CYSD Proud
CYHS Writing Scholars Attend Conference


In November, 12 Central York High School English scholars had the opportunity to attend Susquehanna University's annual Creative Writing Conference Day.

During their time at the conference, these writers had the opportunity to listen to published authors, professors, and current SU students read from their personal collections to inspire the up and coming writers.  
In the afternoon, the Central learners attended a writing workshop in their chosen genre: poetry, screenwriting, short story, journalism and novel.   They worked with university professors who helped them to hone their crafts.   It truly was a great day to be a panther! #cysdproud

CYMS Yearbook Seeks Sponsors,
Offers Recognition Ads for Students 

Donate Yearbooks to Middle School Students
The Central York Middle School yearbook is now accepting sponsorships from business and community members.  For businesses, you will receive an advertisement in the yearbook, and several students, depending on the sponsorship level, will enjoy a donated yearbook.  Community members may also purchase yearbooks to be given to Middle School students.  Unfortunately, we do have a population of students who cannot afford a yearbook otherwise, and they greatly enjoy the chance to participate in the end of the year festivities once they unexpectedly receive one from a sponsor.   The deadline for sponsorships is the end of December. Don't miss your chance to surprise and delight a Central York Middle School student!  You can email Jen Brown at jbrown@cysd.k12.pa.us or visit https://cymsyearbook.weebly.com/2017-18-business-sponsorships.html for more information.

Honor Your Middle School Student with a Student Recognition Ad
The Central York Middle School yearbook is offering parents and relatives of Middle School students the chance to celebrate their student's accomplishments.  You may purchase a quarter or eighth page space in the yearbook to display your well-wishes and pictures.  The deadline to participate is February 16, 2018.   You can email Jen Brown at jbrown@cysd.k12.pa.us or visit https://cymsyearbook.weebly.com/ordering-student-recognition-ads-7th-and-8th-grade.html for more information.
