Welcome to William Yates Elementary

  • The mission of the William Yates Elementary School

     Empowered children today, powerful leaders tomorrow." 

    The Leader In Me 
    The Leader in Me is an innovative, school-wide model that emphasizes a culture of student empowerment and helps unleash each child’s full potential. Applying The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, teachers and students internalize timeless leadership principals that nurture the skills students need for success in the 21st century.


  • We want to celebrate all the awesome reading you do at home!

    While reading EVERY NIGHT with your William Yates student, snap a picture of them in their favorite reading spot!

    • Maybe you’ll take a picture on a vacation at the beach, lake, or mountains. Maybe you’ll take your picture at a park, in your backyard, or in your bed.  Reading takes you on an adventure, no matter where you are. Email it to williamyateselem@gmail.com
    • Pictures will be displayed in the hallway based on the student’s grade level for NEXT YEAR! What an exciting way to look forward to moving up grade levels!
