Thank you to the District 205 Foundation for the Thiems Grant which has helped us to begin converting our library into a more future-ready learning space.
The newly created Aidan Shea Foundation is hosting its inaugural event, a "Greek God Gala," on December 3 at the Wilder Mansion. All in the Jackson and Elmhurst community are invited to attend. The event features a kids drop off party, which runs from 7-9, and an adult party which runs from 7-11. The event is Greek God themed because of Aidan's love of mythology; costumes are encouraged! The Foundation was formed to celebrate and honor the life of Aidan, who was a vibrant member of our Jackson school community. Proceeds will benefit Lurie Children’s Hospital Foundation & the Jackson School Future Ready Library Project. To purchase tickets to the event or make a donation to the foundation, go to http://www.eventbee.com/v/aidansheafoundation/event?eid=138442312. For more information, email email@example.com.
The United Community Concerns Association thanks everyone for your continued support as we work together to provide food and food certificates to District 205 school children and their families. Last year, UCCA provided food and food certificates valued over $78,000 to 307 District 205 Families who qualify for free lunch or reduced fees.
The upcoming Holiday Food Drive will occur at schools between October 24 and November 18. The food is to be transferred to the Elmhurst Public Works Garage at 985 S. Riverside Drive from Nov. 21-23. Sorting and packing will take place there November 28-30. Food deliveries to families will occur Saturday, December 10 starting at 8:00 am.
Thank you for supporting the effort to fight hunger in our own community.

The District 205 Foundation for Educational Excellence unanimously approved to provide $50,000 to help fund the Future Ready Model Classroom project, a pilot program that will create three future ready classrooms at the K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 grade levels. The Foundation will use proceeds earned throughout the year to help fund the project, which began this summer and should be completed in late fall of 2016.
On Monday, October 24, Focus 205 focus group meetings will be held at each of our three middle schools - Bryan, Churchville and Sandburg - from 7 to 8:30 PM. Parents of elementary and high school students are encouraged to attend their child's "feeder" middle school; parents of middle school students are invited to attend their child’s current school. Community members are also invited to participate.
Honor the Elmhurst Community’s holiday tradition and order a festive Nova Scotia Balsam tree for your front yard from the Elmhurst District 205 Foundation’s holiday tree sale. Proceeds from the tree sale will support educational grants, enhancements and programs that benefit the students of Elmhurst Public Schools.
Parents or guardians are expected to schedule vacations during the summer or on school holidays. In instances where absences are requested for vacation, parents and guardians must submit a written request to the principal two weeks in advance. The absence will be considered unexcused if this procedure is not followed. Students approved for a vacation will be expected to complete missing class work after returning. Students will be given one day for each day missed to make up work. Teachers will not provide class work or assignments in advance.
