The Elmhurst District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra students and 6th – 8th grade choir students to continue with instrumental music instruction in June and July. Regular practice during the summer months is critically important for band and orchestra students to reinforce the concepts and skills that they have learned and practiced during the school year. Moreover, learning and playing music is an activity that should be enjoyed year ‘round.
The District 205 Summer Instrumental Program is designed to accommodate students who go on vacation and/or participate in other summer activities. Students who can only attend part of the summer program are still strongly encouraged to register and attend whenever they can! Students who practice their instruments during the summer are much more likely to experience continued success in band and orchestra. We strongly encourage your son or daughter to participate as much as he/she is able!

The York High School Key Club is again sponsoring a “Soles for Kids” shoe drive and is asking for your support and assistance with this endeavor. Through the generosity of District 205 families, they have successfully collected over 8,000 pairs of shoes over the past six years. The drive will begin on Monday, March 6th and conclude on Friday, May 12th. Look for collection bins in our school foyers. Soles for Kids is a charity organization that collects gently used shoes and sends them to needy children and adults in Africa, as well as to Indian Reservations in the United States.
At its February 28 meeting, the Board of Education approved the 2017-18 school year calendar, which includes parent-teacher conference dates/times; student late arrival dates/times; and quarter/trimesters/semesters. It is posted at www.elmhurst205.org/events_calendar.

Scenes From Edison's Geography Bee
Edison Oil Spill Challenge
In this video, Henry and Tatum discuss what they learned from participating in the Oil Spill Challenge in the Edison library. As the 4th grade biome unit concluded, Mrs. Greska and Mrs. McGinnis discussed the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and subsequent oil spill with the 4th graders. This catastrophe caused over two hundred million gallons of oil to spill into the Gulf of Mexico, severely impacting the environment, ocean animals, plant life, and the economy and tourism in the region. The 4th graders learned the problems that needed to be solved, and the tools used in real life to help in the recovery to clean this up. Edison 4th graders were challenged to use tools designed to simulate what was done in 2010 to protect the coastline, tend to the oil covered animals and clean up an oil spill. Check out what Tatum and Henry have to say!
