pizza for all families and the YGS staff has various interactive family literacy activities for the family to participate in. We hope to see everyone between 5:30-7:00pm.

Have a great week!
