May 10 / 2019


Dear York School Community,

The Welcome Package has been sent to new families coming to The York School in September 2019. It’s a great reference guide for transitioning and returning families as well!

For New Families - Pick-up, drop-off? Uniforms? Textbooks? Curriculum?

From key dates to how to find out what’s on the lunch menu, this Welcome Package provides you with everything you need to know as you prepare for September and familiarize yourself and your child to The York School.

For Transitioning Families - JS-to-MS-to-SS

While already seasoned veterans to the York School schedule, you might have some questions on curriculum and process - or, for example, on which sports and co-curricular activities are available - as your child transitions from the Junior School to the Middle School, or from the Middle School to the Senior School.

For Returning Families - Refresher

As cultural ambassadors and champions for your children, your friendship and hospitality in extending a warm welcome and supporting new families is much appreciated. Thank you for sharing and telling them all about the great things happening in our community.

Community Service Awareness Week

Starting May 13th, 2019, the York School Community Service Club will proudly present a week of awareness-based activities designed to build a more inclusive world.  

The week will build an understanding of the life experiences of children and youth living with physical challenges as well as adults living with intellectual disabilities.

 At this year’s Spring Recognition Assembly the following will be presented: The York Award, Leadership Award, Fellowship Award, Dedication Award, Debating Award and the Athlete of the Year awards.
