We are excited to announce that District 205 has adopted a new form of school-to-home communication called ParentSquare. This communications platform is designed to keep parents and guardians informed and encourage greater engagement and connection and replaces our previous system.
With a movement to “Ban the Straw,” Emerson Elementary students recognized a need for change in their own school. They created posters, worked to educate fellow classmates, began a petition campaign, and contacted district administrators. As a result, plastic straws are now used in Elmhurst D205 lunchrooms only if requested by students.
