York School District One Night at the Museum

September 10, 2019

  • Through a partnership with the Museum of York County, York School District One 4K and 5K students and their families were invited to a Night at the Museum.  The Museum of York County opened its doors only for York School District One families on Tuesday, September 10 from 4:30-6:30 pm.  Families learned about stars and planets in a visit to the award-winning Settlemyre Planetarium;  investigated over 2000 specimens in the Smithsonian-styled Naturalist Center; and travelled through the special “In the Dark” exhibit offered through the Cincinnati Museum Center.  Tips for reading with your child were offered by York School District One Parenting Coordinator, Penny Sanders, and children will left with a free book.  This event is the first in a series of five that comprise the District’s Early Childhood Parenting Institute.  Admission to the event was free to families, funded by a 4K Community Block Grant.
