Principal’s Welcome


Monday, July 25, 2016

Dear Students & Families,

I hope you have all had a great summer!  I say it every year, but boy time is just flying!  It doesn’t seem long ago that we said goodbye for the summer and now we are getting ready to open the doors of YES and kick off a fantastic 2016-17 school year!  

YES will have three new additions to our staff this school year!  Please take the time to welcome each of them when you have the chance, they are truly awesome individuals and will do amazing things for our students!

  • Kami Flynt will be our new K-5 Art Teacher.  Kami is not a new face at YES, she has spent many years as a paraprofessional in our kindergarten classrooms.  I am so excited for the students to benefit from her energy, enthusiasm and fresh new ideas!  Kami and her husband Troy have 3 children, Kinsley, Bladyn and Emory.
  • Amanda Folts will be working in our SELF program.  Amanda attended high school at Cross County and is a recent graduate of Wesleyan!  She brings with her some awesome experiences and we are excited to have her as part of our team and learn from her!
  • Libby Kissinger will be a new 4th grade teacher.  Libby is a recent graduate of Hastings College and has already spent a great deal of time in York as she is also the assistant volleyball coach at YHS.

One of the things that I need YOUR help with is to collect current contact information for each parent/guardian.  On the next page you will find a QR Code that you can scan or use the link listed to take you to a very brief survey.   This survey will take you about 2-3 minutes to complete and you can easily do it on your cell phone.  Thanks in advance for completing this survey, it is a large task to collect email and contact information for 540 students, your help is greatly appreciated!

I look forward to seeing each of you in just a short few weeks.  My contact information is on the next page, please do not ever hesitate to contact me!
