Students in grades 3-8 have been working very hard to prepare for the upcoming PSSA tests in April! To get ready and excited, all students at YSWPCS will participate in a school-wide Spirit Week. Spirit Week is Monday, March 27- Friday, March 31. There is a different dress-up theme for each day, as you will see on the attached flyer. Homeroom teachers will tally the number of students who participate each day. The class with the most participation for the entire week in K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 will earn Rita’s Italian Ice Party on Friday, April 7th!
On Wednesday March 8, a representative from Highmark’s Caring Place visited Young Scholars. During the visit, she taught all our students how to support one another who are grieving. All staff and students wore blue to show love and support for our friends and family who have passed away. The assembly was very uplifting and encouraged the students to be there for one another. If you need more information about the Caring Place, please visit their website https://www.
On March 10th, 2017, YSWPCS had its second-trimester award ceremony for the year. Almost every student received an award. Honor Roll was given to students with all Ss for Kindergarten and all As and Bs for 1st through 8th grade. High Honor Roll was given to students with all Os and Ss for Kindergarten and all As for 1st through 8th grade. Special awards were also given like music scholar, highest objectives for accelerated math, best attendance, and other categories as well as awards for language classes.
We are extremely proud of all of our students and teachers hard work! Thanks to all parents who came and share the moment with us.
During the month of February, our students raised money and awareness for the American Heart Association! Our students learned that heart disease can affect all age groups and that they not only wanted to help those who are sick but also wanted to learn ways that can prevent heart disease. During their PE classes, our students had fun learning about the benefits of exercising (and that jumping rope burns more calories than running!) and also the benefits of staying away from tobacco products! Thank you to all who participated in the effort to keep our students healthy!
