Dear York School Community,

This communication is from the Governance Committee of The York School Board of Directors to inform you of some changes in the leadership of the York School Board of Directors as we enter 2019.

Steve Yuzpe will be stepping down from the Board of Directors and his position as Chair of the Board. On behalf of the York School Community we thank Steve for his many years of service to the Board and school. Steve joined the Board in 2012 and in 2015 stepped in to fill the role of Chair when former Chair Tim Thorsteinson resigned for health reasons. Steve took on the responsibility of seeing through to completion the renovation project for the 1320 campus, which was then underway. The renovation project has now officially closed, the fundraising initiatives to support the project were successful, the school is operating well, and is in great fiscal health.  Steve steps down knowing he answered the call and supported the school when needed most.

Julie Di Lorenzo & Ken Rotman will be stepping in to Co-Chair the Board. Krista Hill will take on the position of Vice-Chair. We thank Ken, Julie, and Krista for their service and commitment to the school in taking on these positions.  For a complete list the Board of Directors and their Bio’s please visit our Governance page..

Governance Committee Chair Head of School

Dear York School Community,

Two weeks ago we announced that - through the great work of The Playground Committee - we had chosen IBI as our design partner to help us build the new Junior School Playground.

In that note we promised to follow up with a note inviting you to join us for RECESS! where we would share design ideas and seek input.

The date for RECESS! is January 25 at the Junior School from 8:45 - 10:00.

We’re looking to the community for support, so if you have any questions, or would like to participate in the ‘Junior School Playground journey’ to help realize the best space possible for our children, please contact Praveen Muruganandan, Director of Admission and Advancement at 416 926 1325 X 1129 or via e-mail pmuruganandan@yorkschool.com .
