### Please note that this is a date change ###
Last year’s first event was HUGELY popular and sold out quickly.  We have gotten such welcomed excitement about doing this fun event again this year!  Here are just a few showcase families confirmed so far: Switzerland, Columbia, India, Egypt, Maldives, Ethiopia, Dominican Republic and England.  And many more participating in the World Buffet!  Ticket purchase form will go out later this week. We still welcome your interest to show off your heritage, and want to hear from you! Email us to participate at: YcsInternationalNight@gmail.com
 
2018 Auction Donations Needed!
Our 2018 Auction will be held on Saturday, March 24th, 2018 with the theme of “The Sweetest Thing.” Last year, we raised a record amount for YCS due in large part to generous donations from our families.  We’d like to meet or exceed last years numbers, so please start thinking about items you might be able to donate.  The YCS Spring Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year, and every dollar we raise helps support the valuable enrichment programs all our children enjoy and that are not funded by the Department of Education. To contribute a donation, please contact our Co-VP for Major Fundraising, Kate Hrobsky at Kate.hrobsky@yorkvillecommunityschool.org. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Please Return Your YCS Coin Drive boxes by January 22nd. 
Thank you for participating in the YCS coin drive! We’re hoping for 100% participation from all YCS kids and families. Fill your box or just send pocket change! Drop off your child’s box (or a Ziploc bag marked with child’s name/class) in the designated bins in the lobbies.
YCS is Mobile!
