Emerson's New Playground

The excitement began when the equipment started arriving. Our students were thrilled to see it and knew that the new playground would be built soon.  Thank you to Amanda Tolman for leading the charge and creating fund raising opportunities that involved our students' participation. Thank you to the PTA for your continued dedication and support. Thank you to District 205 who helped by getting the holes dug and then on Saturday, many parents arrived to help put it all together. We had over 40 volunteers who helped to put our playground together. They thought they were signing up for a 2 hour volunteer work day and most put in many more hours than that.  Then we had many of them come back for another 2 hours to spread mulch and finalize the install. The Emerson Student Council purchased benches - One of them a Buddy Bench. If you don't have anyone to play with on the playground, students can go sit on the Buddy Bench. Someone else can then see they need someone to play with and invite them to play. Student Council representatives told the students what the Buddy Bench is both outside at the ribbon cutting ceremony and over the intercom so every student could hear. Thank you so much for all of your support. 

 

Ms. Weglarz's class raised the most money collectively from the fund raising efforts. They helped cut the ribbon that officially opened up the new playground. They also got to be first to play on the new equipment. They assured me that it was great. 

 

In addition to the slide show, there is also a time lapsed YouTube video of the installation.  Time lapse video

On May 24, 2016, the Board of Education voted to approve a Memorandum of Agreement with the Elmhurst Teachers' Council. The basis of this proposed agreement will clarify contract language regarding the Student Late Arrival days at all grade levels. The purpose of the change is to enhance the collaborative and educational instructional practice of our teachers in order to have a deeper impact on student learning and growth.

The agreement returns Student Late Arrival days at York High School to a nearly weekly occurrence on Wednesdays (with October 19 being the exception, as it is the national PSAT testing day). The agreement maintains monthly Student Late Arrival days on most Wednesdays at the early childhood, elementary and middle school levels. However, the duration of the collaboration meetings held on Student Late Arrival days will be extended from 70 minutes to 90 minutes at all levels.

Start times for 2016-17 Student Late Arrival days are as follows:

  • Elementary School: Student instruction begins at 9:45 AM
  • Middle School: Student instruction begins at 10:00 AM
  • High School: Student instruction begins at 9:25 AM

Due to the fact that District 205 uses the same bus company to transport students at all three levels – elementary, middle school and high school, there is some extra time built in to the Student Late Arrival days to allow for busing needs. Regular start times will remain the same as they were in 2015-16.

As always, supervised student arrival will begin 15 minutes prior to start time. However, for families who need to maintain the same schedule for Student Late Arrival days this coming school year as last, supervision will be made available at 9:10 AM (which was the elementary Student Late Arrival schedule for 2015-16). Please understand that transportation will not be provided at this earlier time.
