And just like that, the month of Feb is upon us! The 2nd Semester is up and running. Busy, busy month ahead. It will fly by.... stay in tune to our happenings! 

Feb is Black History Month. I am looking forward to YCHS exploring and showing appreciation for black history. I know that every teacher will include black history in their curriculum this month to go along with our building wide celebrations. 


Few Things:

*Get your NWEA testing done! Need support? Reach out to your evaluating Administrator and/or our Instructional Coach Ms. Sizemore. 

*Staff meetings for Feb and March - we will be running 

1.) All Staff together the 1st Tues (YCHS Admin meetings)

2.) All Staff together the 2nd Tues (Instr Coach meetings)

3.) Department Head meetings on the 3rd and 4th Tues

*We have much to do in prepping for the upcoming schedules for the 2nd Semester this year and for the fall of 2020
