Happy Yu Ming Day! In the Fall of 2019, Yu Ming received the National Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Dept of Education because of our students' excellent results. In honor of this achievement, then-Oakland Mayor Libby Shaaf decreed Nov 18, 2019 as Yu Ming Day!

Since then, every mid-November, we celebrate our students who continue to learn and grow as empathetic members of our community, and our staff who make this learning and growth possible by supporting and engaging our scholars with dedication and care every day.

This year, students got to enjoy bubbles and music during recess and received a Yu Ming T-shirt!
