New Employee Orientation
Superintendent Andy Wolf welcomed the new teachers during the New Employee Orientation August 22-23. There they were introduced to the curricula, programs and culture of Yelm Community Schools and received training in the latest district initiatives. “They are an exceptional group of new employees and we are very excited to have these folks join the YCS team,” Supt. Wolf said.
