What is a "coupler"? Are you one? Can you be one for CYES?

A "coupler" is a special metal piece used to connect train cars together. At CYES, we are the STEAM engines and we NEED YOU to be the COUPLERS! We need parents, relatives, community members, and students to help us stay CONNECTED! It's easy! Join the Advisory Council! The Advisory Council works on YOUR behalf to provide valuable input to the school administration. It is your opportunity to have a voice, make suggestions, receive answers to questions, bring community concerns to the attention of the administration. The Advisory Council meets once a month in conjunction with the PTO. The joint meetings start at 6:30p and are held on the third Tuesday of each month. All it takes is ONE HOUR to become involve and help your school community. Contact the Advisory Council directly if you have any questions or are interested in joining!
