Last week of school - June 11 -15,  2018

To celebrate the academic school year, students can expect the following last few days of fun in the middle school. Please note early dismissal times* and dress.  Homeroom teachers will provide instructions and reminders to the students as these days approach.

Venturing out forms for field trips will be out shortly.


Class Parent Recruitment for 2018-19

We are ideally looking for 2 parents per class (4 per grade) to act as a liaison with the school for various roles and events.  For example, class parents perform a key role in helping to organize class parties, treats for teachers and parent socials. Class parents will also liaise with the administration on any issues presenting to their grade. While we welcome the involvement of all parents, our goal is to identify 2-4 parents per grade to consistently liaise with the administration.

If you are interested in becoming a class parent, please fill this form and if you have questions about the role please email ddsa@yorkschool.com. The school will be in touch with you in June.

Wishing all moms a Happy Mother’s day!
