The Parents’ Association establishes connections and creates experiences to enrich family and student experiences. By liaising with YHS staff, alums and parents, parent volunteers work to build bridges between school and home, creating an ever-deepening spirit of community.
All parents are members of the association and we welcome our school’s diverse families through a variety of opportunities for involvement. Fundraising supports our children's education. We are a non-profit organization governed by its own by-laws, and all funds raised go directly to the school.
Active participation in the association not only enriches your child’s school experience but also allows you to be a positive role model. Volunteer your time to YHS and enjoy one of the most important times in your child’s life.
The YHS Parents’ Association is your association. Please, get involved and make a difference for your child and for our school. The Parents’ Association offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for you to choose from, from Bid night, special Yorkie Lunch days, Class Parents, Holiday Market, the Fall Raffle, to special events such as the Blackwatch Golf Classic and the Father/Daughter Dinner Dances, there is something for everyone.
