During the month of October, Mrs. Lisa Turner’s 21st Century Literacy Skills classes learned what it meant to be a good digital citizens. Students learned about acceptable and appropriate uses of different kinds of technology and the information they provide. As part of this process, students worked in collaborative groups to develop a more in-depth understanding of cyberbullying, its impact on others, and ways to stop it. The  website link contains group projects, in a variety of media formats, that focus on ways to stop cyberbullying. These projects represent students’ learning on the topics of cyberbullying and digital citizenship.

In response to growing concern about children and families living with hunger throughout the school district, Central York School District is pleased to announce the launch of The Panther Pantry, a district-wide food pantry created to assist families in need throughout the school district. 
A group of faculty and staff members from throughout Central York School District created the concept of the pantry, which is designed to help support families in need by offering nutritious food gathered through donations from the Central York community each month.  The pantry will be open the third Tuesday of every month from 6 to 7 p.m. from the months of October through May. 

Central York families can pull up to the front of the high school building to receive their grocery bags.  Families will only need to provide their family name and the name of the oldest child in the district. 
Donate items the week of December 8th:
Send donations to school with your child knowing that all the donations received will go to our Central families.
