Curriculum Night and Book Fair

Curriculum night is an opportunity to visit your child’s classroom and learn about our school curriculum, daily routines and enrichment programs.  Teachers will be running two back-to-back sessions: 5:30 – 6:00 PM and 6:15 – 6:45 PM.  These two sessions will present identical information.  Specialty teachers will present one session in the YCS Cafe from 5:00 – 5:20 PM.   Please be prompt as we will be adhering to the schedule.  This is an adults only evening. During this time, parents and guardians are also encouraged to stop by the Book Fair in the Cafeteria and shop for some fall reading materials.

Book Fair Volunteers Needed

Please consider assisting with set up, cashiering or break down for the book fair shopping events on 9/13 or 9/16. Even a ½ of your time is appreciated.   You can sign up for a shift HERE or contact Michelle Levitt at ycsmom@ymail.com  for more information.
