Happy Mother's Day to all of the YGS moms! I hope you are able to spend some time relaxing today as I truly recognize how hard you work day-in and day-out to make sure your child has everything they need to be successful in life. The love you show to your child and your commitment to their education does not go unnoticed. Enjoy your day!

This message marks the beginning of the countdown to the final 10 days of school! The ABC Countdown will continue this week with Quilt Day tomorrow, Reading is Fun day on Tuesday, Superhero day on Wednesday, Twin Day on Thursday and USA Day on Friday!

All library books need to be returned on Wednesday. Please be sure to help your child remember to return their books so our library does not have any missing books as we prepare for the 2018-2019 school year.

Be sure to stop by Foxy's Ice Cream on Wednesday night! 20% of all proceeds between 4-8pm will go back to the YGS PTO.

On Wednesday, May 23rd, the PTO is hosting a "Rockin' Out Night." I will give a brief farewell speech beginning at 5:30pm in the YGS gym, and will also introduce Mrs. Lech as your new Principal. After the brief speech, families will be invited to paint a rock for our newly added rock garden which allows students to leave their mark year after year during their career at YGS. I truly hope to see all YGS families at school on Wednesday, May 23rd.
There is no school for our Early Childhood students on Friday, May 18th due to Home Visits and/or conferences. Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students have school as usual. Should you have any questions, please contact the main office.

Have a wonderful week!

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?
