March 3 marks the date for the Young Scholars First Annual Black History Awards Ceremony! This event will highlight the many achievements and contributions of African-Americans throughout our country’s history. Our very own students will be honoring these important historical figures while teaching the whole school about their crucial role in all of our lives. Look for the Live-Stream link on the website on the day of the assembly.
On February 17th, the YSWPCS and YSMCS communities celebrated International Mother Language Day! We kicked the day off with each homeroom at YSWPCS sharing what they have learned about their adopted countries! There was singing, dancing, plays and more! Our families were able to watch the action on Livestream. Later in the day, our schools came together at CCAC South to enjoy international food booths, Ebru art demonstrations, calligraphy, an international artifact raffle and more student performances! This was an incredible day to celebrate not just our diversity but also the qualities that we all share!
In preparation for the next school year, we have asked all families to fill out the Intent to Return form. This form is to be filled out and returned to the school no later than March 1. If you have any questions regarding this please contact the school. Thank you!
On Wednesday, February 1, YSWPCS kicked off our annual campaign to educate our students and families about heart health! Our friends from the American Heart Association are making this learning experience very fun! So, throughout the month of February, students will be collecting money and educating those who donate about how to keep themselves healthy! Then, we will be holding our Jump Rope for Heart event during the week of February 27 – March 2 in the Physical Education classes where students will get to exercise their lungs, hearts and the rest of their bodies at different stations!
Last night, YSWPCS held its annual Family Reading Night. The theme for this night was Camping. Students enjoyed making pine cone owls and popsicle stick tents as their craft. They also had a lot of fun following the animal foot prints around the school while they completed a nature themed scavenger hunt. Families participated in a wonderful pot luck dinner, complete with yummy camp foods. Families were also able to enjoy our S’mores bar and Trail Mix bar in the art room. We appreciate everyone that came out to support the Scholastic Book Fair, and we hope that everyone enjoyed themselves as much as we did!
