As we head into the end of January, it is important to reflect on all we should be grateful for. I’m extremely grateful for my hard-working staff and my incredible students. As a school, we take great pride in our many accomplishments and consistently seek ways in which we can improve. To that end, I want to reiterate the importance of treating our school with pride and respect. Last week, I sent a message home detailing recent incidents of vandalism and the approach our staff is taking to address them.

Designed for parents of sophomores and juniors (but open to all York parents), this highly regarded event includes round-table discussions led by fellow York parents who will share their valuable experience and knowledge about the college application process as well as other post high school plans. Visit the PTSA Academic Boosters website for more information. Event sponsored by the PTSA Academic Boosters and the York CCRC.

The York Athletic Boosters will hold its Annual Green Scene Fundraiser on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at Fitz's Spare Keys in downtown Elmhurst from 7:00 pm to Midnight. Join us on this fun, casual night for bowling with the York coaches, open pool, silent auction, 50/50 raffle, light buffet and cash bar.

We wanted to take a moment to walk through the criteria for seniors to be exempt from their second semester final exams, and while we know that seniors are aware of the new procedure, we wanted to be sure that families were officially aware of this change to assure that our seniors kick off second semester on the right foot.

Students will be taking the 5 Essentials Survey between 1st and 2nd period.  Students will report to their 2nd period class for the survey. The Survey will take about 20 mins with 5 minutes for instruction.  Each class period will be 48 minutes long with a 5min passing period and there will be no YTV announcements.
