Please fill out the NYC DOE School Survey!
Each year, all parents, teachers, and students in grades 6-12 take the NYC School Survey. The survey is aligned to the DOE’s Framework for Great Schools. It is designed to collect important information about each school’s ability to support student success. School leaders use feedback from the survey to reflect and make improvements to schools and programs. Results from the survey used to help measure school quality, and the classes that achieve 100% participation will win a party! (Make sure you let your teacher know you did the survey.) Help YCS by filling this out today!

2019 YCS Auction Donations and Support Needed!
The YCS Spring Auction is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we need YOUR help!  Every dollar we raise helps support the valuable enrichment programs all our children enjoy and that are not funded by the Department of Education. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Get Your Tickets Our 2019 Auction will be held on Saturday, March 23rd – it’s the biggest party of the year so get your tickets today!  Click here to buy tickets now or send this form and your payment to the PTA office. Tickets will also be available at drop-off every morning and during the parent teacher conferences!

Donate a bottle of wine – If you have any bottles of wine laying around the house we will take them!  This year we will have a “Grab A Bottle of Wine” at the auction so we need as many as we can collect.
