Parent Dashboard  The online Parent Dashboard was developed by the MDE in collaboration with the Center for Educational Performance and Information (CEPI) to advance the State Board of Education’s vision of an easy-to-use dashboard filled with meaningful school-level data that offers a more balanced picture of school quality.

The Parent Dashboard launched January 9, 2018 after months of extensive input by parents and educators. It can be accessed on any computer or mobile device - MI School Data Parent Dashboard.

 Kids Against Hunger


Sat., February 1 - Third, fourth, and fifth graders from Yake will once again have an opportunity to participate in this year’s Kids Against Hunger event to be held at Bates Elementary. Students in grades 3-5 can sign up to help with Kids Against Hunger all week. As of now, we have 9 - 3rd graders, 14 - 4th graders, and 14 - 5th graders. We hope to have at least 25 students from each grade. Gators in grades 3-5 can pick up permission slips from the office or from Mrs. Crane's classroom. Remember, this is a great experience for Gators and their parents to participate in side by side. Parents are always welcome to join their Gators in helping with packing meals during Kids Against Hunger.

We are also in need of parent volunteers to help us make this event a great success. If you are interested in helping, please e-mail Megan Crane.

Paper Retriever
Recycling Bin

We now have a Paper Retriever recycling bin located near the bus loop by our garbage bin.
Not only is this a wonderful environmental stewardship program, we also earn money for the paper that is collected, and the more recyclable paper donated by the community, the more funds we can raise.
When dropping off your paper, please do your best to avoid bus loop pick-up and drop-off time.
