Today marks the halfway point in 4th quarter. We have five more weeks in the school year. While the weather is definitely not cooperating, we were finally able to hold our first track meet of the season. It was great to finally be outside despite the temperatures.

Beginning today and every Friday through the rest of the year, our parent volunteers will be leading Junior Achievement in all grade levels. Junior Achievement is a non-profit organization that brings programs to schools all over the nation that focus on work readiness, entrepreneurship, and financial literacy. The lessons are activity-based and highly engaging for our students. Thank you to 8th grade parent, Eric Sanders, for coordinating this amazing experience for our Chargers!

Each year, the Illinois Principals Association hosts a Student Recognition Breakfast to highlight students at every level in each region across the State. Our 8th grade team nominated two students to represent Churchville at the DuPage Region Student Recognition Breakfast on Monday, April 23rd. This year, Churchville will be well represented by Isabel Kachappilly and Neil McGovern. Congratulations to Isabel and Neil!

The annual “Students for the Information Age” TECH 2018 event will be held on Thursday, May 10, at the Illinois State Capitol Building in Springfield. At the event, students will show the public and members of the Illinois State Senate and House of Representatives how technology is being used in the classroom to increase student engagement and improve achievement. From elementary to the high school classrooms, TECH 2018 highlights the crucial role that technology plays in education, ranging from increases in collaboration and critical thinking, to promoting learning beyond the limits of the school day by creating a space for students to share their learning and innovative uses of devices, the internet, and digital curriculum.

Churchville was one of 98 schools across the State of Illinois selected to present. Two of our 8th graders, Ariela Asllani and Isabel Kachappilly, will be presenting “Creative Coding”. They created their own programs in two different coding platforms which they will control using inventions they created with littleBits and a Makey-Makey. We are very proud of our Chargers!

Spring Scholastic Book Fair arrives for students Monday April 23rd and will be here until Friday April 27th. All students have been given a flyer and will be coming to the book fair during the school day. This is a great way to get some awesome books at great prices. Any questions please ask Mrs. Price.

As we finalize our transition to high school for our 8th graders, we have many activities to end the year:

  • April 23    Panoramic 8th grade group photo (orders due Monday)
  • May 5      8th grade dance (7:30 - 10:00)

Hoy se cumple la primera mitad del cuarto trimestre. Tenemos cinco semanas más de este año escolar. Aunque el tiempo sin duda no coopera, finalmente pudimos tener nuestro primer encuentro de la temporada de Carrera Atlética. Fue grato estar afuera finalmente a pesar de las temperaturas.

 

A partir de hoy y todos los viernes por el resto del año, los padres voluntarios estarán dirigiendo Junior Achievement en todos los grados. Junior Achievement es una organización sin fines de lucro brinda los programas de las escuelas de todo el país y se centran en preparación para el trabajo, el espíritu empresarial, y la educación financiera. Las lecciones están basadas en la actividad y son altamente atractivas para nuestros estudiantes. ¡Gracias a los padres de 8vo grado y a Eric Sanders, por la coordinación de esta experiencia increíble para nuestros cargadores!

 

Cada año, la Asociación de Directores de Illinois acoge un Desayuno de Reconocimiento de Estudiantes para dar relieve los estudiantes en todos los niveles en cada región a través del Estado. Nuestro equipo de 8vo grado ha nominado a dos estudiantes para representar Churchville en el Desayuno de Reconocimiento de Estudiantes de la Región de DuPage el lunes 23 de abril. Este año, Churchville estará bien representada por Isabel Kachappilly y Neil McGovern. ¡Felicitaciones a Isabel y Neil!

En el evento, los estudiantes mostrarán al público y los miembros del Senado del Estado de Illinois y de la Cámara de Representantes de cómo la tecnología se está utilizando en el aula para aumentar la participación de los estudiantes y mejorar el rendimiento. De las aulas de primaria a las aulas de preparatoria, TECH 2018 destaca el papel fundamental que desempeña la tecnología en la educación, que van desde aumentos en la colaboración y el pensamiento crítico, para promover el aprendizaje más allá de los límites de la jornada escolar, mediante la creación de un espacio para que los estudiantes compartan su aprendizaje y los usos innovadores de dispositivos, internet, y planes de estudio digital.

 

Churchville fue una de 98 escuelas de todo el estado de Illinois seleccionado para presentar. Dos de nuestros estudiantes de 8vo grado, Ariel Asllani e Isabel Kachappilly harán la presentación de “Codificación Creativa/Creative Codig”. Ellos crearon sus propios programas en dos plataformas de codificación diferentes, que van a controlar el uso de las invenciones que crearon con littleBits y Makey-Makey. ¡Estamos muy orgullosos de nuestros cargadores!

At Tuesday’s Board of Education meeting, the Board heard from three teachers and an instructional coach about how the infusion of technology via the District’s Mobile Learning Implementation has dramatically changed student engagement in their classrooms. They also provided teacher feedback samples on the topics of creativity, student-to-device ratios and device types.

A video created by the Communications Office demonstrated these new and exciting modes of learning and teaching. Assistant Superintendent of Innovation & Growth Dr. Mark Cohen noted that “these skills fit our concept of being future ready and future focused, allowing for collaboration in the digital space beyond the walls of the classroom.”

The Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Summer Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th - 8th grade band and orchestra students and all current 6th - 8th grade choir students to continue practicing in an ensemble during the summer. Consistent, regular practice during the summer helps students to retain and reinforce concepts and skills that they have learned during the school year and helps them continue to learn and grow as young musicians.

  • Summer Band and Orchestra for current elementary students will run June 4 through June 29 at Sandburg Middle School. Rehearsals will be held Monday through Friday mornings. Each rehearsal is one hour. The final performances will be on Friday morning, June 29 at Sandburg Middle School.
  • Summer Band, Orchestra, and Choir for current middle school students will run June 4 – July 6 at York High School from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. Band and Orchestra rehearsals will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Choir rehearsals will be held on Monday and Wednesday evenings. There will be no rehearsals on July 3rd and 4th. The final performance will be on Friday, July 6 at York High School.
  • The registration fee for all levels is $92.00. The fee includes a Summer Music Program T shirt.
  • Middle School Summer Band and Orchestra students may also participate in Jazz Band at no additional cost.
  • Middle school students who register for summer band or orchestra may also enroll in choir at no additional cost.

The Dist. 205 Summer Music Program welcomes students who will be on vacation for some rehearsals 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 as often as they can! Students who practice during the summer are much more likely to experience continued success in band, orchestra, and choir. We strongly encourage your child to participate as much as they are able!

Please see the attached summer music program description for more detailed course information, rehearsal times, and registration options. If you have questions, please contact Brian Berg (bberg@elmhurst205.org) or your child's band or orchestra director.

Registration for the Dist. 205 Summer Music Program will open on Monday, March 19, 2018. You may register for the summer music program by using the Webstore at this link. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 4, 2018.

What is a PLC? In District 205, PLCs play an important role in promoting student growth and building the capacity of our teachers. But what is a PLC and what is its function?

PLC stands for Professional Learning Community. PLCs are designed to ensure high levels of teacher collaboration focused on student learning. They can take many forms. Examples include ensuring that teachers of the same grade level or subject area, as well as instructional coaches, special education teachers and support staff, have time to analyze assessment data, share best practices for success, and plan for future learning.

PLC groups meeting during student late arrival days, institute days and also during the school day at various times throughout the week.

Watch the video below, and let our teachers show you how PLCs are utilized in D205 schools.
