The York Academy PTO is a parent-run organization that works closely with school staff. Parents are welcome to join or attend meetings anytime throughout the year. Everyone is welcome! They help fund field trips, family fun nights, assemblies, classroom supplies and more. The York Academy PTO's objectives are to:

  • Promote the welfare of the children in our schools. Improve conditions for children in school and the community.

  • Bring about a closer relationship between parents/guardians and teachers so that they can work together in helping the children become outstanding citizens in the community.

  •  Secure the best advantages of physical, academic, and social education for each child.

Make sure to follow the York Academy PTO on social media to stay in the know and learn about upcoming events and fundraisers. Information will also be shared in weekly editions of Knight News.

Questions? Email the PTO.

PTO Dress Down Days are held on the first Friday of each month. With a $1.00 donation, students and staff may wear the (school appropriate) attire of their choosing. Click here to view the Dress Code (see page 2). All proceeds will fund family fun nights, assemblies, classroom supplies, teacher appreciation activities, and more.
