We are excited for the new school year to begin. The school has undergone some changes. We would like to welcome Principal Steven Elam, Associate Principal Nina Harris, and Assistant Principal Kier Ingraham to our building. There are also some new faces on the staff, including teachers, 2 Culture and Climate coaches, and support staff. All staff have been working diligently to prepare classrooms and plan lessons that will help our students reach their full potential. We are so grateful and proud that you have chosen Ypsilanti Community Middle School for your child's education and look forward to a great year.

The Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools - Ypsilanti Community Middle School is implementing  Project SUCCESS (Schools Using Coordinated Community Efforts to Strengthen Students). The goals of the program are to prevent and reduce alcohol, tobacco and other drug use. Project SUCCESS is funded by the Community Mental Health Partnership of Southeast Michigan and is a partnership between Ypsilanti Community Schools and Michigan Medicine’s Regional Alliance for Healthy Schools (RAHS).

The program entails classroom and group discussion and we need to give the parent an opportunity to opt- out of the programming if they so desire.

Support Your School

There are several ways to support your student and YCMS. Here are just a few:

Develop a partnership with your child's teachers and school staff

1. Meet your child's teachers and have open communication with them
2. Get to know who who's at your school- there are plenty of staff members, other than teachers, that can support your child
3. Attend parent-teacher conferences and keep in touch with your child's teachers
4. Stay informed- read school newsletters and emails, check out your school's website, check your child's Powerschool account, and ask your child about his/her day

Get involved with your child's school

1. Join the PTO- being a part of this group helps you connect with teachers, other parents, and community members

2. Share your time and talents- volunteer to help at school events,
read in classrooms, or help with small group activities

3. Participate in school fundraisers

4. Attend school board meetings- this gives you the opportunity to provide your input and lets you see how the school board makes decisions that affect your community’s schools
