Congratulations, we have successfully completed the first half of the school year! As you get ready to enjoy your much-deserved winter break, I would like to thank you for your part in helping ensure students attend, learn and thrive at school each and every day.
During this winter break, please encourage your child to continue learning by reading every night and logging on to a school-issued online app like Clever or Khan Academy. We want all our students to start the new year ready to learn!
In addition to learning, we also want all our students to have strong school attendance in the new year! To ensure your child is ready for the first day back, please make sure to establish a regular bedtime and morning routine several days in advance, and don’t forget to set their alarm clock. Also, whenever possible, please avoid scheduling appointments and extended trips while school is in session. Remember that you can always monitor your child’s attendance on Skyward. To learn more about why attendance matters so much, you can visit our YES Prep attendance webpage.
On behalf of our YES Prep family, I want to wish you a joyous and safe holiday season, and may the new year be fruitful.
We look forward to seeing our students back after Winter Break, bright and early on Wednesday, January 4, 2023.
Thank you again for giving us the privilege of working with you to educate your children!
