Yosemite Institute Information Night for all 7th & 8th Grade Families, Next Wednesday
Wednesday, November 18 at 6:00 all 7th and 8th grade families will meet to learn about the outdoor education program at Yosemite Institute.
This meeting will set the tone and go over details to ensure a positive and successful week of outdoor education.
