Tips for a Successful School Year

  • Make sure your child gets a good nights rest (most Elementary-aged kids need 10-12 hours of sleep still!)
  • Have a set homework time and play time after school.
  • Pack lunches, bookbags, and pick out clothes the night before to help with the morning rush!
  • Meet your child's teacher! Find out the best way to contact the teacher and be sure to let them know the best way to contact you!
  • Get your child to school on time! It's amazing how quickly 5 minutes adds up every day! Did you know that if you are late by 5 minutes every day you'll miss a total of 15 hours of instructional time in the year?!
  • READ with your child. Just 20 minutes a day makes a HUGE difference.
  • Ask questions! Let us know if you have concerns, or questions throughout the year! We are here to help!

Mark Your Calendar!


  • October is Bullying Prevention and Awareness Month! Be on the look-out for more information in your child’s Tuesday folder about how we will raise awareness here at York!
  • We will be hosting our first Annual Career Fair on Friday, November 4th. If you are interested in sharing your career with our students, please contact Mrs. Spencer for more information.
  • Upcoming Character Traits: September = Self-Discipline, October = Respect, November = Integrity

Backpack Buddies Needs Your Help!

York Elementary School is raising funds to sponsor 16 students to receive BackPack Buddies this school year! BackPack Buddies provides food over the weekends for children who normally eat breakfast and lunch at school. Each bag contains enough food for six nutritious meals. It's hard to learn, follow directions and get along with your classmates if you're hungry. That's why if even one child is hungry it can effect the entire class. To sponsor a student at York for a school year's worth of BackPack Buddies food is $350, a month is $35 and to it's $10 to feed a child for a weekend. Please donate what you can. Any amount is helpful. Please visit the following link to donate.
