Please fill out your 2017 School Survey

Each family should have received a school Survey at Parent Teacher Conferences. This survey is very important because your responses get included as part of our School Quality Snapshot. Please fill out the physical survey and return it to your child’s teacher, or fill it out online at www.nyschoolsurvey.org. The class or classes that have 100% participation (or closest to it) will win a party!Mindfulness Seminar & General Membership PTA Meeting, 3/23

In our ongoing efforts to support YCS Parents and Caregivers, we will be offering a free Mindfulness Seminar in the YCS Cafeteria at 9 am on March 23rd. Michele Galietta, Ph.D. will walk us through ways to be a better multi-tasker, how to regulate emotions and increase relaxation. Immediately following the Seminar we will have the YCS General Membership meeting, where you can hear all about upcoming PTA activities and ways you can get involved. Please join us!

Family Friday for Grades K, 1 and 2

Stop by your child’s classroom on 3/24 at dropoff to hear more about what they are learning in class and ways you can support them at home.
