How You Can Support Yorktown Students and Teachers Through the PTA
Yorktown families have several options for supporting our school community, in addition to volunteering their time to help with a school or PTA activity or program.
This time of year is when the Yorktown PTA holds our one fundraiser–the Phantom Phling–so we greatly appreciate any donations that families make when joining the PTA at www.YHSPTA.org. PTA funds support students and teachers — creating learning experiences, purchasing classroom equipment, and strengthening extracurricular activities.
Also, please participate in our grocery program — it is easy and an important source of funding for the PTA’s teacher grants and support of student activities. Cashiers at Harris Teeter and Giant can link your card to Yorktown High School quickly as you go through the checkout lane or you can link it yourself online.
Grocery program information to link your card to YHS:
* Harris Teeter — YHS code is 4542
* Giant — YHS code is 02223
You can designate our school in the Amazon Smiles program at https://smile.amazon.com/ and select Yorktown High PTA, and in the Safeway eScrip program — sign up at http://www.escrip.com/ and designate Yorktown High School. In order for your purchases at amazon to benefit our school, you must access amazon through the smiles link.
Thank you, Yorktown families — together we are making a difference for our students!
I hope to see you at the PTA meeting next Monday, October 16, 7:30-8:30 p.m. in the library.
