YCS Fundraising Committee

We are looking for parents and caregivers to join the YCS Fundraising Committee, which helps develop and suggest new ideas for fundraising for the PTA. Without the funds we raise as a PTA, our enrichment programs would no longer exist. We need your support!

Box Tops for Education

Please keep clipping and submitting your Box Tops for Education! Mark them with your child’s name and class, and they might win a Pizza Party!
