Students Making A Difference: ️ πŸ“£Shoutout to the Young Men of Youree and Beta Club who tackled the trash this week with their "Team Up to Clean Up" initiative! πŸ§ΉπŸ—‘οΈ They hit the T-buildings and hardcourt areas, filling bags and leaving our school sparkling!✨ Not only did they clean up, but they're also making a commitment to keeping Youree litter-free all year long!

Get ready for a heartwarming dose of holiday spirit! Our amazing National Junior Honors Society, led by President Kambria Clark and Vice President Miles Herndon, spearheaded a school-wide toy drive that brought mountains of Christmas cheer to Roy's Kids! Students at YDMS truly pitched in this holiday season, transforming the school into a festive gift-giving haven.βœ¨πŸŽπŸŽ„ But the giving didn't stop there! Principal Maria Edwards presented Mike Powell, the founder of Roy's Kids, a $2,000 donation from the school to the charity. This donation will put even more gifts under the tree for the children that Roy's Kids serves. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ It brings us great pride to see our students helping those in need this holiday season. #YoureeDriveNJHS #RoysKids #GivingBack #HolidayCheer

Together, we collected an astounding 2,000+ items, weighing in at 1,874 pounds of nourishment for those in need. A standing ovation to the sixth grade class for securing the coveted canned food drive grade level competition, and a special shoutout to Mrs. Harper's homeroom for championing the collection with the most cans. Big thanks to 4-H for sponsoring this impactful event. We exceeded our goal of 500 items by leaps and bounds!
