Something that makes YLMS a Gold Medal School and a Schools to Watch School is our intervention program we call B3. It stands for “Build a Better Bobcat”. Let me explain. B3 is a scheduled time each Wednesday. Students are assigned to a teacher and report for attendance. During this time, a variety of activities may take place. Students have the opportunity to make up work or tests, participate in enrichment activities or small group tutoring, and be involved in character education discussions. Students may make up any ‘mile runs’ they have missed as well. It’s a time for both academic and social growth, to regroup, to get ahead on homework, or discover a passion. Chromebooks are available on a rotating schedule and this gives students the opportunity to monitor their grades and work completion. The next time you’re discussing school, rather than ask “How was school today?” ask “describe B3; tell me what you and the class did during the time?”

Our teachers met and worked very hard to develop a program that supports the diverse needs of students, makes good use of time, and increases student success. Just one of the many reasons YLMS is a great place to spend my day!
