CYSD Moves the Pride!

K-11 Learners Visit New Classrooms & Schools,

Meet Teachers & Make New Friends

Central York School District hosted "Move the Pride" Day June 2, 2016, for all Kindergarten through Grade 11 learners. Move the Pride is a program through which ALL learners have an opportunity to visit their new classrooms or schools and meet their new, 2016-2017 teachers and classmates before the end of the 2015-2016 school year.

We believe that Move the Pride benefits our students and families, faculty and staff by:
  • Building relationships before the new school year begins (learners, teachers and classmates)
  • Easing student and parent/guardian anxiety over the summer months
  • Allowing teachers to "hit the ground running" at the start of a new school year. 
During this year's program, students in Grades 3, 6 and 8 traveled to their new schools, while learners in other grades visited their new classrooms to meet their new teachers and classmates. The day-long program included many activities designed to help our learners feel more at home in their new classrooms and schools and excited for the upcoming school year!

We will send out a survey for parents/guardians, but if you would like to share thoughts now, please email them directly to

Central York School District will again close some schools and operate on a four-day work week in others during the summer months in an ongoing effort to benefit from cost savings on utilities. In previous years, this initiative has saved the district, on average, $60,000.
