Community Building Through the Arts Workshops

Thank you to everyone who has rsvp’d for the upcoming Community Building Through The Arts Workshops. We have had such an enthusiastic response that the 3rd-5th grade workshop is full. There is still space in the PK- K and 1st and 2nd Grade workshops! CLICK HERE. If you would like to join us return the tear-off portion of the flyer to your classroom teacher by this Wednesday, May 9th. You can also rsvp by email to amanda.wells@yorkvillecommunityschool.org Please include your child’s name, class and number of people attending. We hope to make this an annual event that can be expanded to include even more families next year!!

Spring Book Fair & Family Shopping Day

On May 18th we kick off our Spring Book fair! There will be a special Saturday shopping event on 5/19, and students will also have the opportunity to make book purchases throughout the following week, 5/21 – 5/25. Please reference the May Calendar that was sent home for the specific shopping days for your child’s class.  Also, we are always in need of parent volunteers. Please check out our Sign Up Genius here to volunteer.

Pajama Day at YCS is Friday, 5/18!

We are kicking off our Book Fair week with this fun and important event. Wear your PJs to school and bring a pair to donate. Just drop them off in the bins in the east or west lobby from 5/18 – 5/25. All sizes are welcome. CLICK HERE for details.

Next Year’s YCS PTA Executive Board Needs You!

Please consider running for a position on the YCS PTA Executive Board for the 2018 – 2019 school year. There are many positions available, and all positions can be filled by either a single parent or two parents running together. Nominations are DUE at the next PTA Meeting, Tuesday, May 22nd, and you don’t need to be present at the meeting to be eligible to run. All 2018 – 2019 YCS parents are eligible to nominate themselves or another YCS parent for Executive Board positions. Look for information on Duties of Officers in our bylaws here, or on the PTA or Main Office doors.
