It is hard to believe we are in our final week of school!  As we close out the 2015-2016 school year, please take this opportunity to search the house for missing library books. Replacing library books is an expensive and time consuming undertaking.  Please help us keep our library strong and stocked. We appreciate your assistance in locating and returning missing books by Monday.  Also, please look at your child’s lunch account to ensure that there is not a negative balance. Again, we appreciate all of your assistance and cooperation.


 

We have a very exciting week for our Class of 2016! They will be receiving their gowns on Monday.  Please take them out of their packaging prior to the ceremony.  They will be wrinkled. I wanted to give a special reminder to all those coming to our promotion ceremony at York High School to arrive no earlier than 7:30pm. While we will all be excited and anxious to arrive and begin our celebration, Bryan Middle School will be finishing their ceremony which starts at 6:00pm. If you arrive before 7:15 PM there will be no parking available.  If you arrive at 7:30, there will be ample parking. Another request for promotion night will be to refrain from bringing balloons. Balloons can obstruct the view of others, so please leave your balloons at home. We want everyone to enjoy the wonderful ceremony on May 26th.

Please feel free to contact the office with any questions.


 

Due to the ample seating available in the Green & White gym, we do not issue tickets for general admission. Handicapped seating on the main floor will be available to our guests. Please contact the school office if you should need handicapped seating for anyone in your party, as those seats are limited and will require tickets. Please note that those needing handicapped seating can receive one additional pass to accompany them in the handicapped seating area and the remaining persons in your party will be seated in the bleachers.


 

The PTA will be sponsoring a reception in the York Commons immediately following the ceremony, which will be a great place to take pictures. A professional photographer will be present to take pictures of students as they receive their diploma.  These pictures will be available for purchase and to take home at the photography table in the York Commons after the ceremony. The cost for a framed 5 x 7 photo is $15.00 or 2 photos for $20.00.  The high school will open at 7:15 p.m. and all graduates should meet in the South Gym no later than 7:30 pm.  Parking will be available in all York High School parking lots. The lots have considerable handicapped parking spaces. If these spots fill, there is a drive through lane for drop off prior to parking your car.


 

This year our Churchville Library sponsored its 12th annual All School Read.  This experience has joined hundreds of Chargers together through reading.   Students and staff who participated have had their photos displayed in a collage outside the library.  This year’s All School Read was the book I am a Taxi.  We would like to thank all Chargers who took the time to read the book.  When looking at our All School Read think about this:  One School One Book, Three grade levels, Two Hundred and Five Pages, Three Hundred and Forty Eight Student Readers, Fifty Four Adult Readers, One brave boy named Diego, One amazing author, Deborah Ellis, One Supportive PTA, Our CMS All School Read Two Thousand and Sixteen.


 

We can’t wait to see how many Chargers will be a part of next year’s All School Read!!


 

Have a wonderful weekend!


 

Respectfully,


 

Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Message from Carrie Greene - Outgoing PTA President

Dear Churchville Community,

I would like to thank this year’s PTA board for their time, energy and commitment to Churchville. Most of these fabulous people will be continuing on as board members next year. Please join me in thanking the following parents for their efforts in the PTA this year:

 

  • Stephanie Eder – President Elect
  • Nikki Gran - VP of Fair Share/Membership
  • Kari Levine - VP of Events/Programs
  • Mina Krauter – Treasurer
  • Karen Meyer – Secretary

 

Also, I would like to wish Karen Meyer all the best as a York parent and welcome Ana Nichols (President Elect) and Jim Caffrey (Secretary) to the PTA board for 2016-2017. Stephanie Eder will be next year’s PTA President.  Many thanks to these individuals, for stepping forward to undertake such important duties at Churchville.

 

Finally, my tremendous gratitude goes to all of the parents, teachers, and staff who have put in countless hours on social events, dances, honor roll breakfasts, appreciations, library duties, outdoor beautification, after school/weekend clubs and programs, and numerous other activities. Our school continues to be a spectacular place due to the ongoing support that has been provided to our students. We can all take Charger pride in our stellar school and in the excellent relationships that have been created across our entire school community.

 

Have a great end of year and hope all new, current, and past Chargers have a wonderful summer!

 

Carrie Greene
PTA President 2015-2016

¡Es difícil creer que estamos en nuestra última semana de clases! Como cerraremos el año escolar 2015-16, por favor tome esta oportunidad para buscar la casa los libros perdidos de la biblioteca. El remplazo los libros de la biblioteca es costoso y requiere mucho tiempo. Por favor, ayúdennos a mantener fuerte y abastecida nuestra biblioteca. Agradecemos su ayuda en la localización y devolución de libros que faltan antes del lunes. También, por favor revise la cuenta de almuerzo de su niño  para asegurar que no tenga un saldo negativo. Una vez más, agradecemos a todos su asistencia y cooperación.

 

 

¡Tendremos  una semana muy emocionante para nuestra clase de 2016! Van a recibir sus batas para el lunes. Por favor saque la bata del paquete  antes de la ceremonia y asegúrese que no esté muy arrugada. Quiero dar un aviso especial a todos aquellos que vienen a nuestra ceremonia de Promoción en York High School para que no lleguen  más temprano de las 7:30pm. Sabemos que todos estaremos entusiasmados y ansiosos por llegar y comenzar nuestra celebración, pero la Secundaria Bryan estará terminando su ceremonia que comienza a las 6:00pm. Si llega antes de las 7:15 no habrá estacionamiento disponible. Pero  si llega a las 7:30 habrá un amplio aparcamiento. Otra solicitud  para  la noche de promoción es que se  abstenga de traer globos si es posible. Globos pueden obstruir la vista de los demás, así que por favor deje sus globos en casa. Queremos que todo el mundo disfrute de la maravillosa ceremonia celebrada el 26 de mayo. Por favor siéntase libre de ponerse en contacto con la oficina con cualquier pregunta.

 

 

Debido a los amplios asientos disponibles en el Gimnasio Verde y Blanco no podemos emitir boletos de admisión general para los  asientos en este evento. Asientos especiales  de discapacitados están disponibles para nuestros invitados.

Por favor tenga en cuenta que las personas que necesiten asientos de discapacitados pueden recibir un pase adicional para un acompañante en esta área y el resto de sus invitados deberán  sentarse en el área de las gradas.

 

 

La PTA patrocinará una recepción con galletas en el York Commons después de la ceremonia, en el cual será un excelente lugar para tomar fotografías. Un fotógrafo profesional estará presente para tomar fotografías mientras los estudiantes reciben su diploma. Estas fotos estarán disponibles para que las compre y las lleve a casa.  La mesa del fotógrafo  estará en el pasillo principal después de la ceremonia. El costo de una foto con cuadro 5 x 7 es $15.00 o 2 fotos por $20.00 La preparatoria se abrirá a las 7:30 p.m. y todos los alumnos deben de juntarse en el Gimnasio del Sur, no más tarde  de las 7:30 pm.  El estacionamiento de la Preparatoria York estará disponible para su uso. La escuela tiene pocos  espacios para estacionamiento de hándicap. Si todos los lugares están  llenos, hay  un lugar donde pueden manejar  en frente del edificio y dejar que bajen antes que estacione su vehículo en el estacionamiento.

 

 

Este año nuestra Biblioteca de Churchville patrocino su 12vo año de de Toda la Escuela Leen. Esta experiencia ha unido a cientos de Chargers  juntos a través de la lectura. Los estudiantes y el personal que participaron tienen sus fotografías mostradas en un collage fuera de la biblioteca. Este año fue el libro de lectura escolar Soy Un Taxi. Nos gustaría agradecer a todos los Chargers  que se tomaron el tiempo para leer el libro. Cuando nos mires  esto de Toda la Escuela Lee piense en esto: Una Escuela, Un Libro, Tres diferentes Grados, Doscientos y Cinco Páginas, Trescientos Cuarenta y Ocho Estudiantes Lectores, Cincuenta y Cuatro Lectores Adultos, un valiente chico llamado Diego, un fantástico autor, Deborah Ellis, Una PTA Colaborativa, es nuestra CMS Toda la Escuela Lee Dos Mil y Dieciséis

 

 

¡No podemos esperar para ver cuántos Chargers serán parte del próximo año de Toda la Escuela Lee!!   

¡Que tengan un maravilloso fin de semana!

 

 

Respetuosamente,

 

 

Gina Pogue Reeder, La Directora

Members of the District 205 Middle School Task Force (MSTF) presented their Annual Report to the Board of Education on May 10, 2016 regarding their work this school year, as well as the results of the recent District Management Council (DMC) survey of the parents of middle school students, 31% of whom also have children currently enrolled at York High School.

Superintendent Dr. David Moyer introduced his co-chair of the Middle School Task Force, Michele Bowles (Bryan), as well as Katy Padberg (Elmhurst Teachers’ Council President and a teacher at Sandburg), middle school principals Linda Fehrenbacher (Sandburg), Jackie Discipio (Bryan) and Gina Pogue Reeder (Churchville), along with presenters Michelle Kalchik (Bryan) and Dr. Carrie Emrikson (Sandburg). The MSTF includes additional staff from the three middle schools – six from each – who represent a variety of disciplines and all three grade levels, sixth through eighth.

The idea of a Middle School Task Force came out of the most recent negotiated agreement between the Board of Education and the Elmhurst Teachers’ Council. The purpose of the Task Force is to define the philosophy of the D205 Middle School Program. Facets of implementation and development of consistency across the middle schools shall incorporate the following guiding principles:

  • Use research-based, best practices for learning and teaching;
  • Consider individual needs of students while maintaining consistency across middle school buildings; and 
  • Communicate clearly the specific reasons for any changes.

The District Management Council’s proposal, presented to the Board of Education last September, was to:

  • Codify the school’s priorities and theory of action for serving students
  • Review each school’s program offering, use of time, and schedules
  • Review supports and services for struggling and gifted students
  • Review the cost-effectiveness of staffing patterns and practices
  • Create and help implement a phased-over-time plan for continuous improvement

MSTF timeline and process:

  • August: TA reached on certain contractual items, including Middle School Task Force
  • September: Board approves consulting contract with District Management Council
  • September: Communication with MS faculties (Bowles, Moyer, Padberg, Jim Woell)
  • October: ETC identifies members for MTSF to include representation from all buildings and content areas
  • October: Initial organizational meeting of MSTF
  • November: DMC conducts Focus Group interviews of approximately 100 employee and parent stakeholder groups
  • January: DMC conducts MS Time Study
  • January - March: MSTF studies District Student Achievement Objectives and best educational practices to include Professional Learning Communities, Effect Size Research, Assessment, Middle School Philosophy, Interventions, and identifies core values
  • March: DMC presents findings
  • April: Parents survey conducted to elicit feedback on findings of study; MSTF identifies current building practices related to interventions
  • May: MSTF begins action planning for next steps

Parent Survey Results:

  • the survey was sent to 3,157 unique email addresses, representing 1,999 middle school students; about 31% of the respondents also have a child at York High School
  • 390 parents took the survey (an approximately 12% return rate)
  • 38% of the parents ranked instructional coaching as the top opportunity for the District to consider pursuing
  • An overwhelming majority of parents expressed an interest in learning more about the four opportunities for growth presented in the survey
  • Open responses fell into five general categories
  • Results will be included into a final report, which will be posted publicly
  • Additional opportunities for input and feedback: Middle School Task Force Website and Fall parent meetings

The opportunities gaining the most traction among parents taking the survey were:

  • Coaching for general education teachers to support continued professional development in lesson planning and responding to a wide variety of students' needs in the classroom (known as differentiated instruction)
  • Creation of an intervention/enrichment block in order to provide dedicated time for struggling students to gain grade-level mastery, as well as opportunities for increased enrichment for students on or above grade-level.

Overall, parents expressed an interest in learning more; communication continues to be an important part of this work. Plans call for each middle school to hold parent information nights next fall to discuss the work of the Task Force, answer questions and gather ideas.

 

The Board took no action and will continue to hear reports and recommendations from the Middle School Task Force. The work of the Middle School Task Force (including a summary of survey results) is featured as part of the new District 205 Committees website. To access the Middle School Task Force tab directly, click here.

While the survey collected many open-text box comments from parents, which the District continues to read through and analyze in depth, there will be opportunity for further feedback through a comments box accessible from the Middle School Task Force pages. Parents are urged to share any and all ideas related to the Middle School Program on the comments page or submit a question to be added to the FAQ page.
