Bring Your Own Picnic
We'll Supply the Ideas

Join us for an old-fashioned romp through some spring picnic food and some really excellent student work.  We'll have work from all year on display inside*, outside, and upside down, and we'll cap it off with an eclectic performance and student awards.  All in real actual life. Picnic starts at 5:30pm.

*Masks required indoors for everyone

Potluck of Ideas

Last Day of School


Change is Coming


Run for It!

For any boys who might be interested in playing basketball for La Farge next year, there will be a weekly open gym Monday nights 6-8 pm, beginning June 7. Feel free to contact the coach Matt Benson at 632-2029.

We are considering the creation of a YIHS Cross Country team.  For those who aren’t familiar, cross country is medium distance running.  Please contact me if you would be interested in running this fall.

Grow Your Community and Your Tomatoes

We are embarking on a renewed gardening adventure for Pleasant Ridge & YIHS families to engage in community and gardening together this season. The Growing for Good Garden space has room for 3-4 more families to join our community garden! We will meet once a week to work together, with one hour devoted to collective work for Growing for Good. Interested? Contact Vicki for more details. 606-3760,

Graduation - Finally!

Poem of the Week

from Idylls of the King
by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Laborious for her people and her poor --
Voice in the rich dawn of an ampler day --
Far-sighted summoner of War and Waste
To fruitful strifes and rivalries of peace --
Sweet nature gilded by the gracious gleam
Of letters, dear to Science, dear to Art,
Dear to thy land and ours, a Prince indeed,
Beyond all titles, and a household name,
Hereafter, thro' all times, Albert the Good.

Break not, O woman's-heart, but still endure;
Break not, for thou art Royal, but endure,
Remembering all the beauty of that star
Which shone so close beside Thee that ye made
One light together, but has past and leaves
The Crown a lonely splendour.

          May all love,
His love, unseen but felt, o'ershadow Thee,
The love of all Thy sons encompass Thee,
The love of all Thy daughters cherish Thee,
The love of all Thy people comfort Thee,
Till God's love set Thee at his side again!
