  • Field Day

    Last week, York Prep students, faculty, and administration basked in the glorious fall weather in Central Park during Field Day! Spirits were high, and everyone was excited to be back after taking a break from Field Day last year due to the pandemic.

Delicious boxed lunches were provided for all in attendance, and we ended the day with a special treat in the form of an ice cream truck that served yummy frozen desserts!
