To All Parents/Guardians/Staff:

Yorktown students, staff and family members had a great start to the 2014-2015 school year.  To help streamline the PTA communication process, and on behalf of the six Parent-Teacher Associations, the district is facilitating the link to register for PTA online communications. Membership is NOT required to be added to PTA e-news, although everyone is welcome.  Each PTA plays a vital role as advocates for children, providing parents and staff with a powerful voice to speak on behalf of every child. The Council of Yorktown Parent Teacher Student Associations (PTSA) serves as a coordinating executive committee whose role is to unite the efforts of the six independent PTAs in Yorktown.

Please consider taking a moment to subscribe to one or more PTA e-newsletters by clicking below.  New this year: By completing this form, facilitated by the YCSD PTSA, you will have the option to select the school(s) from which to receive PTA electronic communications.  You will not need to subscribe individually in each school!  If you have already completed a form at the building(s) of your choice, it is not necessary to complete this form.

This link is housed on the Yorktown PTSA website.  

Please note that at this time, the PTAs are not able to process PTA memberships online; these will continue to be handled by each PTA.

For further information or questions, please contact the Yorktown District PTSA (email address YCSDPTSA@gmail.com).

Please see the full text of Superintendent of Schools Dr. Ralph Napolitano's Welcome Back Letter

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life...The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for the day.  We cannot change our past; we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can control is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I respond to it. You are always in charge of your attitude.    -- Charles Swindoll
