A STEAM night just for YG and Corridor kids -
Join us! 

TODAY! February 11th @6:30pm the PTO will have a guest speaker:  Charlie Jett, the assistant principal at Kelly Middle School. He will speak about the Japanese program at Kelly as well as bring a student and a parent who participate in the program at Kelly.  We will hold the meeting in Jemei Sensei's room instead of the cafeteria.

Do you have a sibling you want to enroll at YG for any grade level? Then the 4J school Choice is your ticket to apply! Please go to http://4jschoolchoice.com before February 29th! Out of district applications will be open March 1st.

OF COURSE you are going to attend this BEST WEEKEND OF THE YEAR event next weekend - and if you would like to be a part of it from behind the scenes, check out this opportunity from Rita below!
 
I am looking for some parent volunteers to help me make sure everything is running smoothly in the Children's Carnival Room at the Asian Celebration.  I am especially looking for parents who do NOT have children performing to keep an eye on the room during YG's performance as my son will be performing and I'd like to see it.
 
In the Children's Carnival Room, parent volunteers will ONLY be making sure the games are covered by the other volunteers (mostly high school) and handing out the prizes at the prize table.  I broke down the shifts into 2 hours each.
