RE: Yale Monthly Update
Back to School:
This year we had a very smooth start to the year. We presently have 46 students enrolled. We are excited to not only welcome Mrs. Cortez aboard but also Mrs. Casteel who will be providing some additional reading support at our school.
For many years Julia provided Art lessons to students at Yale school. During that time she bravely fought cancer, a 17 year battle in fact. Tuesday September 5th she passed away in the company of her family. We feel a deep loss at our school. Our school counselor Dee Ray was on site the day staff announced the news to students to provide additional support to kids who might need it and will also be available to students Monday morning. Mr. Huffman offered to step in and provide Art lessons to our students in her place.
