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 Summer Instrumental Music Program will run from June 12 through July 14. (No class on July 3 or 4.)
  • The registration fee is $92.00. The registration fee includes a Summer Instrumental Program T shirt.
  • Rehearsals for current elementary band and orchestra students (incoming 5th and 6th graders) will be held Monday through Thursday mornings at Bryan Middle School. Each rehearsal is one hour. There will be a rehearsal on FRIDAY, July 7th (in place of the July 3rd holiday). The final performances will be on FRIDAY, morning, July 14.
  • Rehearsals for current middle school band and orchestra students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at York High School. There will be a rehearsal on FRIDAY, July 7th (in place of the July 4th holiday). Middle School Summer Band and Orchestra students may also participate in Jazz Band. The final performance will be on THURSDAY, July 13th.
  • NEW this year, current middle school choir students (incoming 7th, 8th, and 9th grade students) may participate in the summer choir at York High School on Monday and Wednesday evenings (No Class on Monday, July 3rd). Middle school students who register for summer band or orchestra may also enroll in choir at no additional cost. The final performance will be on THURSDAY, July 13th.

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!

Registration for the Dist. 205 Summer Music Program began on March 20, 2017. You may register for the summer music program by using the Webstore (District) link, also found on the District 205 website: www.elmhurst205.org. The deadline for registration is Friday, May 12, 2017. More details can be found on the Summer School website.

The testing window for the spring 2017 administration of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessment in District 205 will begin on Monday, April 3 and continue through Friday, April 28. These state-required achievement tests in reading and mathematics are being given to all eligible students in grades 3 – 8. Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students will be tested within this window.

In addition to the PARCC assessment, state and federal regulations require each school to assess achievement in science for students in 5th grade, 8th
grade and high school biology. The Illinois Science Assessment will be administered in each school between Monday, March 13 and Friday, March 24. This assessment is approximately one hour in length and is aligned to the Illinois Learning Standards for Science.

We anticipate being able to share score reports in the fall. The complete results of these state tests will be also reported on the Illinois 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 these assessments, please contact your child’s principal.

The York High School Key Club is again sponsoring a “Soles for Kids” shoe drive. Through the generosity of District 205 families, we have successfully collected over 8,000 pairs of shoes over the past six years. Our drive will start Monday, March 6, 2017   Edison will have a collection bin in the vestibule by the office for the month of March.

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 Indian Reservations in the United States. Many times families in these places need to pick between shoes and food, so we aim to provide the shoes for free.

For more information on the charity itself, such as where the shoes are going or how they are getting there, we’ve attached the link of the Soles for Kids website for your convenience.

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!
