Dear York School Community,

Earlier this week the YPA sent out a ‘SAVE-THE-DATES’ note highlighting a series of fun events in the pipeline for York families.

For the Junior School this includes the anticipated Grandpals & Special Friends Day.

We want to clarify that this event is for solely for JK - Grade 2

It will start with an assembly in the Gymnasium followed by a celebration of learning in homerooms.
Date: Friday, April 26
Time: 8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
Location:  Junior School (1639 Yonge Street)


As the days get longer, our children are itching more and more to go outside to play! Visit for all the latest updates on our Junior School Playground planning. We are well over halfway towards our goal!
Please contact Michelle Golfman at if you would like to learn more!


As we now approach our final term at the Junior School, we would like to remind all parents of our parking and driving expectations. Note there is no parking between the school and the corner of Glen Elm - when parents park there it both upsets our neighbours and creates a dangerous situation for both pedestrians and drivers.

As a refresher, please refer to our Drop Off procedures and Pick Up map:

We will be hosting our first International Week on Monday, April 15th to Thursday, April 18th. There will be a Parade of Nations in the Junior School and a Casual Day in the Middle and Senior School where students are invited to wear the traditional dress or flag colours of their home country or their family’s country of origin. Take advantage of your March break trips to different countries to assemble clothing, jewelry, accessories, flags or cultural items so that we are prepared for this week of celebration.

In preparation for our Parade of Nations can you please fill out this FORM so we know what country signs the students will need to make.

More details will be provided after the break. We look forward to celebrating with everyone.
