IB EXHIBITION ACTION - LEGO DRIVE FOR AUTISM

Hi! My name is P. Mousavifar and I am in Grade 5. For my exhibition project, I have been learning a lot about children living with autism.

I am having a LEGO donation drive because I have been learning that LEGO is a good form of therapy used with children living with autism. From Monday May 13th to Thursday May 16th there will be a labeled box in the Gathering Place where you can put your donated LEGO. I will take the donated LEGO and give it to a school called Shining Through, a school for children with autism.

Thank you very much for helping me with my exhibition project.

WELCOME PACKAGE SENT OUT TO NEW FAMILIES

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.

Have you seen the VR video rendering of our new Junior School Playground? Come see what the children will be playing on in September 2019!

The York School’s $1.5 million playground will be home to our 250 Junior School students throughout the school day for Recess, Outdoor Learning and After-School practices!

A BIG THANK YOU to our faculty, students and parents who have provided valuable input along the way.

With opportunities to play, learn and take risk - The York School’s Playground promises to be an extension of the classroom. Through your generous support, our Architects have designed a Playground that our children will absolutely love, and many of you have been instrumental in helping raise $ 1,025,000 so far. Thank you. Only a final $ 475,000 left to go!

Help support the creation of a new innovative, multi-functional playground. To get involved, please contact advancement@yorkschool.com
