Cominghome / Spirit Week was a big success! :)  Thank you Ms. Allen and Team for organizing our Cominghome Week! Thank you YCHS Staff for leading the way and showing your spirit all week! Well done Grizzly Nation! 

The last full week of Feb is upon us! Big week ahead with our YCHS Black History Production happening Thurs evening and Fri during school. Mr. Taylor, his supporting staff members and our scholars have worked really hard on this! Please make sure to support them and encourage them this week. I know that our scholars will be nervous....
