Welcome to the York PTSA

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.  


The York PTSA hopes that you plan to join our membership as well as participate in some of our events this school year.  


It is never too late to, complete your 2017-2018 PTSA Membership enrollment and reserve your copy of the PTSA Directory.  New this year, your PTSA Membership now includes access to an online copy of our valuable Student and Staff Directory!


We look forward to seeing our returning members and meeting new ones!



Reflections Art Program: Within Reach

There are many ways for students to express themselves with the Reflections Art Program. Students can enter projects in dance, visual arts, creative writing, music, photography or film making. All pieces need to reflect on this year’s theme: Within Reach.


Your student's project could be displayed at the Elmhurst Art Museum in 2018, and there will be recognition for select projects at the district, regional, state and national levels.


Works of art are due to the York office by Monday, November 13. Please contact Michelle Albers for more information.


This year the York PTSA 2017-2018 Directory is available electronically for the first time.  Your Adult Membership now includes access to the online directory.  Once you've completed your membership, you will receive an email from DirectorySpot inviting you to download the directory app and create an account.


The online directory is being made available to all York families until September 30. 2017.  After that date, you will need a York PTSA adult membership to access this valuable tool.  More information about the online directory is available on our Directory page.  


The data in our online directory comes directly from your InfoSnap information when you enrolled your student(s).  If you selected "Include in PTA Directory" your information will appear in both our paper and electronic directory.


If you need any updates to your information appearing in the online directory, please let us know here.  


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.

Please join us at a meeting
