YES ACADEMY

This was a very exciting week for our juniors and seniors.  On Monday, we opened our Little Vikes Lab School.  We currently have eight students between the ages of 3 and 5.  Our seniors have designed the lesson plans for the 8 weeks of the school and are also in charge of the instruction.  Our juniors also get to work with our students, focusing more on child development aspects.

We have gotten off to a great start and are having a blast.  We couldn’t have asked for a better group of students.
