All parents/guardians welcome! Join us to discuss events, learn about our budget, meet other parents and share ideas!  Also, we will nominate and elect the 2 at-large positions on the PTA Executive Board. These are reserved for parents new to YCS who were not yet at the school during last school year’s election. To learn more, read about Members At Large in our By-Laws 

Ways to get Involved at YCS

Working with the PTA is a great way to learn more about how the school works and meet other YCS parents and families. We have a broad variety of volunteering opportunities, from helping with the weekly popcorn Friday, to coordinating elements of our major events, to being a class parent in your child’s classroom. Our school community is successful because of the many parents who show up and give their time, energy and resources to build an incredible learning environment for our children.

People interested in serving as a class parent should contact amanda.wells@yorkvillecommunityschool.org and nancymark@yorkvillecommunityschool.org.

People interested in volunteering as a librarian should email ycslibrary151@gmail.com.

To learn more about open positions and other volunteer opportunities please email us at pta@yorkvillecommunityschool.org.

Parent’s Night Out – 9/27

Join us for the year’s first parent night out! It is a fun way to meet other parents, catch up, and chat over drinks and snacks. This is an adult only event at a local bar. Details to follow later this week

Family Fridays for K,1 and 2, Sept. 29th, 8:40-9:25 a.m.

Come to your child’s classroom to find out what they are learning and how you can support them at home.
