OCTOBER 12 / 2018


Device-Free Day

After last year’s successful ‘Device-Free Day’, the Middle and Senior Schools have decided to once again take on the challenge of living without our electronic devices - cell phones and computers - next Tuesday, October 16th.  Plans are underway for fun low-tech activities in class, as well as a coffee house at lunch time.

Parents are asked not to text or send an email to their child on this day.  Be old fashioned: think ahead and remind them as they are walking out the door!

Take Our Kids to Work Day

Wednesday November 14th - All grade 9 students.

Take Our Kids to Work Day, is an annual career exploration event,  taking place on Wednesday, November 14th, 2018. Students in Grade 9 will spend the day in the workplace of a parent, relative, friend or volunteer host, where they can experience and learn about the world of work.  This event also gives parents the opportunity to discuss career prospects with their children, and allows businesses to share knowledge, experience and advice around education, career choices and relevant skills required in today’s workplace.  

Parents of grade 9 students must be sure to submit the online Take Our Kids to Work Day form to give their consent for their child to participate in this event. This form is available on YorkNet  and should be completed by November 7th.

Please note that there will be no grade 9 classes or programming in session on November 14th at The York School. It is our goal that our students will join the other 250, 000 young people across the country and take full advantage of this unique opportunity.
