Last Friday we celebrated Veteran's Day! We had an amazing turnout and it was great to see our students honor the Veterans who attended! Thank you to everyone who bought a flag in honor or in memory of a loved one. YGS raised $101 which will be donated to the American Legion. Thank you for supporting our Veterans!

This week is Employee Appreciation Week! Yorkville School District will honor employee groups each day throughout the week! This is a time we honor our teachers, paraprofessionals, nursing staff, custodial staff, lunchroom employees and everyone who works at our school!!! If you have some extra time, our staff loves receiving hand written notes from families. Feel free to send those notes to school with your child and we will make sure the appropriate staff receives recognition.

It's beginning to get chilly. As a reminder, the students will go outside if it is 15 degrees or above. Please be sure your child is dressed accordingly. We have students who are wearing shorts to school. Please know it is acceptable for your child to wear shorts, but they will have a 20 minute outside recess if it is above 15 degrees.

Have a great week!
