Your amazing support allows York PTSA to organize and/or help fund programs and events such as the following:

  • Significant monetary support, as well as help securing chaperones, for York’s Post Prom event on the Odyssey, which is a substance-free, relatively low cost, safe activity for Prom attendees (most prom-goers attend and have a great time!)
  • Both the Freshman Picnic and the Senior Picnic
  • Fine Arts Week
  • Young Hearts for Life (free EKGs for students every other year)
  • National Honor Society reception for all students initiated into the group
  • The annual student directory (Directory Spot app)
