Blue & Gold - CHARGER NEWS


The City of Elmhurst's Commission on Youth welcomes Brent Sopel, former Chicago Blackhawk Stanley Cup champion, on Wednesday, October 25th, beginning at 7:00 PM in York High School's Campbell Gym. His presentation is most appropriate for students 6th grade and up.

A champion of causes, Brent fearlessly defends underdogs of all walks of life. He is no longer hiding “behind the stick” as he reveals his own hidden challenges. Winners and champions aren’t those without struggles; they are the people that overcome them.

The battles Brent fought on the ice left visible scars, but the invisible wounds he suffered cut deeper. Brent's personal story has directed him toward a path of advocating for others who are struggling with similar obstacles. As a result, Brent’s mission is to be:

  • A champion for Dyslexia and Dysgraphia Awareness
  • A champion for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery
  • A champion for Youth Training and Mentoring

Email for more information or with any questions. Special thanks go to Rosecrance in their help sponsoring this event. They will lead a Q&A following Mr. Sopel's presentation that evening.Brent Sopel

Time to start thinking about the winter holidays! This pre-order fundraising sale supports the long-standing Elmhurst tradition of beautifully lit streets that line our neighborhoods during the holiday season. Proceeds will benefit Elmhurst 205 schools and students long after the holiday is over. Trees can be purchased as part of a neighborhood group or individually, just for your yard. Groups of four or more orders are free of charge, scheduled for delivery on Nov. 25 and are coordinated by a tree block captain.

The District 205 Foundation website contains all the tools you will need to be a tree captain for your block; it's an easy and rewarding way to support our schools! Individual Nova Scotia balsam outdoor trees and beautiful Fraser and Douglas firs for indoor display are also available and can be picked up on Dec. 2 at Sandburg Middle School or delivered for a fee. Visit 
for more information or to place an order. Orders are due October 27.


Erin’s Law, House Bill 6193, became Illinois law in 2013. This legislation requires schools to teach age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention for grades Pre-K through 12. In Elmhurst, we already have personal safety built into many grade levels’ health education curriculum. Beginning two years ago, after reviewing the requirements of the new legislation, we recognized that our students could benefit from additional information and strategies in order to consider past events and prevent future encounters. Our curriculum was enhanced at each grade level to cover the following:

  • Distinguishing different types of touch
  • Saying “NO”
  • It’s not the child’s fault if someone touches him or her
  • Identifying and telling a trusted adult

Again this year, an award-winning non-profit group, Imagination Theater, will deliver age-appropriate experiences for our students in 1st through 8th grade. Information about their program, called “No Secrets,” may be found by visiting A schedule of all elementary and middle school student assemblies can be found below.

Our school social workers will visit all of the Early Childhood and Kindergarten classrooms, as they did last year, to share age-appropriate read-alouds with students as a part of the Personal Safety Unit that is already in place at our schools.

York High School will be bringing in presenters from Elmhurst Hospital, as well as addressing the topic in multiple courses.

Please direct all questions about your school’s lesson(s) or assemblies to your child’s principal.
