Important Information

Step it Up Fundraiser- If your student has earned the Golden Ticket from our Step it Up Fundraiser please make sure they bring it to school on Monday


Math Parent Night-

The math teachers at Yorba Linda Middle School would like to invite you to Math Parent Night on Monday, September 23, from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm!


  • During this time, we will be providing information about the math placement process as well as the various math pathways. We will discuss, for example, the various objective measures that PYLUSD used in determining your child’s math placement for this year. Based on the math class your child is currently enrolled in, you can see the classes your child will take each year from now until the end of high school. If you would like your child to move onto a different pathway, we will also be discussing the district protocols for how that could happen. In addition, we will spend some time exploring the abundance of resources that are provided by the publisher (i.e. Big Ideas) of our math textbooks. We plan to answer questions such as: “What can a student do if he/she is lacking certain math skills from a previous grade(s)? Is there a way to access the lesson if a student is sick or has an upcoming planned absence? What are some ways to get relatively quick feedback to ensure that the material is being mastered at a high level?”



6th Grade Homework Club- Each Thursday after school is the homework club for 6th-grade students in room 17. The homework club runs until 4:30 pm. There is no homework club on days of school dances and holidays.


Student Pick Up (safety issue)- If you are picking up your student in front of the school they must be escorted by an adult to a car. Please use the designated crosswalk area in front of the office doors to safely cross. There have been some close calls and safety is our priority.



Students can earn PBIS Points if they participate in the following:


  • College Gear Day Every Wednesday
  • YLMS Spirit Wear Every Friday
