York High School is proud to present Songs for a New World, in concert with York alumni on Friday, June 3 at 7:30 PM in Baker Auditorium. This evening will showcase the talents of York graduates who are studying or have degrees in Musical Theatre and Vocal Performance.
Songs For a New World, by Jason Robert Brown, is a beautiful theatrical piece with unforgettable music, performed by many of York’s finest alumni. Rebecca Marianetti, director, is thrilled to have students, ranging from ages 19 – 25, back on the York stage.
“Working with these actors, who are now adults, enriches the lives of all of us. These young men and women are graduating from the finest Conservatories and Universities in the country, and pursuing what they love. They are taking time out of their schedules, many of whom are leaving Chicago the day after the performance for professional productions, to finally be on the same stage together. Songs for a New World is a stunning piece of theatre. This will be an evening of immense talent, pure joy, and great love," noted Ms. Marianetti.
Michael St. Peter states, “Performing this amazing piece is the best way that we can give back to the incredible theatre program at York. It's an experience that's always emotional, explorative, and full of joy. Having the chance to work together with good friends after high school is rare enough as it is, but pairing that with the caliber of performing that Ms. Marianetti and Mrs. Pettitt promote is truly one in a million."
Laura Thoresen reflects, “York Drama is so much more than an extracurricular activity, and a place to practice the arts. It's a family. Being a part of this community has proven to be one of the most fulfilling things in my life. Through York Drama, I have formed lifelong friendships and connections with so many incredibly gifted and amazing human beings. What I love about this production is that it allows all of us from separate classes, to unite and share an experience together, doing what we love. As artists, we are all storytellers. Be it singing, acting, or dancing, our mission is to share these stories with the world, and find the truth in these 'lies' that we're telling.
Tickets are on sale starting Thursday, May 12 and may be purchased at http://www.ticketpeak.com/yorkdrama. All seating is reserved.
As the York Health Services Office prepares to welcome your freshman next fall, we want to take this opportunity to explain the requirements for the 9th grade physical.
Illinois State Law requires that all freshmen submit a completed State-approved physical examination form to the school no later than October 15, 2016. The state-approved form can be provided by your physician’s office or can be found on the District website at www.elmhurst205.org. Please be aware that the IHSA sports
physical form is NOT acceptable for entry into the 9th grade, but the 9th grade physical can be used as a sport physical.
In order to meet the State requirement, ALL sections of the form must be completed. Please pay specific attention to the following:
The immunization chart must be filled in with correct dates. This must be signed and dated by a physician, RN, or Medical Assistant. It is important to note that the chart must show that your child received the Tdap vaccine.
The section titled Health History (upper half of reverse side) must be completed, signed and dated by the parent/guardian.
The section titled Physical Examination must be completed, signed and dated by the physician. Please make sure the physician has checked the boxes at the bottom of this page indicating whether or not your child can participate in physical education and interscholastic sports.
You may mail, fax or bring the completed form to the York High School Health Services Office.
Our direct fax number is: 630-782-6594 and our mailing address is
355 W. St Charles Road. Over the summer, the form can be turned into the York High School Main Office. Do not turn in the form to summer school staff, counselors, campus supervisors, coaches or the Athletic Office.
Please note: If any portion of the physical examination form is incomplete, it will be returned to you. Your child will be considered out of compliance with Illinois State Laws until all sections of the form have been completed and received in our office.
In accordance with State Law, students who do not have a physical examination form on file by October 15, 2016 will be excluded from school on that day. Until the completed form is received in the Health Services Office, the student will not be allowed to attend school, participate in school activities, or attend school functions.
To ensure that your child’s physical is completed in a timely manner, we suggest that you make an appointment with your physician prior to the start of school. Students who do not have access to a health care provider may contact the DuPage County All Kids Program at 630-682-7400 for information on available health clinics.
Freshman Sports: The freshman physical, if completed after June 1, 2016, will cover all interscholastic sports participation for the
2016-17 school year. Freshmen trying out for a fall interscholastic activity must have a current physical examination prior to August
If you have any questions, please call the Health Services Office at 630-617-2435 or 630-617-2438. The Health Services Office is closed over the summer. During this time, please direct all questions to the York main office at 630-617-2400. We look forward to working with you and your child.
