Support York Scholarships

Last year the York Senior Scholarship program sponsored by the D205 PTA Council was able to award 13 $1,000 scholarships to graduating seniors going on to college; including junior college and trade schools!  Help us continue that tradition of making these awards and help us reach our goal of 15 scholarships this year!  

Make your holiday card and gift purchases count this year by shopping at Minted using PTA Council's unique code (Fundraised205PTA) at checkout. You’ll get a 20% discount and Minted will donate 15% of your purchase back to YORK SENIOR SCHOLARSHIPS at the end of the year.

Thank you so much for your support!

Q&A with York Principal

Missed the last York PTSA Connections meeting? Dr. Shahe Bagdasarian discussed the high school academic curriculum for the current school year, including changes with high school administration this year. He then addressed questions from parents that ranged from grading policies to instructional learning through videos used in the “flipped classroom” approach and more.

Watch the full session here.
