We value our partnership with our families and want everyone to experience a sense of belonging in our schools. If you didn't get an opportunity to complete the quick survey during conferencing, you still have time to provide feedback. Each school has a different survey to reflect on the experience at individual schools. If you have students at multiple schools, please complete the survey for each one. Your input by December 16 is greatly appreciated.
On November 1, we held our first "Community Conversation" this year about substance use. Thank you to our panel Coroner Gary Warnock, Sheriff John Snaza and Lt. Tim Rudloff (County Drug Task Force) for participating along with our own Shannon Gubser (SEL Coach) and Skylar Cole (Social Worker). This a serious issue in Thurston County, and Yelm is not immune to the impact. The one hour event was recorded and is available on our website.
We are excited to partner with the Yelm Chamber and City of Yelm to coordinate the Christmas in the Park event. On December 2, Friday night, the city will light the park, host Santa pictures and have a cocoa trail. On Saturday, December 3, the all day event starts with a parade down Yelm Ave starting from Yelm Theater to the City Park. The event is completely FREE.
