Principal's Message


    Emily Lech


    My name is Emily Lech. I’m honored to be the principal of Yorkville Grade School. Previously, I was an assistant principal for four years and taught 10 years prior to administration. 

    As a parent of three young children, I understand the extraordinary trust you put into the school’s hands each day. Your child’s safety, social, emotional, and academic well-being are my utmost priorities. 

    Yorkville Grade School serves  approximately 275 early childhood through third grade students. We have a fabulous PTO and welcome you to join our events. We are here to connect regularly about the goals you have for your child. Always feel at ease to call, email, or set up a time to meet with me or your child's teacher. Our partnership is important and valuable. Follow learning adventures by liking "Yorkville Grade School" on Facebook. You can also find us on twitter: @emily_lech.

    I am excited to share an article I wrote about YGS & Y115 which was published on Edutopia: A platform dedicated to helping transform K-12 education. The article is focused on our mission to grow happy readers by making books matter most.  You can read our simple yet important strategies HERE.

    As your child grows in wondrous ways, this quote rings true, "Enjoy the little things in life. One day you'll look back and realize they were the big things."
