Tuesday, May 28, 2013 marked the start of the first ever Year End Studies (YES) Session at Burlington High School. YES is two weeks of intensive, interest-driven programming that enhances enthusiasm for learning and strengthens relationships between BHS and the Burlington community.

YES is a teacher-driven initiative, conceived of and organized by BHS faculty members. The following teachers served on the YES committee and helped to bring the program to life: Gretchen Muller, Colby Skoglund, Allison Letourneau, Tom Obbagy, Josh Friedman, Beth Fialko, Molly Heath, Ed Owens, Jill Jacobelli, David Rome, Gayle Botelho, Lisa Sitek, and David Lamberti.   

Throughout the program, the Partnership for Change is helping to document the YES experience. Visit our facebook page for more pictures or follow us on twitter for daily updates.
