YEMS debate team has been stellar since the school's inception, starting with the leadership of Mr. Finkler and now at the helm of Ms. Byrne. The students have really come together as a strong team to not only support one another, but to excel and become the top middle school debaters in the NYUDL! Four of our Open Public Forum debaters placed, not only in the top 10 individual speakers for the whole year, but three of them, hold the top three spots: Alex O. was first place speaker for the year, Vivian Y. was the second place speaker, Timmy J. was the third place speaker and Cameron C. was the sixth place speaker. During the year, all of our teams, both novice and open, placed in the top 10 teams in every monthly debate, and several times the teams and speakers placed first through third place, including Sadie W. who brought home first place honors for the novice division.
The team just returned from the National Speech and Debate Tournament, where Alex O. and
Timmy J. were octo-finalists. As a team, they were one of the top 8 in the country, and were the only New York team to break into double octo-finals. Congratulations!

Sugar/Snack Policy: As a reminder, our new “Sugar and Snack Policy” is in effect. Sugary foods such as candy and soda are no longer allowed during school breakfast and snack. Students are encouraged to eat a healthful breakfast so they remain focused and energized throughout the school day. To support our students, we have instituted a snack time during the first 10 minutes of 3rd period each day. It is the student’s choice to bring snack, as the school will not be providing one. Thank you for your support in creating a healthy Yorkville East community!

YEMS iS READING...
6th Grade Summer Reading
"After sixth grade, the very worst year of his life, Rafe Khatchadorian thinks he has it made in seventh grade. He's been accepted to art school in the big city and imagines a math-and-history-free fun zone. Wrong! It's more competitive than Rafe ever expected, and to score big in class, he needs to find a way to turn his boring life into the inspiration for a work of art. His method? Operation: Get a Life! Anything he's never done before, he's going to do it, from learning to play poker to going to a modern art museum. But when his newest mission uncovers secrets about the family Rafe's never known, he has to decide if he's ready to have his world turned upside down."
