Musical Instrument Donation
Minimize

 The York Suburban School District is looking for donations of gently used instruments that would help with beginner instrument students.  We have many students who would like to start playing an instrument but do not have the means to obtain the instrument.  ANY help would be greatly appreciated!  Let's help get an instrument in these students hands.  Any questions can be guided to Ashley Markey at amarkey@yssd.org.  Donations will be accepted at any of the district building offices.  THANK YOU

YSEF Grants for Valley View
Minimize

YSEF recently released the approved 2017 grants, three of which directly benefit Valley View students.

 

·  Mindful Moments and Yoga for Kids- Lorie Meckley (Valley View Elementary)

The goal of these two grants, totaling $2,339.54, is to enhance the district’s innovative approach to improving students’ social-emotional well-being through lessons in mindfulness inspired by The Mind Up Curriculum.  This grant will facilitate the creation of a Mindful Moments Room, a private space with a calming atmosphere where students can go to focus on the present, calm down, relax, and re-center.  It will also provide teachers professional development on the benefits of yoga, yoga-based breathing, and relaxation techniques.  Yoga classes for students, led by a professional instructor, will also be part of the learning experience with the goal of working toward independent skill use.  Students who learn to effectively use mindfulness strategies have more effective concentration during instruction, are better able to nurture and develop healthy friendships, have improved academic skills, have better time management skills, have lower anxiety and stress levels, and have improved working memory. 

 

 ·        Learning Commons District Initiative:  From Library Media Center to Learning Commons – Amy Kendrick (YSHS); YS STEAM Lab Classroom – Tac Thomas (YSHS); STEAM Integration – Donna Kran, Matt Moran, Karen Campbell and Jared Moore (YSMS); 2017 Kindergarten STEAM – Marilyn Henning (Valley View and Yorkshire Elementary Schools)

   

  YSEF has awarded $30,000 to be distributed among these four grants in support of a district wide “Learning Commons” strategic initiative to incorporate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) concepts into the York Suburban curriculum at all learning levels. STEAM promotes inquiry and project-based learning, collaborative learning, critical thinking skills, innovation, and creativity.  From incorporating coding, engineering, and design into kindergarten lessons to enhancing STEAM labs in the high school to transforming the middle and high school libraries into flexible learning spaces that allow for collaboration and exploration, the collective “York Suburban Learning Commons” grant reinforces the district’s dedication to maintain academic rigor, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.  These grants are supported with corporate funds donated to YSEF through the PA State Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program.
