5000 pupils in Yelm Community Schools

Yelm Community Schools announced at the March 14, 2006 Chamber of Commerce Forum that they just enrolled their 5,000th pupil, which doubled their student numbers in 25 years. What they did not say is that student enrollments could double again in as little as 5 years with new housing developments approved by the Yelm City Council. [Ed. Note: You do the math; 1,800 new single family homes in Yelms City Limits to be built within 5 years & each with 2.1 students average = 3,600+ new students, plus the growth in school enrollments from the county outside of city limits, and Yelm could well have 10,000+ students within 5 years.
