Principal's Message

Dear YDMA Families,

On behalf of the entire YDMA community, I want to wish you a happy 2023! I sincerely hope you all enjoyed the winter break and found time for rest and rejuvenation as we enter the new year. 

We are looking forward to many exciting events at YDMA. Our next PTA breakfast will be on Monday, January 9th at 8:10am and the next PTA meeting will be on Tuesday, January 10th at 6pm. There will be two Coffee and Tea Breaks with Ms. D and Ms. Ellman this month. On January 12th the topic will be Middle School Admissions and on January 19th the topic will be the ELA state exam, both starting at 9am. There will be a Town Hall meeting with Ms. D and Ms. Ellman on January 25th at 5:30pm.

Pajama day will be on January 27th!

Please remember there will be no school on Monday, January 16th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

At this point of our academic year, all students in grades K-5 will be assessed again using the Fountas & Pinnell benchmark system and i-Ready. Teachers use the student data collected from these assessments to provide additional needed academic support and interventions for students. Your child’s teacher will be sharing the data to let you know how your child performed on these assessments and in other subject areas. Remember that you can stay linked to your child's academic progress through Class Dojo and Progress Reports that will be distributed next week. These tools are valuable resources for communication and should be monitored frequently.

Thank you for your continued support and collaboration. We are looking forward to seeing you at many of the upcoming events this month.
