    PTO Giving Project for the Holiday Season

    In celebration of the holiday season the YMS PTO is providing stocking stuffers for the children at the Youth Opportunity Center.  Our hope is to engage our students in a charitable activity and give back to the kids in our community.  For this to be successful I am requesting your help.  Please encourage the children to bring in donations!  In an effort to increase participation I am offering a Pizza Party to the first period (Interventions and Extensions) classroom that has the largest average per student donation.  The items listed below are from the requested list from the YOC!  No stockings needed!

     -          Winter Hats

    -          Gloves/mittens

    -          Chapstick

    -          Candy

    -          Little bottles of lotion

    -          For the girls - hair ties

    -          Fun socks (males and females)

    Items should be brought in no later than Friday, December 16.

    It is that time of the year to start planning for our trip to Chicago.  We will be traveling to Chicago on May 17th and 18th, 2017.  We travel with Brightspark and they have made an easy payment plan for all of us to follow.  Click on the link below for a letter explaining the trip and the costs of the trip. The second link is for travel insurance information. The Chicago trip is always a great time and all the 6th grade teachers hope that your student will be able to join us to create some amazing memories with their classmates.  We would also like to invite you to join us on this fun-filled trip.  The more the merrier! 

     We will also be holding a fundraiser in November for your student to be able to cut some or ALL of the cost of the trip!  I would really encourage you and your student to participate in the this great fundraiser...more to come on that later.  For right now, please look over the 2 attached flyers to educate you on how to sign up, the payment plan, and the optional insurance.
