Welcome from the York PTSA!

A warm welcome to all new students at York this year, and a hearty welcome back to all of our returning students.

Planning is moving forward for the Senior Picnic scheduled for May 18th. Parents of seniors, please watch your inboxes for a letter and Sign-Up Genius links for donations and volunteers. 


We are still looking for volunteers to chair a few committees: 

  • Raffle Chairs (2) - Jill and Beth will request and collect donations. Raffle Chairs will help organize prizes and supervise distribution on the day of the picnic.
  • Games Chair - Inflatables and games will be set-up by the amusement company on the day of the picnic. The Games Chair will work with volunteer parents to supervise games.
  • Clean-up Chair - After the event, this chair will work with volunteers, school staff, and amusement company to facilitate take-down.

We are also looking for parents of juniors who might be interested in running the picnic for the class of 2019. If you are interested in chairing a committee or are the parent of a junior who would like to help, please contact Jill Riecker or Beth Bingham.

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.
