What is the York PTSA?

York PTSA (Parent Teacher Student Association) is an independent, non-profit, volunteer-run organization and a part of the PTA umbrella that has supported our students through their time in Elmhurst District 205 public schools.  

 

PTSA at York promotes the welfare of all York students and the York community.  Following is a sample of what we do:

  • Initiated and maintain Post Prom, a substance-free, relatively low cost, safe activity for Prom attendees.
  • Initiated and maintain a Best-Sellers shelf in the York library.
  • Sponsor National Honor Society receptions for all students initiated in this group.
  • Publish an annual student directory.
  • Sponsor a dinner for staff before the annual Open House.
  • Sponsor a Teachers Appreciation Breakfast.
  • Contribute funds to multiple student clubs and organizations.
  • Promote communication through the e-newsletter.
  • Advocate for and support activities that encourage a robust academic environment at York.
  • Support and contribute to a scholarship fund for York Seniors maintained by Elmhurst Council of PTA's
  • Support and contribute to a scholarship fund for Illinois Seniors maintained by Illinois PTA.
