YES First Day

posted Sep 7, 2016, 8:12 AM by Becca Wood
Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,

We couldn’t have asked for a smoother opening day. Yarmouth Elementary School is alive with the sounds of teachers and children participating in activities that build classroom communities and strengthen relationships. We opened today with 370 students; we closed in June with 349. We welcome all of our new students and families and are glad you are here to learn and play with us this year.

Each classroom has a Poland Spring water system until our water situation is corrected. Students are encouraged to bring their personal water bottles from home to start each day. There are also cups available in the classrooms. Please clearly label your child’s water bottle.

We have two Open House events scheduled for parents only. Grade Two is Thursday, September 15th 6:00-7:00PM and for Grades Three and Four Monday, September 19th 6:00–7:00PM. This is a time for you to learn about your child’s grade level curriculum, behavioral expectations, and routines. Both events will start in the gym before you go to the classrooms.

This year Karen Renton, a retired teacher, has arranged with Yarmouth Community Services to provide childcare in the YES music room during both Open House dates. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, please call YCS @ 846 – 2406 to reserve a space for your child(ren).

It is my goal to learn all the students’ names by the end of the month, so if they mention some lady keeps bothering them about their names, they are most likely talking about me.

Please feel free to contact me for any reason. I want to know what you think.
