Dear friends and families of Yujin Gakuen,
What a year we have had! We are so happy that we could finish out the year in the building while reestablishing venerable traditions like end of the year plays, field day, and 5th grade promotion. A big thank you to all families, community members, volunteers, staff, and any individuals who donated their time and energy into making this school year memorable and enjoyable. I hope you have a wonderful, fun summer! 🌻 ☀️
Thank you so much for supporting Yujin Gakuen.
Early Release – TOMORROW at 11:45 AM
Note: we will release at 11:45 AM TOMORROW, not 1:45 PM as usual.
Students who want a lunch will have the option of picking up a “Grab-And-Go” sacked lunch to take home with them.
Report Cards Update
Report cards will not be sent home with students tomorrow, as some teachers may have informed you. We will be mailing out report cards as we did last year.
Thank you for your patience as you wait for report card(s) to arrive in the mail.
Kindergarten Teacher Hired
I’m pleased to announce that we hired Alison Johnson to teach kindergarten along with Takako Sensei in the fall. You might know that Alison has been a long-term and frequently requested substitute for YG. She was also an educational assistant for many years and is a parent of two student s- Eleanor at Yujin Gakuen Elementary and Eli at Kelly Middle School. Staff are pleased to have a teacher they know and respect and we are so glad she knows our program and our community very well. Please welcome Alison Sensei to the team!
The following are repeats from prior newsletters, but I’m including them in case you didn’t see them.
