Student Activity Fee: The fee for the 2022- 2023 school year is $60.00. This includes a photo I.D./ Student Activity Card, a copy of the East York’s Yearbook and the right to:
· participate on athletic teams;
· participate in noon-hour intramural competitions in the gym;
· join any number of the myriad of organizations/clubs and/or groups;
· purchase tickets to school dances/semi-formal;

In addition to the student activity fee there may be occasions where students are required to pay a fee for an enhancement to a particular course over and above what is required to obtain the credit in that course or a user fee to participate in an extra-curricular activity.
Student Activity Council (SAC)
The SAC represents the interests of the East York student body in the affairs of the school. It is made up of an executive as well as grade representatives. The council is elected each year in the spring. It provides an excellent opportunity to play a strong leadership role at East York, to learn important skills while serving the school and community and for personal growth. A successful council enhances the culture and climate of our school thus providing a positive environment for both staff and students to succeed. Funding for all clubs and most sports teams comes from the sale of SAC/ID cards and from fund-raising activities.
The Peer Mentors of EYCI are senior students who provide support to incoming grade 9 students in their transition to high school through regular home form visits. They also support activities such as grade 9 Head Start to High School and other grade 9 related events throughout the school year.
Student Ambassadors are senior students who provide support to grade 10, 11, or 12 students who are new to EYCI by providing the students and their families with tours of the school. They also support important events around the school such as photo day, parents night, commencement, our annual pathways fair, and many others.
Each year, East York’s Yearbook Committee produces an outstanding yearbook. Student photographers, writers and designers capture moments in East York’s history and create a memory that will last a lifetime. Volunteers of all ages are welcome.
East York Athletic Association (EYAA)
The East York Athletic Association strives to increase student awareness on the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle. Students take part in lunchtime intramural activities, healthy snack initiatives and leadership conferences to gain an understanding of the importance of maintaining a healthy, active and balanced lifestyle. The EYAA not only supports our school team athletes, but promotes physical activity for all East York students to participate in.
East York Environmental Club (EYEC)
Every classroom and hallway is equipped with a BLUE BOX for paper recycling. Almost any type of paper, EXCEPT tissues and paper towels, can go in these boxes. BLUE BOXES are also available around the school for aluminum cans, glass and plastic bottles, milk cartons, and juice boxes. Please – recyclable material ONLY in the recycling bins!
School Council Meetings
The school council for EYCI has been created to enhance students’ learning through the co-operative efforts of parents, students, staff members and others in the community. New members are always welcome. The council is an excellent forum for parents/guardians to learn about the programs and the facilities at East York. The school meetings take place four times per year. The dates are found in the google school calendar and begin at 6:30 p.m. in East York’s Meeting Room (Room 158).
East York offers a wide range of activities and encourages students to participate in activities outside the classroom. EYCI believes in academics first and as a result has an academic eligibility policy that governs student participation in these activities. The following is a list of activities that have been offered at EYCI. Please note that the list is subject to change. Get involved!
