#ICYMI: It was a great weekend for YCSD spring sports and our talented student athletes! Tabb High's softball team brought home the state title for the first time ever, while the York and Grafton men's soccer teams each brought home the runner-up trophy. York's tennis team also had strong showings with a singles title for Natasha Novak and the boys team playing the team finals!

Engineering and Design class students at Tabb Middle School have been studying how to "Save the Bay" using Hummingbird Robots. Students identified a pollutant or problem affecting the waterway and then designed, built and tested a prototype solution to help improve the health of the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries. Students were also able to collaborate with students in California who were developing solutions for the San Fransisco Bay. They presented their finding to "Chesapeake Bay Watershed residents" in class today.

Bethel Manor Elementary School is dedicated to creating a culture of kindness. Mrs. Stephenson's kindergarten class read "What Does It Mean To Be Kind?" and then practiced what they had learned by writing complimentary notes to one another. Students took turns reading their notes aloud. Kindness is contagious!

Congratulations to York River Academy! YRA was just named one of the top 100 high schools in the country for financial literacy instruction by Working in Support of Education (W!SE). The W!SE Financial Literacy Certification program is used by high schools in 48 states.
Students who pass the financial literacy test earn a nationally recognized financial literacy certification. The annual ranking is determined by the school’s average score on the certification test with consideration given to eligibility for free lunch and the proportion of test takers to the school population.

The Social Advocacy Project is a year-long, multi-component assignment that develops the 21st Century student’s ability to communicate, collaborate, and think critically and creatively about a topic of their choosing. Students develop their citizenship skills by promoting solutions or awareness of significant social problems, encouraging them to come up with ways to improve the world in which they live. Through extensive research, real-world writing assignments, public speaking activities, and creative problem-solving students develop a portfolio of materials to stimulate positive social change beyond the school walls.
