Happy New Year!
I hope that 2013 brings the best to you and your family. It is hard
to believe that we are nearing the end of the first semester and already
to begin a new calendar year. Please remind your student time will go
even faster and that they need to continue to stay current with their
studies and to take full advantage of all the help available at school.
We are appreciative of our students who donated money to our coin drive.
Our students raised over $600 in two weeks to provide needy families
with a turkey or ham dinner for the holidays. We thank all of our students
for their generosity!
We would like to thank our students, Mrs. Kretschmer and Mrs. Pedersen
for their excellent performances at the Christmas music program. If
you have a son or daughter in one of our music programs, please encourage
them to continue their involvement in music. Our Academic Olympics and
volleyball seasons are underway with wrestling to follow. Good luck
to all of your teams!
With the unthinkable tragedy that took place at Sandy Hook Elementary
in Connecticut, we want to remind parents that we are taking all precautions
to continue to keep all students and staff safe at school. We will train
all students and staff in monthly safety drills which, on occasion,
may involve law enforcements. We will notify all parents and guardians
of these drills in advance so that everyone is aware of the trainings.
It is imperative that all guests coming to YIS sign in at the office
and receive a guest pass if they are going to visit classrooms or staff
outside of the office. Please enter the school through the main office
as well. Remind your son or daughter to report to any staff member anything
they feel might be a threat to anyone’s safety. We will continue
to be visible and vigilant at our school!
As we are in the heart of winter, please be sure that your child is
adequately prepared for the cold weather. Personal hygiene and hand
washing also become critically important with the flu and cold season
Thanks again for all of your support of your child and our school and
have a wonderful 2013!
