PTA Art Project

posted Sep 26, 2017, 5:30 AM by Terry Keesee   [ updated Sep 26, 2017, 5:33 AM ]

ALL of the YBES Tigers were so well behaved and had the BEST time doing their art projects. 🐯 

Please ask your student(s) about what they were able to make and let them tell you all about it! 🎨 

Each grade level had a craft/art project based on a fish. We used the fish theme to go along with the book "Only One You" that our Guidance Counselor, Miste Droog, is reading/discussing with our students during her class time. 🐠 

Also, a very special THANK YOU to each parent and teacher that joined us to make sure today was possible. Thank you for all of the extra hands, encouragement and enthusiasm. You are appreciated!! ⭐️

PTA Playground Update

posted May 18, 2017, 6:08 AM by Terry Keesee   [ updated May 18, 2017, 6:08 AM ]

Tiger Teachers and Guardians,

We are so very excited that the playground improvements will be completed soon!  The kids are very happy with the updates and have enjoyed playing the last couple of weeks.

The new piece of equipment has been installed, the new boarders have been installed, the new rubber mats are in place and one tractor trailer load of wood carpet has already been spread.  In the next few weeks the replacement swing will be added, the yellow freestanding poles will be removed and the additional three tractor trailer loads of wood carpet will be delivered and spread.

Thank you all for your support of the fundraising needed to make these changes possible!  We wanted to give you an update on the money that has been spent and will be spent over the next few years to make sure that the playground stays safe for our students to use.
