All School Meeting
(and It's Not Over Zoom!)

Set your calendar for the first YIHS All-School event in over a year!  Wednesday, May 19th, we'll start the evening off with a picnic (not a potluck) out on the lawn.  Then we'll move under the big top for some rousing speeches from students, parents, and faculty.  We'll also be casting our ballots for next year's closed committees.  See you there at 5:30pm - IRL!

Poem of the Week

from Yellow Birds
King Yoori

In yellow sunlight on the golden road
I stand alone.
All, all are mine—rice fields and golden road,
All but the one thing I desire.
In a tree by the road two yellow birds are mating.
Why must they sing so gaily ? 

Thank You
