With great Tiger pride, I am so excited about beginning the 2016-17 school year at Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School! I trust this letter finds you well refreshed and recharged to begin new learning experiences this school year. I also want to share how immensely grateful and proud I am of our school community for the many ways we work together to facilitate a comprehensive, effective, and highly engaging learning environment for all of our scholars.
This year promises to be one full of engaging, hands on, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. LITERACY is our primary focus, allowing a renewed emphasis on Rigor, Relevance, Relationships and Engagement. These core elements are the fabric that guide our cooperative work as we prepare our students to meet high expectations through innovative approaches to instruction, diverse opportunities to showcase skill mastery and accountability toward academic achievement by every member of the Yeatman Team. Lessons will focus on reading and writing across content on a daily basis to accelerate achievement of every scholar. “Students who read, lead to succeed” is our commitment to ensure our scholars are ready for college, allowing them to focus on post-secondary goals prior to entering high school. In addition, scholars will have a well-rounded middle school experience, through a plethora of extracurricular clubs, activities, athletic teams and programs.
e place a high value on home and school communication here at YLCPMS. I cannot express to you the vital role it plays in each scholar’s success. Please do not hesitate to contact us when the need arises; you are always welcome. We will do likewise to ensure you are aware of the progress your scholar, our school, and the school district are making on a quarterly basis. We want and encourage our YLCPMS families to stay abreast of their scholar’s studies and activities. We invite you to work in partnership with us to take advantage of these opportunities while keeping in mind all aspects of the high expectations we have for each of our scholars. There is no exception to what we know our scholars can do when all members of the Yeatman family work together in the best interest of academic and social achievement.
We look forward to an extraordinary year where we build from a foundation of progress and EXCELLENCE! It takes a collaborative effort for us to be successful. Therefore, with your help we will make this the best year ever by working together for the good of our scholars, providing a quality educational experience enabling success to surpass their post-secondary goals!
We want all of our scholars to be part of the Yeatman Championship Team that is demonstrated by academic and social excellence. Let’s be the Champion that each of our scholars deserve!
Welcome back to Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School, where EXCELENCE is our only option!
