YCS Spring Auction – The Sweetest Celebration!

This year’s YCS Spring Auction was our most successful auction to date.  The cafeteria was transformed into a colorful Candyland, filled with treats created by every student in the school. There was an actual candy car packed with sweet delights, food from local restaurants and a DJ spinning party favorites.  And, of course, there was the auction: Hamilton tickets, a signed Derek Jeter bat, a stay at the Lowell Hotel and the ever popular “Principal for a Day”.  While a detailed thank you note and final results of the auction will be made available shortly, we just want to say THANK YOU… this our community.  #YCSweetest.
