Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 Superintendent Dr. David Moyer joins more than 400 school chiefs from across the state, representing 1.35 million students, in calling for the Illinois General Assembly to immediately pass a state budget. The grassroots initiative - called “Pass Illinois’ Budget!” - also urges lawmakers and Governor Rauner to improve the state’s education funding formula, and pay school districts millions of dollars owed in unpaid bills this year.
While K-12 education has benefited from a partially-funded state budget, Illinois schools, students, families, and communities will continue to suffer without a full state budget. Districts will continue to struggle if “Mandated Categoricals,” state payments which support special education, bilingual education, transportation, and other important services, do not get paid this year. District 205 has not received three categorical payments this year. Here are the largest funds due:
State revenue accounts for about 8.13 percent of District 205’s operating budget or $9,341,790. The General State Aid payments, which support general operating expenses, are being paid on time, however, the categorical payments are not. District 205 has not received any categorical payments this year with the exception of one late quarter payment from last fiscal year.
Hey Lincoln Parents,
It is time for the District 205 Art Show again at the Elmhurst Art Museum! Fifteen pieces of work from each elementary and junior high are chosen to take part in the display. A reception to open the show is on Friday, May 5thfrom 3:30 to 5:30. The work will be up in the museum from May 5th to May 7th and is open to the public. These dates also align with Art in the Park at Wilder Park! This is a great, free, event where your family can view 125 artists. Food, music, and children’s activities will also be sponsored by the museum and various corporations. Even if your kids aren’t in the District Art Show, this is a great opportunity for kids to support their classmates, show kids various kinds of art from other schools and professionals, and participate in free activities! I hope to see you there! A list of students participating in the show will be forth coming ;)

Hello Lincoln Families,
I can't believe the end of the school year is around the corner! We have covered so many fun activities so far and have a few more to finish up 2016-17 school year. Over the next few weeks students will be finishing up Fitnessgram testing, have station days, play games like t-ball, kickball, speedball, ultimate frisbee, and hopefully have a choice day.
It has been another great year in physical education and I hope that students will enjoy fun and active summers that include 60 minutes of movement a day. Please feel free to send me any questions!
Have an active and fun summer,
Dear 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade Parents,
Be sure to check out your student(s) Spanish Brag Night Activity!

The Elmhurst History Museum reminds second graders and their schools that the annual Ruth Strand Poster Contest will soon begin. Packets with contest information and entry forms will be sent to all District 205 second grade teachers during the first week of April. The 2017 deadline for poster entries is Friday, May 5, by 5:00 PM. Schools with ten or more participants will earn a $100 grant for the school’s library from the Elmhurst Heritage Foundation, so please be sure to take advantage of this special opportunity. For more information or to download entry forms, visit the History Museum’s website.
Winners and their families will be honored at a reception in the Elmhurst History Museum’s Education Center on Wednesday, May 24, at 4:00 PM. In addition, the contest winners will be invited to march in the Elmhurst Memorial Day Parade on Monday, May 29 and be recognized by the City Council on Monday, June 5. Posters will be displayed at the museum throughout the summer months, and winning entries will be exhibited at Elmhurst City Hall.
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 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.

Your child’s school will share more specific information about when students will be tested within this window.
