Thank you for participating in parent teacher conferences this week! It was great to see so many families in the building. Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to be a part of your child's education. This past week was our only scheduled conferences for the school year. However, we are only a phone call or an email away! Please don't hesitate to contact your child's teacher throughout the school year if you have questions or concerns. We are always happy to meet with parents to discuss their child's educational needs.

A HUGE "Thank You!" to all of the families who provided our staff with breakfast, lunch and dinner on Thursday's 12 hour day!!! The food was delicious and our staff is VERY appreciative of the meals provided on this long day. Thank you to the PTO for organizing this for our staff.

Halloween is TUESDAY!!! As a reminder, a letter outlining the special events for Halloween went home two weeks ago. The letter is also posted below or you can click HERE for a printable version. Please be sure to read the information and let the main office know if you have any questions. The YGS Staff is looking forward to celebrating Halloween with the students on the 31st.

Have a great week!

We have made it to our 4 th Second Step lesson during PE class. Students have been learning about following directions, using self-talk and being assertive. Within each lesson students take part in brain builder activities, group and partner discussion, along with talking through different scenarios related to each topic.

Each week we will provide HOME LINKS in our weekly newsletter for families to try at home and for students to show what they have learned that week in our Second Step lesson.
Please follow the attached link to find your child’s home link.

  • The PTO is hosting a "Giving Back" project where we are asking YGS families to donate gently used coats. Donated coats will go to YGS families in need FIRST, then any additional coats will go to the Kendall County Food Pantry. We hope you will consider donating a gently used coat to help our community.
