EYMS Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide a nurturing educational environment where students develop academic, physical, social, and emotional skills necessary for a lifetime of learning.

Principal's Message

Happy 2019! It is hard to believe we are entering our second semester of school already. I know we have already seen a lot of sickness but we aren't out of the woods yet. In an effort to help your child stay in school when they CAN be, YCS has created an Illness Guideline Handout for home. There are times when your child should not attend school and keeping your child at home during these times will prevent the spread of illness to other children at school. But there are other times when they may not be feeling his/her best but can still attend school . Click on the image below to see the guidelines.

I use and love Twitter. I find some great articles there so I would like to take this opportunity to share some things I have been reading. I look for articles that are relevant as an administrator but also as a parent. I hope you find these interesting and beneficial.
