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.
The final calendar of the 2018-19 school year was approved by the Board of Education at their April 23 meeting.
