Happy New Year!!! I hope 2018 has been wonderful to you and your family so far. It sure was great to have two weeks off to be with family and friends, as well as to relax and recharge. I am excited to have the building filled with students and staff tomorrow morning. We have a wonderful second semester planned and I am anxious to kick off the second half of the school year.

The 2nd half of the year is a great time for a refresher on what it means to show CHAMP behavior at YGS. This Friday, we will have an all school assembly to review CHAMP behavior and what it means to show positive character all year long. This will be a great introduction to the Superhero week our specials teachers will implement the week of January 15th. See more details about Superhero week in the flyer later in this newsletter.

Have a wonderful week!

Guest Speakers Wanted
In order to provide a tangible connection for students to the topics be have been covering in our Second Step lessons, speakers within the community are needed. District 115 is seeking speakers who deal effectively with social and emotional topics through their professional and personal work. All speakers should be deemed appropriate to speak in a public school. Parents and other community members are encouraged to nominate possible speakers who have meaningful connections with children in the community through activities, sports, and other youth and volunteer activities. Community partners and other youth activity sponsors may be considered appropriate nominees. However, each nominee will go through a selection process by the district and each individual school. Please thoughtfully consider nominating a respected community member who connects with students as a positive role model and mentor. Please click on the link to complete the form to nominate a speaker.  Link
