NYOS Charter School

Elementary Principal's Corner

Summer 2017


Dear NYOS Families,


It’s hard to believe another school year has come to an end. With the support of our terrific teachers and staff, students have worked hard to achieve their goals. We celebrate our fifth grade students who are looking forward with great anticipation to entering Middle School, and give special recognition to our graduating Seniors. Congratulations Class of 2017! We celebrate your success and wish you all the best!

Over the summer months the NYOS Boys & Girls Club will be held at the Kramer campus. If you would like more information about participating in this opportunity, please contact Jayme Johnson at jayme.johnson@bgcaustin.org. The camp begins on June 6th and will include daily breakfast, lunch, and weekly field trips are planned.

You are also cordially invited to lend a hand with caring for our Kramer garden over the summer months. It is blooming and producing delicious vegetables thanks to the leadership of volunteer Leslie White and many other NYOS community members. We would like to give a special shout out of appreciation to Whittlesey’s Landscape Supplies for their recent very generous donation of mulch. The plants seem to love it! While there, don’t miss the new mural that has been added to our playground area. Here’s a sneak peek:

With endings come new beginnings. The 2017-2018 school year will begin on July 20th with Elementary Meet the Teacher morning from 7:30-9:00 a.m. at both campuses. Please mark your calendars as we all look forward to seeing students after the summer break—especially our new Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Please plan to bring your child’s school supplies so all is ready for the first day of school on Tuesday, July 25th. There will be opportunities to join the NYOS PTA, participate in the uniform exchange, greet old friends, and meet new ones. I look forward to seeing you there!


Wishing you a healthy, restful, fun summer break!
