It’s hard to believe a month has passed by so quickly! We have much to celebrate and feel proud of as we start progressing towards the fall. A great place to see pictures and videos of our students and staff is on the York Twitter Page @YorkD205. I also plan to share student testimonials and successes in athletics, activities, and academics throughout the year in this newsletter.

Happy Homecoming Week, Duke Families. Another marker of the year is upon us--Parent Teacher Conferences--and before we open the conference signup portal at 6:00am on Thursday, September 19th, we wanted to send out instructions to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to have their account ready to go. Below are links to resources to help you as you prepare to sign up with your student's teachers. We look forward to seeing everyone for Parent-Teacher Conferences in October.
