It was a great week at YGS last week! Our 3rd grade Battle of the Books took place and it was a BLAST!!! We are proud to announce that our 3rd graders competed with strong teamwork, knowledge, and excitement! The Donuts were our winning team, and we are sending them on to battle the 3rd grade Battle of the Books teams from Bristol Grade School and Autumn Creek Elementary School next month! Let's all wish them well! Way to go, Donuts!!!
As a reminder, Spring Break begins tomorrow! Students are off of school through Monday, April 2nd. School will resume on Tuesday, April 3rd. The main office will also be closed over Spring Break. I hope you take time to enjoy the week with your child!

Have a wonderful break!

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.
