Boy, this event gets better and better every year! All our area schools came up with excellent meals for under $1 per serving.

Congratulations to everyone, and thanks to Jane Siemon and Dani Lind for mentoring the YIHS student team!
YIHS Girls Volleyball
The YIHS team was defeated by Hillsboro in their first ever WIAA regional play-off game. They played hard
against a very tough, talented, experienced team and learned that the play-offs are not so scary after all. :)
to one and all who made this year's volleyball experience possible, especially our two coaches, Paula Grenier
and Natalie McIntire
YIHS Long Range Planners
have been hard at work already this year. To help move our vision to the next level, they are asking YIHS community members to answer the Question of the Week
. Each week a new question will be posted to our website relating to a different aspect of our developing Long Range Plan. Do you think we should have a campus of yurts? Grow greenhouse vegetables? Offer a course on calculus through acrobatics? Help shape our future!
