Dear Yolo families, 

Welcome back to another exciting school year at Yolo Middle school! We hope you had a restful and enjoyable summer break. We welcome both our returning students and those joining our panther community for the first time.

The start of a new school year is a time filled with anticipation, opportunities, and possibilities. It is a time for us to come together as a family to nurture the growth of each individual student and promote a strong sense of community within our school. This year, we are committed to promoting growth, learning, and development in every aspect of our students' lives.

Growth is a central theme here at Yolo. We believe that every student has the potential to achieve success, and we are dedicated to providing an environment that encourages personal, academic, and social growth. Our teachers and staff are passionate about guiding each student along their unique journey, helping them discover their strengths, overcome challenges, and reach personal goals. 

At Yolo, we value the power of a supportive school community. We believe that education is a partnership between the school, families, and students. Together, we can empower our students and help them thrive. Through open communication, involvement in school events, and engagement in extracurricular activities, we encourage families to actively participate in their child's education and become a part of our Panther Proud culture.

This year, we have an exciting lineup of activities and learning opportunities planned for our students. From engaging classroom experiences to inspiring guest speakers, from creative arts to our exciting athletics, there is something for every student to look forward to. 

As we continue this journey of growth and learning, let us remember that every day is a chance to discover new abilities, make lasting friendships, and contribute to our Panther Proud culture. Together, we will celebrate achievements, support one another during challenges, and create a safe and nurturing environment that empowers each student to shine.

We look forward to a fantastic year ahead. Welcome back to Yolo Middle School! – where we grow together, learn together, and thrive together. 

With Panther Pride,
