Blue & Gold - CHARGER NEWS


Elmhurst District 205 honored its mentors and volunteers for the 2015-16 school year on April 29, 2016. A total of 41 non-parent mentors and volunteers for the selfless dedication of their time and talents on the behalf of our students. They serve in elementary, middle and high school, as well as the Transition Center.

They were treated to a special lunch prepared by York High School Food and Restaurant Management students under the direction of their instructor, Wendy Albert, Division Chair for Technology & Applied Arts. Served at La Brigade, the high school’s authentic culinary lab and restaurant, the luncheon is a small token of appreciation for the hundreds of hours donated by community volunteers this school year.

As part of the recognition program, a total of 14 volunteers were honored with one, three, five, ten or 15-year service pins, which were awarded as follows:

  • One Year – John Osbolt (Churchville Mentor) and Stacy Wrasse (York Mentor)
  • Three Years – Patt Gutierrez (Sandburg Mentor), Paul Heinz (Bryan Mentor) and Jim Bursch (Sandburg Mentor)
  • Five Years – Lucy Bruzas (Jefferson Classroom), Chris and Debbie Khayat – Jackson Chess Club
  • Ten Years – Leslie Leader (York Mentor), Connie Nestler (York Mentor), Chuck Malefyt (Transition Center Mentor) and Karen Nishimura (York ELL Program)
  • Fifteen Years – Jack Island (Bryan Mentor) and Anna Locascio (York Mentor)

This group alone has given a total of 95 years of volunteer service to the children of District 205. (Here, Jack Island is honored for his 15 years of service as a mentor.)

The mentor program is coordinated by the District’s middle and high school social workers, with support from building administrators, under the auspices of the Communications Office, which also assists in placing school volunteers.

School social workers involved in the program include: Denise Gulotta (Bryan), Bill Denny (Churchville), Mel Phillips (Sandburg) and Teri Finley (York). Melea Smith is the Director of Communications and Public Relations for District 205; Debbie Hollstein serves as administrative assistant for the Communications Office.


As we close out the month of April and enter our final month of school, it is amazing to look back on how much we have accomplished this year let alone this past week! During this past week, we survived rollerblading week in PE without a single injury (I may be jinxing ourselves because I am writing this on Thursday!)! We raised pet food for the Humane Society Drive through the Elmhurst Library. We held our Spring Book Fair. We welcomed our new 5th grade parents to Churchville on Tuesday night. We were served yummy food by teachers on McTeacher Night at McDonalds and we closed out the week an 80’s Neon Day and our Interim Report Card Day today.  On Friday, our 8th graders were fortunate to have a Holocaust survivor come speak to the entire class. The speakers name is Magda Brown and she is a survivor of the Auschwitz concentration camp (among others).You can learn more about her at We were thrilled and honored to have her at Churchville.


We start May with Teacher Appreciation Week! We look forward to this week every year as we take the time to honor our special staff while having a very fun celebration every day. We hope our students take the time to honor their teachers by letting them know how much they mean to them.


Our Spring Choir Concert will be held on Tuesday, May 3rd beginning at 7:00pm. It will be wonderful night of music.


We will be Spring MAP testing our 6th and 7th graders on Thursday and Friday for Reading and Math for our final benchmark of the year. We will be testing during homeroom on our Chromebooks. Our 8th graders will be taking the newly mandated Illinois Science Assessment in lieu of MAP during the same time. Because it is only a 60 minute test, our 8th graders will use the rest of the time allotted for the MAP schedule to work on their multi-disciplinary Invention Convention research.


On Saturday night from 7:00 - 10:00 pm, the PTA will be hosting the 8th grade Dance at Churchville. The theme this year is “Catch the Wave to York”. Each year our parents amaze us with the transformation of our gym into a wonderland. I am sure this year will be no different. It is a magical night our students will always remember. We will have a great DJ, a photo booth, and, of course, refreshments. It is a great way to begin the promotion season.


We are excited to announce the return of Girls Academy on Friday, May 13th for our 7th and 8th grade girls! Last year we partnered with the Panhellenic Council of Elmhurst College through Kappa Kappa Gamma National Sorority and had a wonderful weekend retreat at the school focused on leadership skills and respect. While Elmhurst College was not approved for the full weekend retreat by their national organization this year because it rotates throughout the country, it was such a powerful experience they wanted to create a smaller experience for our girls. We are looking forward to a fantastic evening of girl empowerment on Friday, May 13th from 3:30 - 7:00 pm at Churchville.


Dinner will be provided. Permission slips were sent home on Thursday. Please return them by Friday, May 6th. If you have any questions, please contact me directly. We are very excited to continue our partnership with KKG and Elmhurst College.

Please remember Wednesday is our final Student Late Arrival Day.


Have a wonderful weekend!


Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Estamos por cerrar el mes de abril y entrar en nuestro último mes de escuela, es asombroso mirar atrás sobre lo mucho que hemos logrado este año; ¡y no digamos de la semana pasada! ¡En esta última semana, sobrevivimos la semana de Patinaje en PE sin una sola lesión! Hemos colectado comida para mascotas para la Sociedad Humanitaria junto con la unidad de la biblioteca de Elmhurst. Tuvimos nuestra Feria del Libro de Primavera. Dimos la bienvenida a Churchville a nuestros nuevos padres de 5to grado en la noche del martes. Estuvimos sirviendo junto con nuestros maestros comida deliciosa en la Noche de McTeacher en McDonalds y cerramos la semana con un Día de vestir colores Neón de los 80's y el día de hoy con el Reporte de Calificaciones de la mitad de este Trimestre. El viernes, nuestro octavo año fueron afortunados de tener a un sobreviviente del Holocausto quien vino a hablar a toda la clase como una culminante. Su nombre es Magda Brown y ella es una sobreviviente del campo de concentración de Auschwitz (entre otros).Usted puede aprender más sobre ella en Estuvimos muy emocionados y honrados de tenerla en Churchville.



¡Comenzaremos mayo con la Semana de Apreciación a los Maestros! Esperamos que esta semana como cada año nos tomamos el tiempo para honrar a nuestro personal especial, mientras estemos teniendo una divertida celebración cada día. Esperamos que nuestros estudiantes toman el tiempo para honrar a sus maestros haciéndoles saber cuánto significan para ellos.



El martes, tendremos el Concierto de Primavera de Nuestro Coro, comenzando a las 7:00pm. Será maravillosa noche de música.



Tendremos las Pruebas de MAP de primavera de Lectura y Matemáticas para 6to y 7mo grado los días jueves y viernes para nuestra última referencia del año. Realizaremos las pruebas durante la hora de salón principal con las Chromebooks. Nuestros estudiantes de 8vo grado estará tomando las recién creadas de Pruebas Científicas de Illinois en lugar de MAP durante el mismo tiempo. Porque es sólo una prueba de 60 minutos, nuestros estudiantes de 8vo grado utilizará el resto del tiempo asignado para MAP para trabajar en su invento multi-disciplinario de Convención Investigación/Invention Convention.



En la noche del sábado a partir de las 7:00 - 10:00 pm, a PTA estará patrocinando el Baile del 8vo Grado aquí en Churchville. El tema de este año es "Pescando la Ola de York". Cada año, nuestros padres nos sorprenden con la transformación de nuestro gimnasio con si fuera el país de las maravillas. Estoy segura de que este año no será diferente. Es una noche mágica para nuestros estudiantes, que siempre la recordarán. Tendremos un gran DJ, un photo booth y por supuesto aperitivos y refrescos. Esta es una gran manera de comenzar la temporada de promoción.



¡Estamos encantados de anunciar el regreso de Girls Academy/ Academia para Niñas para el viernes, 13 de mayo para nuestras chicas de 7mo y 8vo grado! El año pasado nos asociamos con el Consejo Pan-Hellenic del Colegio de Elmhurst a través de Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority Nacional y tuvimos un maravilloso retiro de fin de semana en la escuela, el cual se centró en las habilidades de liderazgo de las chicas. Mientras que Colegio de Elmhurst no obtuvo la aprobación de la organización nacional para tener el retiro para todo el de fin de semana en este año porque este retiro se rota a través de toda la nación, el año pasado fue una poderosa experiencia para nuestras chicas que decidieron recrear esta experiencia en una actividad más pequeña para nuestras chicas. Estaremos esperando por esta fantástica tarde de potenciación para nuestras chicas, para este viernes 13 de mayo de 3:30 - 7:00 pm en Churchville. La cena será proporcionada. La forma para el permiso fue enviada a casa el jueves. Por favor, envié de regreso su forma de permiso a más tardar el viernes 6 de mayo. Si usted tiene cualquier pregunta, por favor póngase en contacto conmigo directamente. Estamos muy emocionados de continuar nuestra asociación con KKG y Colegio de Elmhurst.



Recuerde miércoles es nuestro último día de Entrada Tarde para los Estudiantes.



¡Que tengan un maravilloso fin de semana!


Gina Pogue Reeder, La Directora

1er Día Útiles Escolares/1st Day School Supplies 
¡Estoy tan emocionada de anunciar la nueva asociación con el 1er Día Suministros Escolares/1st Day School Supplies! Hemos colaborado con el 1st Day School Supplies para ayudar a padres y profesores a obtener los útiles escolares exactos necesarios para el próximo año escolar sin la molestia y el agravamiento de las compras en Wal-Mart, Target, Staples u otras tiendas.

Así que si en este verano la temperatura llega a más de 100 grados y las líneas en la caja de las tiendas son una milla de largo no me preocupara... Porque yo ya he comprado los útiles escolares desde la comodidad de mi casa y mi hijo/a ya estará con todo listo para ir a la escuela nuevamente en agosto. Usted puede hacer su compra ahora mismo también. Las cajas serán entregadas a Churchville en agosto y estarán disponibles para ser recogidas el 11 de agosto.

The last day of school was approved at the April 26 Board of Education meeting. Due to a mild winter, and no other weather-related incidents, the five emergency days, which are built into the school calendar, have not been used. Below are the student dismissal times. Also, you will find attached a day by day, end of the school year calendar. 

May 23

  • Freshman, Sophomore, Junior last day of school at the conclusion of exams.

May 26

  • Last day of attendance for early childhood and AM/PM kindergarten students.
  • Last day of attendance for 8th grade

The Elmhurst Police Department will be offering free registration of bicycles for Elmhurst District 205 middle school students on three different dates over the next few weeks. Police officers will be present before school at each District 205 middle school to help students register their bicycles with the City of Elmhurst. They will also provide materials regarding Illinois Rules of the Road for Bicycles and other bicycle safety information. Officers will be on site at:

  • Churchville Middle School on Tuesday, April 26 – from 7:45 to 8:15 AM (with a rain date of April 27)
  • Bryan Middle School on Tuesday, May 3 – from 7:45 to 8:15 AM (with a rain date of May 4)
  • Sandburg Middle School on Wednesday, May 11 – from 7:30 to 9:00 AM (with a rain date of May 13)

Blank forms will be available for pick-up by students who do not ride to school that day, and registration forms are always available at the Elmhurst Police Department.

Every year about 1.5 million bicycles are stolen across the U.S.  The majority of these thefts occur when bicycles are left unlocked and unsecured; be it at local store’s bike rack or, left unattended in a residential yard.

Over the last 3 years, Elmhurst has averaged 32 bicycle thefts per year. And, while this number continues to decrease, your police department reminds you that the best way to prevent bicycle theft is to use locks or put bicycles away when not being used. As part of the registration event, bicycle locks will be given away as participation premiums to three lucky on-site registration participants, per school.

The Elmhurst Police Department would also like you to know that only 3 percent of the recovered bicycles, nationwide, are returned to their owner. The main reason is lack of information/proof of ownership. Bicycle registration helps the Elmhurst Police Department to return bicycles to their rightful owners.

Since implementing the middle school bicycle registration event, Elmhurst Police Department has been able to return bicycles that would otherwise go unclaimed. The EPD, in cooperation with District 205, would like to continue to make a major dent in the number of bicycle thefts reported per year with a strong education and registration campaign and that includes this 2016 event.



The testing window for the spring 2016 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 4 and continue through Friday, May 6. These state-required achievement tests are being given to all eligible students. Students in grades 3 – 8 will be tested in reading and mathematics. At the high school level, the assessment is course based. York students enrolled in English 9 or English 9H will take the English assessment. Students enrolled in Algebra AB will take the math assessment. Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students are testing within this window.

Last year, the PARCC assessment was given during two separate testing windows. This year it has been consolidated into a single testing window and the total assessment time has been reduced by approximately 90 minutes. The assessment is still aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards and maintains its focus on critical thinking, concept mastery, and writing skills.

The Illinois State Board of Education expects to receive PARCC assessment scores more quickly than last year. We anticipate that we will be able to share score reports in the fall. The complete results of these state tests will be also reported on the School Report Card in the fall. We will review state tests results along with other information to help us improve our school program.

If you have any questions about the administration of the PARCC assessment, please contact your child’s principal.


The Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra 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 in order 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 6 through July 8. (No class on Monday, July 4)
  • NEW this year, incoming 9th grade band and orchestra students may also register and participate in the sessions at York High School.
  • The registration fee is $92.00. The registration fee includes a Summer Instrumental Program T shirt.
  • Sessions for current elementary students (incoming 5th and 6th graders) will be held Monday through Thursday mornings at Sandburg Middle School. Each session is one hour. The final performances for the elementary sessions will be on FRIDAY morning, July 8.
  • Sessions for current middle school students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at York High School. The sessions at York also include an opportunity for students to participate in Jazz Band. See the attached program description for more details.


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!


Please see the attached summer instrumental music program description for more detailed course information, rehearsal times, and registration options. If you have questions, please contact me or your child’s band or orchestra director.
