     FRIENDS OF YORK BASEBALL

In the Spring of 2017, a group of York parents in cooperation with York and District Adminstrators, partnered with the Foundation to raise funds that will help improve the York High School varsity baseball field. Several additions and improvements totalling approximately $35,000 are planned, beginning with the purchase and installation of one hundred forty-four new stadium seats at a cost of approximately $22,000.

    YORK DISTINGUISHED  ALUMNI PROGRAM & YORK ALUMNI ASSOCIATION

The York Distinguished Alumni Program (YDAP) serves to recognize and honor alumni who                                               have distinguished themselves through significant and/or extraordinary accomplishments,                                                 service and/or an outstanding contribution to society. Launched in partnership by the                                                       Foundation, the District Communications & Alumni Relations Dept, and York High School in                                                 2013, YDAP has honored twenty-three outstanding individuals to date as Dukes of Distinction.                                         After induction in a public ceremony held at York High School, these alumni spend the                                                     following day in a well orchestrated visit to York interacting with and inspiring students. It is                                             our hope that this program will be the first step to the formation of an Alumni                                                                  Association and a successful alumni mentoring program. This program is almost entirely                                                   privately funded, and can only persist with community support.

The newly formed York Community High School Alumni Association (YCHSAA) was created as a vehicle to foster communication and camaraderie among its alumni and to serve and support them, the  school and it’s students. Membership is  free, therefore, donations will be used to cover start-up costs, marketing and events.

York Student Enrichment Team

YSET

In an effort to proactively offset the combined effects of a down-turned economic environment and necessary fee increases for York students and families in 2011, a group of parent volunteers, students, faculty and York Administration formed the York Student Enrichment Team (YSET).

 

The short-term project provided assistance to ensure that students with demonstrated need would be able to pay for school fees for elective classes, AP exams and field trips. The program also assisted with fees for extra curricular clubs and athletics, as well as key high school experiences, such as Homecoming and Prom for seniors.

 

Fortunately, the need for this assistance has dramatically decreased and the York Student Enrichment Team has agreed that the close of the 2016/17 academic year is a good time for the project and partnership with the Foundation to conclude.

 

The plan is for the cause to take on a new form and process so that York students can continue to help their peers. The Team, with support from generous donors, has raised over $205,000 which has enhanced opportunities for all students to have a fuller York experience. Families and students who continue to require assistance should contact York Student Services.
