The testing window for the spring 2016 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 4 and continue through Friday, May 6. These state-required achievement tests are being given to all eligible students. Students in grades 3 – 8 will be tested in reading and mathematics. At the high school level, the assessment is course based. York students enrolled in English 9 or English 9H will take the English assessment. Students enrolled in Algebra AB will take the math assessment. Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students are testing within this window.

Last year, the PARCC assessment was given during two separate testing windows. This year it has been consolidated into a single testing window and the total assessment time has been reduced by approximately 90 minutes. The assessment is still aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards and maintains its focus on critical thinking, concept mastery, and writing skills.

The Illinois State Board of Education expects to receive PARCC assessment scores more quickly than last year. We anticipate that we will be able to share score reports in the fall. The complete results of these state tests will be also reported on the School Report Card in the fall. We will review state tests results along with other information to help us improve our school program.

If you have any questions about the administration of the PARCC assessment, please contact your child’s principal.

The Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program offers an exciting opportunity for all current 4th -8th grade band and orchestra 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 in order 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 Summer Instrumental Music Program will run from June 6 through July 8. (No class on Monday, July 4)
  • NEW this year, incoming 9th grade band and orchestra students may also register and participate in the sessions at York High School.
  • The registration fee is $92.00. The registration fee includes a Summer Instrumental Program T shirt.
  • Sessions for current elementary students (incoming 5th and 6th graders) will be held Monday through Thursday mornings at Sandburg Middle School. Each session is one hour. The final performances for the elementary sessions will be on FRIDAY morning, July 8.
  • Sessions for current middle school students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at York High School. The sessions at York also include an opportunity for students to participate in Jazz Band. See the attached program description for more details.

 

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!

 

Please see the attached summer instrumental music program description for more detailed course information, rehearsal times, and registration options. If you have questions, please contact me or your child’s band or orchestra director.

 

Registration for the Dist. 205 Summer Instrumental Music Program opened on March 7, 2016. You may register for the summer instrumental music program by using the Webstore (District) link on the District 205 website: www.elmhurst205.org. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 6, 2016.
