YHS Update 10/12/12

Dear YHS Parents,

I have two items for you in today's update:  Picture Day Information and Schedule for Parent & Principal Coffees.

1.  Picture Day Information:  Next Tuesday is School Picture Day at Yarmouth High School.  Your child either already received or will receive on Monday a flyer/order form for the school pictures.  I have also attached a scanned copy of the order form in case you need that.  We take school pictures of all 9th, 10th, and 11th graders regardless of whether pictures are ordered since they are used both for PowerSchool and for school id cards.  Since seniors have a separate yearbook photo, we don't schedule the seniors  for pictures.  However, any senior who wants a picture can get photographed during first break/lunch.  Any student who misses picture day or doesn't like the picture taken Tuesday can get a photo taken on the retake day which will be scheduled later in the fall.

2.  Parent and Principal Coffee Schedule:  Throughout the year, I host parents for informal discussions of school issues.  I alternate the time back and forth between early morning and evening so that as many parents can attend as possible.  Sometimes, I will publicize a particular issue that we will discuss and other times the time is open to any topic.   Usually, there is a mix of parents from different grades so that parents can ask each other questions.  The first Parent and Principal Coffee will be held on Tuesday morning, October 30th from 8:00-9:30 AM in the Flex Room.  All of the dates are posted on the school calendar (http://yhs.yarmouthschools.org/calend) and will be updated if any changes are made. November 27th is an evening session from 6:30-8:00 PM in the YHS Library.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please be in touch.


Ted Hall, Principal
