Knock, knock! Guess what? The door decorating contest took place on Friday, December 9th, 2022, our first half day of the month. It took place from 8:05-9:00 A.M. The theme was winter wonderland. All advisory classes were hard at work. As many took the competition too seriously, many ran through the halls, and others sprinkled glitter on their heads. No wonder everyone was sparkling after that day!
Our Central York Middle School principal Dr. Harper and the vice principal Ms. Van had lots of challenges for our participants. The first challenge was the “first come first serve” challenge. The second challenge was a “first to call a number gets a prize” challenge. One of the ladies came on the announcements and gave us a Christmas related clue to solve. Students needed to solve the clue and call a specific number to answer. If the class was the first to answer, they received a prize.
Congratulations to the winners of the door decorating contest! Mrs. Christy’s advisory won 1st place, Mr. Decker’s advisory won 2nd place, and Mrs. Graham’s advisory won 3rd place.
Every door around the school is now festive and crafty. The door decorating contest was a fun way to get involved (and be competitive). Plus, the students got a chance to relax. Hopefully everyone at Central York Middle School can enjoy all the doors as they walk by. Great work, Central!

Central York Middle School offers an opportunity to students about once a month on a Friday to stay after school and spend time with their friends. We like to call these Fun Fridays. On these days, students can participate in an after-school event that costs four dollars. There are many activities that are then offered to the students like games, basketball, chalk, bingo, and other activities depending on the month's theme. The theme for October 28th was Halloween and there were some spooky things that happened during Fun Friday. These activities are run by Student Council and funded by the PTO and supported by many parent volunteers. Student Council brainstorms ideas each month to try to incorporate something new into the next Fun Friday. In conclusion, Fun Friday is an activity that is worth a small expense to stay after school and have a fun time with your friends! Come join us!
