There's always something going on at YHS and staying on top of current events is an important part of every student's education. Visit this page regularly to read the latest news about students, teachers, and school activities.
Thanksgiving Holiday School Schedule
During the week of Thanksgiving, November 24 -28, there will be no school on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Classes resume on Monday, December 1.
Scholarship Information Night
Arizona Community Foundation has collaborated with area organizations, including the AWC Foundation, to host Scholarship Information Night at Cibola High School. Scholarship Information Night will take place on Wednesday, December 3 from 6:30-8:30p.m.
The goal of the event is to increase awareness of the numerous local scholarships available to students in the Yuma area. There will be local organizations with scholarship opportunities participating, and they will have tables set up in the cafeteria where students and parents can meet representatives, pick up information, and ask questions.
Winter Formal 2014
Yuma High School FBLA will host a winter formal for all Yuma County High School students. The theme this year is "A Night in New York” with musical entertainment by Satyr. Concessions will be available for purchase.
We do require formal attire. No denim, shorts, tennis shoes, flip flops, or extremely revealing attire.
The cost is $20 per ticket. Students can purchase tickets at their high school until December 5.
Cambridge Board Exams
This week students will begin signing up for the Cambridge board exams that take place in spring 2015. Sign-ups will be during math classes November 14 through November 25. Cambridge board exams are open to all Yuma High students enrolled in Cambridge courses. Taking the exams can benefit students in many ways including remediating low or failing course grades, measuring academic readiness, and/or fulfilling requirements for the Grand Canyon diploma.
In January, students interested in testing will bring home a letter that will allow you to verify your child’s availability for scheduled exam dates and his or her ability to participate. Please remember that students are able to take Cambridge exams free of charge. If your student does not show up for an exam then you will be required to pay for the exam. Please sign and return the January letter to Yuma High by January 16. We will not make changes to exam requests after that date.
If you have questions about Cambridge exams or would like to talk to someone about how the exams fit with earning a Grand Canyon diploma, please contact Michele Garlit at 928-502-5288.
