Re-Enrolment Contracts are due by February 8, 2019. Please remember to complete the contract and payment by next Friday. Due to the increase in applications this year from JK-12, we are unable to reserve spaces past this day.


At the York School, we value being well, especially during the colder months. In February, the school will be highlighting the importance of being well and balanced. There will be a week of activities planned. More details will be shared with students in homeroom. As well, there will be a sleep-in on Wednesday, February 13th during Wellness Week. Classes will start at 9:45 am. Middle School students who need early morning supervision can work still arrive at their normal time and work in the Learning Commons.

SAVE THE DATE - PERSONAL PROJECT SHOWCASE

MYP PERSONAL PROJECT CELEBRATION SHOWCASE - FEBRUARY 13 from 6:00 - 7:00 in Cafe

(Before the Challenge Week Information Sessions)

Grade 10 Parents, thank you for supporting your children during the significant learning journey of the Personal Project. We would like you to come and celebrate the range of projects our students have taken part in and to hear how they have grown as learners through this challenging process. Students have created celebration display boards and will be on hand to showcase their products and to share insights they have gained through their research, exploration and project report.

Grade 9 Parents, please come to the showcase to see what the culminating MYP Personal Project looks like when it is done. You will talk to grade 10 students to learn about their experiences in the project, and get some idea of the scope of the kinds of products and outcome the students generated this year.

CHALLENGE WEEK - Parents Info Night - February 13th

Hello Parents,
You are all invited to attend the Senior School Challenge Week Parent Information Evening on Wednesday, February 13th from 7:00 - 8:00 pm at 1320 Yonge Street. Teachers and trip providers of the overnight excursions will be there to share details about preparation, activities, safety, transportation, and forms for your child's upcoming Challenge Week experience.

The information shared during this evening is important to the understanding of your child's excursion and there will be an opportunity to ask questions. For those parents that are unable to attend due to a conflict, information will be shared after the event.

We ask that you RSVP below by Thursday, February 7, 2019.  If you have more than one child participating in Challenge Week, please complete an RSVP for each child's trip.



ATHLETE INSTITUTE - NEXT SESSIONS

Our next sessions for the Athlete Institute will be for High Performance basketball led by NBA and International Shooting/Skills Development Coach, David Nurse. This is a great opportunity to come and learn and develop your basketball skills.If you partake in The York Basketball community you should sign up for at least 1 of these sessions that are being offered. Sessions are scheduled for Friday, March 29th to Sunday March 31st. You can sign up using the google form by clicking here.


PARENT GARAGE ACCESS AT 1320 YONGE

For purposes of security, safety, and convenience, we have installed keypad garage access for parents coming to the school to collect their children from after school activities (meetings, sports, tutoring, community etc.)

How to access garage:

The keypad is situated on the laneway podium at the entrance of the garage.
Use first 5 digits of your child’s student ID code (not the 0 at the end) followed by B.

This keypad activation is scheduled daily from 4:00 PM to 6:30 PM and for select events as needed (the upcoming Middle School Games Night for example).

After parking, do not walk on the ramp, but instead use the pedestrian entrance adjacent to the garage door. This will lead you out to the laneway sidewalk so you can access the school the usual way through the front door.

We’d like to remind you that parking is limited with no guarantee of a spot, and ask that you respectfully use the parking only for The York School business.
