• Build A Bulldog - Annual PTA Fundraising Campaign

    Hello York Families,

     

    The PTA's Build a Bulldog giving campaign is off to a great start! We have raised $6,670 (23%) of our $28,000 goal. Did you know the PTA provides financial support to many programs and services at York Elementary that help "build our bulldogs." Curriculum Enhancements is just one of these areas!

    • We fund cultural arts programs which include music, art, creative writing, drama and dance! These visual and performing arts programs enhance a student's educational experience and provide an outlet for artistic expression. Cultural arts help to explain and expand student knowledge of the world we live in through an exploration of creativity. The PTA provides $12,045 in support to the cultural arts programs and assemblies.

    Some highlights of our planned programs for this year are:

    • Sweet Potato Pie and Such (student assembly) - This highly interactive performance is designed for audiences to participate, celebrate and "Jubilate". Values are indelibly remembered through lively folktales, fables and fairytales. Storyteller Queen Nur will be joined by jazz drummer Dwight James for this performance.
    • Los Coyotes y Las Conejas (student assembly) - Meet Scrawny, a young coyote on an adventure learning to read- something no decent coyote would do- and his cousin, Loco, aiming to set him on the right path. This 35 min bilingual opera is based on a Mexican folktale, underscoring the importance of education to a life filled with adventures in knowledge.
    • Learning in Motion for EveryBody - Our Exceptional Children Services classes will engage in developmentally appropriate movement based sessions that enable them to explore real world topics and academic content through movement. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of creative movement (body control, coordination, balance, etc) while building self-confidence, creativity and teamwork.
