Summer went by so fast! We were delighted to have kids back at YYFAP again. We held two 4-week camps for preschool and school-age children. At the end of August, we also hosted the OSU iINVENT camp for middle school students. The school age kids were able to reconnect with friends and engage in fun, outdoor activities. The preschoolers were able to get to know their teachers and make new friends. Lots of learning and adventures happened along the way too!
The beginning of September brought the start of a new school year. Rec Plus and preschool are back to operating in person. We currently have slots available in both the preschool and Rec Plus programs. We are excited to announce that we have a waiver for Preschool Promise that allows all families to participate in our Preschool Promise Program regardless of their income. Links to online registration preschool and Rec Plus are available on our website at www.yachatsyouth.org
We recently added new staff to our growing YYFAP family. Shannon Wiles is our new cook. She has been a YYFAP parent in our program for several years and has also worked with Ms. Angie and the Yachats Homeschool Group. Krissy Pankey was hired as the preschool assistant teacher. She has been a YYFAP parent for several years as well, and has worked as an assistant at Crestview Heights Elementary. We now have a full staff and look forward to an exciting school year!
