Re-enrollment Process

Posted on: April 18th, 2017

At York Catholic, we are particularly grateful for your partnership with us in the education of your children who bless our community everyday with their talents.  The following is important information regarding Re-enrollment and Tuition Assistance for the 2017-2018 school year.

 

Re-enrollment

In an effort to better prepare for the budget and enrollment numbers for next year, we are aligning the re-enrollment process with our course selection for the first time. Tuition figures for next year will be published in early April after the School Board meeting for budget approval.  In order to budget appropriately, we are asking families to re-enroll now.  This year, we have an early re-enrollment fee of $150.00 per student.  After March 17, 2017, the re-enrolment fee will increase to $200.00, with an increase to $250.00 after May 12, 2017.  As in the past, the re-enrollment fee will be applied to the required fees for Capital Improvement and Technology.

 

Tuition Assistance

Our Advancement Department continues to work hard with our donors to increase tuition assistance opportunities for our students.  If you plan to apply for assistance, please be sure to do so no later than April 15, 2017.

Again, we thank you for choosing YC and we look forward to a continued partnership with your family next school year.

Sports Physicals & ImPACT Tests

Posted on: February 19th, 2017

Athletic Physicals

All Fall athletes must have a physical dated between June 1, 2017 and August 9, 2017 to be eligible to participate in Fall sports.  Physicals given prior to June 1, 2017 are NOT recognized by the PIAA.

Athletic Physicals for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on Monday, June 5, from 6-7:30 PM at OSS Health at 1855 Powder Mill Road.  Students must bring their completed 7-page PIAA Comprehensive Initial Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation form (CIPPE) that can be printed here (the correct forms will be dated March 22, 2017 at the bottom of page 1).  The forms must be signed by a parent.  Cost for the physical is $15.  Checks should be made payable to York Catholic.  OSS requests student-athletes DO NOT enter the building prior to 5:45 PM.

If you go to your own doctor, you must use the PIAA Sports Physical Form (CIPPE) referenced above.  No other form is acceptable.

Please note:  OSS is conducting sports physicals ONLY.  OSS staff will not be performing driver’s license physicals or 11th grade physicals.  All students entering Grade 11 are required by the State of Pennsylvania to have a complete physical prior to the start of the school year.  Grade 11 athletes must schedule an appointment with their personal physician between June 1, 2017 and August 9, 2017.  Be sure to take both physical forms to the appointment (sports physical form & Grade 11 physical form).

 

ImPACT Testing

There has been extensive media coverage about athletics and concussions.  York Catholic has been at the forefront in this area and includes the ImPACT Test (Immediate Post-Concussive Assessment and Cognitive Testing) to monitor our athletes.

All interscholastic athletes, cheerleaders, and members of the marching band and bandfront are required to take an ImPACT Test to establish a cognitive baseline for concussions. This is an established technology used in order to determine the return to play/activity guidelines for participants who have sustained a concussion.

The test is administered on a computer.  The initial baseline is adequate for two years. Therefore, if a student participated on a YC team last season and had an ImPACT test, he or she is not required to repeat it this season.

It is the athlete’s responsibility to email Mr. Brad Hayek at bhayek@yorkcatholic.org to see if a valid ImPACT Test is on file at YC.  If an ImPACT test needs to be taken or re-taken, contact Mr. Hayek for instructions.  Once completed, the student must check with Mr. Hayek to see if the updated ImPACT Test was transmitted properly and is on file.

 

Sports Physical Forms and ImPACT Tests must be given to Mr. Hayek by August 9 at 3 PM to be permitted to start Fall practice.  Forms for high school football players are due Friday, July 7, at 3 PM.

 

For more information, contact Brad Hayek at bhayek@yorkcatholic.org, or Kyle Smink at ksmink@yorkcatholic.org.

 

Awards Assemblies

Posted on: February 18th, 2017

 

Parents are invited to join us at the Senior Awards Assembly on Monday, May 22, at 8:30 AM in the auditorium.

On our last day of school, we will be celebrating the accomplishments of our students in grades 7-11.  Students will be honored for their academic, service, athletic, and musical achievements.  Family members are welcome to attend on Wednesday, June 7, in the auditorium.  The Awards Assembly for Grades 9-11 will start at 8:30 AM.  The Awards Assembly for Grades 7-8, as well as the 8th Grade Moving On Ceremony, will begin at 10 AM.

All grades will dismiss at 11:30 AM for summer break.

Junior Ring Ceremony

Posted on: February 17th, 2017

The Junior Class Ring Ceremony signifies the passing of school peer leadership from the outgoing senior class to the rising senior class.  Fr. Jon blesses the class rings and distributes them during this school-wide assembly.  The Ceremony will be part of our Closing Mass on Tuesday, June 6, at 1 PM.  Parents are encouraged to attend.

Underclassmen Finals

Posted on: February 16th, 2017

 

Final examinations for students in Grades 8-11 are scheduled for Thursday, June 1; Friday, June 2; Monday, June 5.  It is important that all students are present for these exams.  Please do not arrange vacations during these days.  Student trips or vacations will not be approved.  Students will not be permitted to take a make-up exam due to a trip.

Thurs., June 1           English & Foreign Language
Fri., June 2                Math & Social Studies
Mon., June 5             Religion & Science

For most students, two exams will be scheduled for each day, except where conflicts will necessitate three.  The testing periods will be 60 minutes.  Students are to report directly to their first test each day; attendance will be taken in the testing rooms, not in the homerooms.  Should a student not have an exam until the second testing period, he/she need not report until that time.  If a student does not have an exam in the second exam slot, the student is free to leave school at 9:45 AM.

Approximate time frame for most students will be 8:15 AM until 11:00 AM.  School districts have re-arranged their pick-up times to accommodate our early dismissal.

Lunch will not be served on Exam days.

For grades 9-11, these semester exams will comprise 1/5 of the second semester grade.  Students in grade 8 will prepare for and take a final exam; this will be presented as a learning experience in preparation for the transition into senior high school.

In light of the importance of these exams and their scheduling, the only absence that will be accepted on these days will be with a doctor’s excuse.

Values Matter

Posted on: February 1st, 2017

In an ever changing world, Catholic schools must be flexible in meeting educational needs, but must remain steadfast in their foundational values of spiritual fortitude, academic rigor, compassion, and respect. These lessons embolden students to make decisions borne of ethics and compassion, to seek wisdom through their faith, to continually expand their knowledge to embrace success, and to always respect and care for themselves and others.

We believe Faith, Mind, Heart, and Family enrich lives, and we know Values Matter.

Will you help us to ensure a bright future for our students and our school by supporting this year’s Annual Fund? Your gift in any amount, will be treasured and valued.

Thank you for being part of our YC family!
