Fifth Graders "Digging for Treasures"!

Students in fifth grade at East York Elementary were able to discover the world of ocean fossils in November. Classes for Mr. Weaver, Mrs. Barley and Mrs. Miller were given ocean fossil material from the Aurora Fossil Museum in North Carolina. Students were able to investigate their own fossil samples, looking for various types of sharks’ teeth, stingray barbs, shells, etc. Students were given identification sheets so that they could identify the many fossils in their samples. The best part of the whole activity was that students were able to keep any fossils that they found. It was a great day for hands-on science.



Art Contest Award Winner

Congratulations to Daniel Paz

Congratulations to Daniel Paz, a third grade student at East York for winning the 2014 Art Poster contest sponsored by the Pennsylvania School Board Association.  Daniel’s poster was one of over 300 entries from around the state and he will receive a blue ribbon, a certificate, and an award.  His picture shows an artist creating a painting of the Eiffel Tower in France and the caption states “Public education is giving me the tools so I can paint a better future for myself.”  The poster was on display at the PSBA annual School Leadership Conference at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in October, 2014.

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.
