Have you bought your tickets yet?
Auction Ticket prices go up after March 1st.
Early birds save $5 and help us get a
good head count for the party!
$25 now - but $30 after March 1st.


We're Getting Excited!
This year we will play a game of "Heads or Tails" to win a cash pot of cold hard cash -  just a $5 purchase could bring you riches (well, at least some excellent spending money for the other auction items).

Many thanks to Rita Gillihan and her volunteers for the great STEAM night on Wednesday on our gym. The hands-on exhibits gave students from YG and Corridor a wonderful way to look at science and art-based learning in ways designed to be a fun and inspire further exploration.

Next up, SCIENCE FAIR! Hope your children found some good ideas and are ready to get started. 

Thanks to the Science Factory, UO Education Department, River Road Art Bus, and the Hawaiian Snack Food Cart for contributing to the great night.

Join YG as we say goodbye to our spring interns on Wednesday, March 2nd from 5:3--7:00pm in the Cafeteria.
