Straight from the Hart - August

  • August 1, 2023

    Dear Yellowjacket Families,

    Welcome to the 2023 - 2024 school year! We are thrilled to welcome our students back to Yeager Elementary for the First Day of School on Monday, August 28th! We hope that you were able to relax and make special memories with your friends and families this summer. Now it is time to look forward to a wonderful new school year as our teachers #BringTheMagic in their classrooms! We are striving to build not just a school but an unforgettable experience for our students that they will talk about for years to come.

    Our incredible staff of educators have been preparing for this school year throughout the summer attending multiple conferences and professional development courses to prepare amazing experiences for the new school year. We are also grateful to our dedicated custodial staff as they worked all summer getting our school in pristine shape.

    Yeager Elementary is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful school and have high expectations for each and every student. Together with our dedicated staff, we will work to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Our Yellowjacket motto of “Together We SWARM! Today and Everyday!” will resonate throughout the building everyday from our students and staff to guide our Yellowjacket Family mission to provide a rigorous, joyful, and inclusive school environment. Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.

    Partnering with families is crucial to promote a healthy transition to school both socially and emotionally. We recognize that students may be feeling anxious with the start of a new school year and we will continue to place a strong emphasis on social emotional learning while focusing on building classroom community. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our school website, social media accounts, and opting in to receive emails and texts through school messenger.
