Dear Young Families,

Today, Mrs. Zalabak’s structured classroom visited Bronkberry Farms.

On Wednesday, students participated in Walk to School Day before school and during recess time. Thank you to the PTA for sponsoring this event and providing students with participation prizes.

The Naperville Half Marathon/5K occurs this Sunday. We look forward to cheering on our staff and parent runners participating at this wonderful event.

Conferences can be scheduled through Power PTC through Friday, 10/26 at 4:00 pm.

Please take a few moments to read about upcoming events and activities at Young School.
