With great Tiger pride, I am so excited about the second half of the 2017-2018 school year at Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School! I 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 continues to be one full of engaging, hands on, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms. LITERACY has been our primary focus, allowing a renewed emphasis on Rigor, Relevance, Relationships and Engagement in every classroom. These core elements will be the fabric that guides our cooperative work as we prepare our students for new expectations, new assessments, and new approaches to instruction and new standards by which to measure success. We weave these four elements into Yeatman’s goals of strengthening our instructional foundation. Through the adoption of the English Language Arts and Mathematics curricula, this year’s lessons will continue to focus on writing across content on a daily basis to accelerate achievement of every scholar. Scholars will have a well-rounded middle school experiencethrough a plethora of extracurricular clubs, activities, athletic teams and programs.
We place a high value on home and school communication here at YLCPMS. I cannot express to you the vital and integral 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. 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 continuing an extraordinary year where we build from a foundation of 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!
Welcome to Yeatman-Liddell College Preparatory Middle School, where EXCELLENCE is our only option!
