and Head Start
Head Start at YHS has been "Staying in the lines" with Project Ignition. All of the students in Head Start entered the "Stay in the Lines" coloring competition sponsored by Project Ignition, which consists of a group of juniors trying to make a difference with distracted driving. Every student was a winner with some fantastic car colorings. Each student won a stencil and a pencil to help them continue to stay in the lines. The pictures were hung at eye level for the students to view their handiwork and see they are all winners.
