Race for Education letters will be going into the mail by the end of this week. If you requested a PDF copy of your child’s letter to send to your email contacts, you should receive them in your email by the end of today. Volunteers will be needed for the day of the event, November 19th. We will let you know when the Volunteer request list has been added to the Volunteer! page.

Spirit Wear orders are due BY November 1st if you are ordering online. Paper orders are due by this Friday, Oct. 23rd.

Our next PTA meeting is Monday, November 2nd at 6:30PM in the YSES Cafeteria. Please plan to attend. We have a lot to talk about and we want to hear from you!

Volunteer Training

There are two options for our mandatory volunteer training this year.  You may attend the face-to-face training at YSES from 9:00-9:30 AM on October 2, 2015 or you may complete the on-line training at home.

On-Line Training

Watch the PowerPoint and then print out the confidentiality form, sign it and send to school with your child. You will be able to find the PowerPoint and confidentiality form on the YSES Website on the front page.  Once this process is complete, you are welcome to chaperone and volunteer at YSES.  Thank you!
