Thank You for a Great Year!

thank-youIt’s hard to believe we’re down to the last week of school! What a fantastic year we’ve had at Lake Youngs. We would like to shout out a HUGE thank you to all of the PTSA and parent volunteers who gave thousands of hours of their time and energy into making Lake Youngs an extra special place for all of our children. Words can’t even express how grateful we are.
Our children were encouraged to read with the Grizzly Reader program and book fairs. They created beautiful art pieces while learning about famous artists with our art docent program and Reflections. The kids got excited about science while completing projects for the science fair and experiencing the Pacific Science Center’s assembly and games. They experienced what it feels like to help others with Kids Helping Kids. They got to perform in front of an audience and support one another at the talent show. They also got to just have some fun as a community with the carnival, welcome-back-to-school night and Italian soda nights. Continue reading

6th Grade Party

sunshine2The 6th grade party is Wednesday, June 17th!  We are getting very excited about this traditional event at Lake Youngs that celebrates the elementary years of our 6th graders. We are still looking for more volunteers and donations for the following areas:

  • Set-up (Wed, June 17th): We will start setting up for activities and food starting at 9:30 AM.
  • Activity Help (12:00—3:30): We need lots of volunteers to help with our “Top Secret” theme activity.  There are 96 students so any amount of time you can help would be greatly appreciated.  Please email Trisha or Melissa if you can help! ( or
