Fall Festival

We are starting to plan our first major YCS event – and Yorkville’s most popular block party – the YCS Fall Festival. The fun will happen on October 28thfrom 11 AM – 3 PM, on East 88th Street between 1st and York (right in front of YCS). Activities include inflatables, carnival games, arts & crafts and a student designed life-sized maze! There will be grilled burgers, hot dogs, popcorn, cotton candy and lots of other sweet treats. All proceeds benefit the YCS PTA, and support enrichment and other important programs for YCS students.  It takes a village to make this event a success, so please consider volunteering. If you would like to help out, please email our event chair Victoria Brannigan @ victoria.brannigan@googlemail.com. Our Signup Genius should also go live next week.

Parent’s Night Out

Thank you to everyone who organized and attended our first Parent’s Night Out. It was a huge success, and we had a great turnout! Special thanks to: Paula Grady, Nancy Mark, Amanda Wells and to Genesis Bar and Grill.
