  • Bulldog Sports Round-up

    Boys soccer beats Greenview The YSHS boys soccer team beat the Greeneview Rams 3–2 on the road Saturday, Oct. 10. After a lackluster first half, the Bulldogs were fortunate to only be trailing the Rams 1–0, and soon enough, Greeneview was up 2–0 before Yellow Springs finally started to click.

  • New dean, home room at YSHS

    Julie Speelman is the new dean of students and athletic diretor at YSHS and McKinney Middle School.

    When students arrive for their first day back to Yellow Springs High School and McKinney Middle School on Wednesday, Aug. 26, the first thing they will notice is a spritely young woman they don’t recognize greeting them at the door.

    Yellow Springs High School cross country team members Reini Brickman, left, Lois Miller and Paloma Wiggins have organized “Simply Women,” a 5k run/walk for women and girls to take place on Saturday, Aug. 8, at the high school. The event aims to raise funds for the girls cross country team and to raise awareness about the importance of girls participating in sports.

On the walls were maps of constellations, renderings of virtual landscapes and examples of graphic design.
