Principal's Message


It is my pleasure to welcome you to Yamhill Carlton Elementary School!  YCES is committed to supporting our district vision of “championing the growth of our students.”   

Our YCES team works to ensure all students receive high-quality instruction within a data-driven system to support each child’s learning needs.  We also strive to address their social and emotional needs in a safe and engaging environment. 

This school year, in addition to supporting the District Strategic Plan, as a building, we will focus on the district motto of Small Schools, Big Achievements.

Working together as a team, we will ensure that every student has the opportunity to realize their full potential as confident, successful students.  Our staff looks forward to collaborating with you and your student as we lay the foundation in elementary school for the years to come.

It is truly an honor to be a part of such an amazing learning community. Welcome Back! It’s going to be an incredible year!!!!!!!
