YSEF Grants for East York
Minimize

YSEF recently released the approved 2017 grants, two of which directly benefit East York students.

 

A grant of $1,549.34 will allow the third graders at East York Elementary to participate in experiential learning opportunities in science and mathematics through the purchase of portable greenhouses.  As these students are applying their content learning by “getting dirty” growing their own seedlings, they will also engage their community by marketing and selling the plants they grow at the annual East York May Day.  The greenhouses will also be utilized by East York’s newly created Envirothon team for fifth graders as they conduct experiments and research.  This grant was made possible from endowment proceeds through the Jeffrey D. Sindicich Foundation, a donor endowment fund held by YSEF at the York County Community Foundation.  The fund is in memory of Jeffrey Sindicich, York Suburban graduate class of 1986.

 

  • Escaping Language Limits - Laura Gordon (East York and Yorkshire Elementary Schools) 

In 2016, YSEF supported this pilot program which aims to build connections through “Imagine Learning”, an award-winning software program that features interactive content for the increasing population of English Language Learners.  This program provides first-language support in 15 languages, while gradually translating reading for the students to begin acquiring essential English language skills.  To encourage consistent participation when school is not in session, this $750 grant will fund three face-to-face activity meetings throughout the summer with students and their families to keep the program active and celebrate student progress with families through fun incentives.

Dress Code

 East York Dress Code Reminder                      

Students are expected to exercise good judgment in the selection of appropriate clothing throughout the school year.  *If clothing is deemed inappropriate, the student will be asked to change into acceptable attire.  Dress code expectations are as follows:

  • Blouses, shirts, and dresses with spaghetti straps (with shoulder straps less than three inches 3” wide) must be covered with a top or jacket at all times during the school day 
  • Shorts/skirts need to be an appropriate length.  A good rule of thumb is mid-thigh length or past fingertip length.   Short skirts, short shorts or any display of undergarments are not permitted.
  • Muscle shirts, tops with enlarged arm holes, halter tops,  and bare midriff tops are not permitted.
  •  A student’s footwear needs to be suitable for gym and recess.  Sneakers are the best choice. Flip flops are permitted on non-gym days.

Thank you for your help in reinforcing the dress code expectations.
