Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year
Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. We are excited about the new year and can’t wait for our students to fill the classrooms. The welcome back to school letter contains very important information that is essential for you to read for your child to begin school. You will not receive any communication except for emails! Welcome Back to School Letter School Supply List
A full-day kindergarten option, implementation of a formal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program, the addition of a dual language option, systemic interventions and/or enrichments and the addition of instructional coaches – these were the top educational priorities identified in Phase I of Focus 205 – a collaborative conversation between the community and Elmhurst School District 205.
Join other parents at the Elmhurst Public Library on Tuesday, October 18 from 12:30-2:30 PM when Jacqueline Rhew from Alexian Brothers will be presenting Intervention Strategies to Engage Students with Parents Struggling with School Anxiety and School Refusal.

“Welcome to Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205” premiered at elementary and middle school Curriculum Night events last week. It features the voices of D205 students who are also members of the Elmhurst Children’s Theatre. The two-minute video is an overview of the District’s educational priorities, punctuated with images of our students and staff at work and play. It reminds viewers that District 205 is a student-centered, future-focused community which believes all students can and must learn and grow.

Fall brings back many memories of bygone school days. To bring that past to life, the Elmhurst History Museum's schoolmarm is gearing up for a new year at the Churchville Schoolhouse, the City of Elmhurst's 1850s-era one-room schoolhouse, located in Bensenville. Last year, more than 800 students explored local history through this unique living history experience.
You can visit this area treasure at the annual Churchville Schoolhouse Fall Open House on Saturday, October 1 from 11 AM-2 PM. Featured will be: class with the schoolmarm, musical performances of American folk songs by the Conrad Fischer School Singers (11:30 AM and 1 PM), live music by the Battlefield Balladeers, and new this year - dancing the Virginia Reel and Circassian Circle Dance with the school marm. More information is available here.
