On Monday, May 3rd, York High School celebrated Duke Decision Day. We want to congratulate all seniors who have been accepted or made their decisions for next year. Seniors who still want to add their name to the map can come down to the CCRC through the end of the week. The CCRC also has “Class of 2021” Yard Signs, please come pick one up as soon as possible. Typically, over 95% of our graduating seniors choose some type of additional schooling/training with the remaining 5% enlisting in military service, choosing to work, or taking a gap year. Congrats again to all seniors!
Interested in joining the defending Regional Champs of IHSA Scholastic Bowl? Then please attend a meeting in A333, Ms. Wall's room, after school on May 10th. We'll review our successful season, strategize for next year, and work in some time on the buzzers. No experience is necessary to join this fast knowledge game!
