Students entering Grades 6-10 must purchase textbooks for the new school year. If you have not done so, please visit here for the textbook store and complete your order as soon as possible.

If you have any questions regarding ordering online, please contact Canadian School Book Exchange at 1-800-335-5043.

Through generous donations by parents to The York School Fund, some Grade 11 and 12 textbooks will be made freely available in digital format. The e-textbooks take the heavy lifting out of learning through a free subscription to Kognity, an interactive platform for students and teachers to get the most out of class.

Class Parent Recruitment for 2018 / 19

**Thank you for your enthusiastic responses to signing up for the Class Parent role after our call for volunteers at the end of the school year. We are still looking to fill a few spots left, so if you are still interested in getting more involved with your child's classroom, we'd love to have you on board! Sign-up details below. **

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
