Mr. York High Competition:
- The Class of 2023 is reviving an old tradition: the Mr. York High Competition. Boys from grades 9-12 are invited to apply for the competition by sending a 30-second video of themselves explaining why they should be considered for the title of Mr. York High. Videos must be received by Friday, Dec. 16th to be considered. Please email to Mr. Conrad (email@example.com).
- The competition itself will be held on Thursday, Jan. 19th at 7:00 in the YHS auditorium. Events will include a talent competition, an interview segment, and YHS/Yorktown trivia. Tickets will be sold at school from 1/17-1/19 for $5 and at the door for $7 each, with proceeds benefiting senior class events.
Cap & Gown Orders:
It's already time to start thinking about ordering caps & gowns for graduation! YCSD contracts with the Herff-Jones company to furnish all graduation-related items. Graduating seniors will need to order a cap, gown, and tassel, but there are also numerous optional graduation items available for purchase. The fastest and simplest way to place your order is on the Herff-Jones website, hjvirginia.com.
I've attached a flyer to this site that includes popular items and pricing. Remember that the basic requirement is for graduates to order a cap, gown, and tassel. The base price for that package is $55.50, not including tax and handling. We strongly encourage everyone to order their items by December 15th, as some prices will increase after that date.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Graduation will be here before we know it!
