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.

 Yake Family Dinner Night Out Thurs., October 24 - 4:00-10:00 PM - BJ's Brewhouse Restaurant
Join us for some really good food with some great Yake families and 20% of all purchases will go back to the Yake PTO. Show the barcode on this flier when ordering your meal October 24. BJ's is also an option in Open Table, so you can reserve your table for dinner that evening if you'd like.

   
Paper Retriever
Recycling Bin

Thanks to Mrs. DeFigueiredo and our Greet Team, we now have a Paper Retriever recycling bin located near the bus loop by our garbage bin.
Please remember to bring your newspapers, magazines, catalogs, office, and school papers to the new green and yellow Paper Retriever 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. These funds can be used for new textbooks, sports equipment, field trips, or other projects. Together we can be good environmental stewards and raise needed funds at the same time. 
When dropping off your paper, please do your best to avoid bus loop pick-up and drop-off time. Our buses typically drop off between 8:40 and 9:10 AM, and pick up between 3:30 and 4:10 PM. Thank you for your understanding as we need to keep our bus lane as we pick up and drop off students.
