1st day of schoolThe first day of school is Tuesday, September 2nd!  We’re so excited see everyone!

Classes are 9:20 to 3:35 this school year. Children should arrive no earlier than 8:50.

Students driven to school must be dropped off in the front circle only.  ALL students must enter through the front door.  5th grade students are NOT permitted to be dropped off in back by the learning cottages. (Mobile units).

Remember everyone picking up students from school must have an ID.  If you missed orientation, please fill out the PINK Sign Out Permission form and return it to school as soon as possible – we wouldn’t want you to do it twice!

Keep an eye out for school buses and children moving to and from the buses and bus stops in the morning and the afternoon. We want to keep all of our students safe. Lets make it a great start to a new school year!

Welcome Back Chargers!

I am looking forward to a successful year of learning and growth for every student.
Don’t Worry!! You’re in good hands. I am an experienced teacher, a veteran of the U. S. armed forces, a father of four daughters, and “Poppy” of three grandchildren.

Following a 20-year Navy career in broadcast journalism, I returned to the college classroom at Norfolk State University to earn my bachelors degree in 1994. Then, under the Troops to Teachers graduate program, I earned my masters degree from Old Dominion University in Middle Grades Education. I have been licensed professionally since the summer of 1995. Before joining the staff at John Yeates Middle School in 1998, I taught middle school in Isle of Wight County and Surry County.

We will be communicating with each other a lot this school year. In addition to this blog, I use REMIND to keep you informed of what’s happening in class. By joining REMIND, you will receive messages via push notifications, SMS, or email. My home phone is 757-619-1025. My email is richardyanku@spsk12.net.

My #1 school rule: Come on-time and “prepared” every day. Let’s get this school year started!
