TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR D205 FOUNDATION 2018 GALA – Rise up to the challenge of making a difference in the education of our children. The 2018 D205 Foundation Fundraising Gala, Empowering Futures, will take place on Saturday, February 10th beginning at 6:00 PM at the Hyatt Lodge in Oakbrook.

Our goal is to provide enhanced opportunities for students to learn and practice skills that will better prepare them for their future. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.9 million in educational enhancements that bring added resources and creative educational opportunities to the classrooms of Elmhurst District 205.

Please take a moment to participate in the fourth annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. This survey will allow you and your child (in grades 4 through 12) to share thoughts on important elements of school effectiveness at your child’s school. It asks students about their experiences in school and parents about their experiences with your child’s school, giving school leaders critical student input to help develop school improvement plans.

Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. Teachers or administrators will never see individual responses to survey questions and will only receive aggregated information, such as the total percentage of students who agree homework assignments help them learn the course material. The parent survey takes about 10 minutes. To take the parent survey please visit and select the appropriate survey to begin. A link is also provided on the Elmhurst D205 website.

You are invited to attend the 16th Annual Summer Recreation Open House sponsored by Elmhurst District 205 PTA. This is a FREE event open to all Elmhurst families and neighboring communities. Browse the tables of various organizations offering summer activities and camps for all ages and abilities. This open house will be held on Tuesday, February 6, 2018 from 6-8 pm at York High School,355 W. St. Charles Road, Elmhurst, IL
