Message from the Principal

Dear Yellowjacket Families,

It was so nice to see so many families at our Open House earlier this week! This week we also kicked off our PTO Fundraiser - Big Kahuna. While participation is optional, we hope that all of our families will help support our PTO. PTO fundraising helps provide many fun activities and learning materials for our students that would not be possible without their fundraising efforts. If you don't want to participate in the catalog sales, you can make a monetary donation instead. Details are on the back of the catalog.

Next week will be another exciting week. We will celebrate College Week (see schedule below). Fall pictures will be on Thursday. Thursday is also our first Yeager Spirit Day at Torchy Tacos! Friday, we will have our first PTO Spirit Cart of the year during lunches. Students may bring money for Yeager spirit and novelty items.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding of our construction! We have passed all required inspections in the cafeteria so we can begin serving hot food on Thursday of next week! To celebrate we will have pizza and free ice cream on Thursday! The regular hot food menu (found on the district website) will begin next Friday.

Best regards,

Ms. Midkiff, Principal

Tardy- Don't be late!

Announcements begin at 8:35am each day and school starts promptly at 8:40am. If you arrive after 8:40am, your child is tardy. You will need to park and come into the front office to sign in.

How to Get the Lanyard and Hedge Hogz Collectibles

In your packet there is a page of tickets that can be cut out and turned in daily (you can turn in more than one at a time). Every ticket verified by the parent as to items sold can be redeemed for a mystery collectible. The lanyard also comes with the first collectible. If your mystery prize is the Big Kahuna, you also get a screaming chicken!
