  • New Zaepfel Scoreboard Has Received Permitting from the City of Yakima!

    With full funding from Gesa Credit Union, the Yakima community plus visitors to Zaepfel Stadium at 40th Ave and Tieton Drive will soon see a new scoreboard.

    The City of Yakima and the Yakima School District have been productively engaged in cooperative work to advance the installation of the new display.  The City of Yakima officially issued the permit to the Yakima School District today (2-7-20).

    The next steps include sign production by Daktronics and sign installation.  An installation schedule is not yet available but YSD is hopeful it can take place over the summer of 2020.

    The existing scoreboard, although renovated by Pepsi throughout the years, has been in place since 1969. The new sign is larger in size, more modern in presentation, and includes video playback.  The technology included with the new sign provides opportunities for classroom learning in video production for students at Davis and Eisenhower High Schools and Stanton Academy.

    Gesa Credit Union is covering 100% of the cost of the sign and the sign installation.

YSD Stories

  • YSD Girls Inspired to Explore STEM During Visit to Microsoft

    Posted by Manuel Rodriguez on 10/11/2018

    Technologchicas GameOn

    Students from Franklin and Washington Middle Schools (WMS) visited Microsoft on October 5, to attend a Nuevo Foundation workshop focused on encouraging female students to consider careers in STEM fields.  The 22 girls, who are also part of Central Washington University’s Game On! program, engaged in hands-on activities, connected with STEM professionals from Microsoft, Google, NASA, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology, and toured the Microsoft campus.  The impact of this experience on the students was immediate. “I wanted to be a nurse, but now I want to work for NASA because one of the ladies inspired me to be an engineer.  I think it’s fascinating because you design things to go on the NASA spaceship,” WMS seventh-grader Dayana Abundiz said.

    CWU Game On! is a free program for middle-- and high school students that educates them about core values, leadership, social and digital literacy, and college-ready skills by using computer and soccer training. The free program is made available through a partnership with the Yakima School District, the Real Madrid Foundation, Microsoft, and Central Washington University.
