Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! It is with great pleasure that I write this message to you as we begin another outstanding and exciting school year. I look forward to continuing the extraordinary tradition of academic excellence since the school’s opening in 1902.
At Yantacaw, there is a strong sense of community. We have created an environment where students reach their full potential through the support and collaboration with parents, teachers, peers, and administrators. A positive school climate resonates throughout the building which helps to foster and enhance the academic, social and emotional growth of every child. Our staff is composed of dedicated and caring professionals who consider themselves a family. To ensure student success, educators must set high academic expectations for all students and provide them with the support necessary to achieve their goals. We will inspire and challenge our students through differentiated learning, offering individual instruction that is responsive to the needs of all our students.
As a community, the Yantacaw family must work together to prepare our children for the challenges they will encounter in the future. We will continue to promote a culture of respect and an environment that welcomes all students. Students are encouraged to take academic risks, to challenge themselves, and grow as individuals. These elementary school years will have a lasting impression on their development and growth and I am deeply committed and excited to be a part of such an integral time in their lives. We pride ourselves at Yantacaw, we work as a team, and are committed to the success of every child. I look forward to another exciting school year ahead!
