  • Attention all 8th graders — high school is calling! Course Request Forms are due this FRIDAY at the latest. Be sure to look carefully at all of the courses for any special instructions — as some core and elective classes require additional applications and letters of recommendation. See you 8th grade counselor if you have any additional questions — or if you need a new copy of your CRF.

  • And speaking of high school classes — the YHS Theater and Music departments are recruiting upcoming 9th graders for next year.  These performance-based elective classes give students the chance to learn new skills, make new friends, and even embark on new careers.  Theatre Arts offers classes for both ONSTAGE and BACKSTAGE; while Music has classes in Music Theory and Guitar.  For more information, contact Ms. Cadby for theater or Mr. Bersch for music, both at Yorktown.

  • TODAY is your LAST CHANCE to buy a Crush for your Crush — or special someone!   Just go to the SCA table at your grade-level lunch: it’s 1-dollar for a can — or 2-dollars to keep it ANONYMOUS.  Recipients will get their Crush on Thursday during TA — which also happens to be Valentine’s Day. Once again — get your Crush for a Crush TODAY!
