“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.” ~Henry Adams

 

Monday is the kick-off for teacher appreciation week. It is a VERY special week at Churchville and we thank all of our families for helping celebrate our amazing staff. This would be a great opportunity over the weekend to reflect as a family about the special teachers in your lives. A few years ago, I reached out to my favorite teacher, Mr. Dan Lawson. He was my middle school social studies teacher. He is and always will be my favorite teacher and I sent him a long thank you letter. He said receiving that letter was the best gift he ever received and I am so glad I took the time to let him know. It was a gift for me as well. If you have the opportunity, I encourage everyone to take a moment and thank a special teacher.

 

Thank you to our students and families for participating in our 3rd Annual GIRLS Academy. It was a wonderful weekend of empowerment and FUN! The Elmhurst College chapter of Kappa Kappa Gamma will be returning to Churchville on May 5th from 3:30 - 5:00 to have a follow up meeting with our girls. This is a time to get together to talk about how GIRLS Academy has impacted them since. KKG members will lead the girls in icebreaker-like activities and VISION BOARD making! Light snacks will be provided. You did not have to attend GIRLS Academy to attend this event.

 

We are honored to be welcoming a Holocaust survivor to speak to our 8th grade students about her experience. Magda Brown will be coming to Churchville on May 9th to speak to our 8th graders during periods 8 and 9 (1:46-3:18pm). Magda is a survivor of the Auschwitz Concentration Camp where she was taken at the age of 17. More about Magda can be found by visiting her website www.magdabrown.com.

 

We invite all parents and the entire community to come join us on Tuesday May 9th from 1:45-3:15pm for Magda’s recounting of her incredible story.

 

This year, we are trying to raise $500 to purchase a brick in Magda’s honor, which will be laid in the tribute pathway at the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie, IL.  To help raise funds, we are offering a special week of 8th grade only “Henry’s Hut” treats that will be sold each day from May 2nd through May 5th, before lunch. All proceeds from these sales will go toward our goal of raising $500 to purchase a brick in Magda’s honor. We will also be accepting donations during the same period toward our goal. We encourage all families to partake in this special day for Magda’s visit on May 9th.

 

Churchville is hosting a fundraiser and we would love your support!! We would like to invite you, your family and friends to eat at Portillo’s (located at 155 S. Route 83, in Elmhurst) on May 9th from 5pm-8pm. Short on time, they have a drive-thru! Churchville will receive 20% of the proceeds; this money will be used to support our PBIS programming. Please show your flyer in paper or on your smartphone when ordering!

 

For our last month of school, we have Spirit Days planned every Friday. Next week, our Friday Spirit Day will be “crazy socks”. Before we can begin our Friday Spirit Days, we MUST celebrate May 4th as “Star Wars Day”.

 

Have a wonderful weekend and May the Fourth Be With You!

 

Respectfully,

 

Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

"Un maestro afecta eternidad; Él nunca puede decir donde está su influencia se detiene.” ~ Henry Adams

 

El lunes es inicio de semana de apreciación a maestros. Es una semana muy especial en Churchville y queremos agradecer a todas nuestras familias que ayudaron celebrar nuestro increíble personal. Esto sería una gran oportunidad durante el fin de semana a reflexionar en familia sobre los maestros especiales en sus vidas. Hace unos años, contacte a mi maestro favorito, Sr. Dan Lawson. Fue mi profesor de Estudios Sociales de la Secundaria. Él es y siempre será mi maestro favorito y le envié una larga carta de agradecimiento. Recibió la carta y dijo que fue el mejor regalo que recibió en su vida y estoy tan contenta que me tomé mi tiempo para hacerle saber. Fue un regalo para mí también. Si tienes la oportunidad, quiero animar a todos a tomar un momento para agradecer a un maestro especial.

Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer joins more than 400 school chiefs from across the state, representing 1.35 million students, in calling for the Illinois General Assembly to immediately pass a state budget. The grassroots initiative - called “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” - also urges lawmakers and Governor Rauner to improve the state’s education funding formula, and pay school districts millions of dollars owed in unpaid bills this year.

As legislators return to Springfield following their spring break, school districts are using school marquees to share their frustration with the state budget crisis and taking to social media with a call to #PassILBudget. As of April 24, 2017, the state now owes District 205 $3,670,579 and has been operating without a full budget for the past 22 months.

“I stand with over 400 superintendents from across the state in a call for action,” said Dr. Moyer. “We need to end the impasse now and move forward with a budget that will serve the two million K-12 Illinois public school students who represent our future.”

The superintendents are calling on members of the Illinois General Assembly and the Governor to do the following:

  • Immediately, and with bipartisan support, end the state budget impasse.
  • Improve the state’s education funding formula and invest in students and schools, including higher education, throughout the state.
  • Pay school districts what they are owed this year.

While K-12 education has benefited from a partially-funded state budget, Illinois schools, students, families, and communities will continue to suffer without a full state budget. Districts will continue to struggle if “Mandated Categoricals,” state payments which support special education, bilingual education, transportation, and other important services, do not get paid this year. District 205 has not received three categorical payments this year. Here are the largest funds due:

  • Transportation -$990,078.06
  • Special Education - $2,616,602.18
  • State Free Lunch - $1,818.25
  • Driver’s Education - $22,080.28
  • Early Childhood - $40,000.00

State revenue accounts for about 8.13 percent of District 205’s operating budget or $9,341,790. The General State Aid payments, which support general operating expenses, are being paid on time, however, the categorical payments are not. District 205 has not received any categorical payments this year with the exception of one late quarter payment from last fiscal year.

"Because this money reimburses costs to existing programming, and because the majority of these services are required by law, the District will likely have to consider either spending down its fund balance, which is an unsustainable solution, or study options to reduce spending in other programming areas in which discretionary decisions are possible," noted Dr. Moyer.

More than 400 superintendents, representing 66 percent of Illinois’ public school students from Carbondale to Chicago to Rockford have joined the effort. Please see press release link below to view the list. Please also reference the Frequently Asked Questions document via the link below.

The Elmhurst District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra students and 6th – 8th grade choir students to continue with instrumental music instruction in June and July. Regular practice during the summer months is critically important for band and orchestra students to reinforce the concepts and skills that they have learned and practiced during the school year. Moreover, learning and playing music is an activity that should be enjoyed year ‘round.

  • The Summer Instrumental Music Program will run from June 12 through July 14. (No class on July 3 or 4.)
  • The registration fee is $92.00. The registration fee includes a Summer Instrumental Program T shirt.
  • Rehearsals for current elementary band and orchestra students (incoming 5th and 6th graders) will be held Monday through Thursday mornings at Bryan Middle School. Each rehearsal is one hour. There will be a rehearsal on FRIDAY, July 7th (in place of the July 3rd holiday). The final performances will be on FRIDAY, morning, July 14.
  • Rehearsals for current middle school band and orchestra students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at York High School. There will be a rehearsal on FRIDAY, July 7th (in place of the July 4th holiday). Middle School Summer Band and Orchestra students may also participate in Jazz Band. The final performance will be on THURSDAY, July 13th.
  • NEW this year, current middle school choir students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) may participate in the summer choir at York High School on Monday and Wednesday evenings (No Class on Monday, July 3rd). Middle school students who register for summer band or orchestra may also enroll in choir at no additional cost. The final performance will be on THURSDAY, July 13th.

The District 205 Summer Instrumental Program is designed to accommodate students who go on vacation and/or participate in other summer activities. Students who can only attend part of the summer program are still strongly encouraged to register and attend whenever they can! Students who practice their instruments during the summer are much more likely to experience continued success in band and orchestra. We strongly encourage your son or daughter to participate as much as he/she is able!

Registration for the Dist. 205 Summer Music Program began on March 20, 2017. You may register for the summer music program by using the Webstore (District) link, also found on the District 205 website: www.elmhurst205.org. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 12, 2017. More details can be found on the Summer School website.
