This week was a busy week. Many students participated in our winter benchmark assessments. Students were assessed in various areas of literacy and mathematics. These assessments help guide instruction and allow teachers to make necessary adjustments in their daily lessons to ensure all students are successful in their academics. It is hard to believe that in just one week, we will have celebrated 100 days of school. Be on the lookout for a flyer to come home this week outlining the festivities for the 100th day of school. Here's to another great week of learning at YGS!

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
