Coin Drive is in Full Swing

Coin drive boxes are pouring in from all the grades! Drop off your child’s box in the lobby bins this week. Many thanks to all the families who have participated so far! Lost your box? Grab a spare in the main lobby. Can’t part with yours? Just drop your change in a ziplock bag with your child’s name and class-number. Not a lot of change? Bring it in any way, every little bit helps fund the amazing enrichment programs at YCS!

Family Friday for Grades K, 1 and 2

Come to your child’s classroom to find out what they are learning and how you can support them at home.
