Ypsilanti Community Middle School (YCMS) offers targeted instructional support for 6th graders, ensuring purposeful, exploratory learning. In 7th grade, all students follow a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) focused program. In 8th grade, the ACTech drives an Arts, Communication, Technology program. This enriching, varied approach prepares students for high school where they can choose a path in ACTech or STEMM Middle College (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing).

Lion King Fundraising

YCMS/Estabrook Musical       Link to GoFundMe page.

Students at YCMS and Estabrook are so excited about their future performance of "The Lion King, Jr," in April. Our school received a grant from the Disney Theatrical Group that includes the show materials, a musical theater curriculum, and the rights to hold a public performance. Students have already started working in groups or "prides", practicing reading scripts and learning songs and choreography. Auditions will be held in December and students who are in the show will be able to go see the live Broadway version of the show in Detroit, but we need sponsors and donations for this. Some art students will be helping with making masks and set pieces. Other students and parents will be involved in drumming, creating masks, costumes, and sets and working behind the stage. We also need money for these supplies.

Our schools have not done a middle school musical in a long time and many of our students have never been to a musical. They have the love and passion for singing and performing and I think this will be an amazing experience for them. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!
