Blue & Gold - CHARGER NEWS

9/23/16

It was an action packed week at Churchville. Our Student Council threw a Welcome Party for our 6th graders. Mr. Grikmanis and I enjoyed a 45 minute barrage of whipped cream pies thrown at us with glee. They also had a great time dancing, face painting, crafting, and the famous bouncy houses and obstacle course. It was a fun afternoon!

Our 7th graders had an amazing trip to Camp Edwards in East Troy, WI despite some rain. They created lifetime memories with their friends and teachers on this trip. I hope you are following us on Facebook athttps://www.facebook.com/ChurchvilleMiddleSchool205 and on Twitter at @Churchville205 and @themrsreeder for amazing pictures of Charger life.

Parent-Teacher Conferences scheduling window is now open. Please sign up for conferences. The window will be live until Thursday, September 29th at 11:55 pm. Middle School Conferences are Wednesday, October 5, from 4:00 to 8:30 PM and Friday, October 7, from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM. There will be no school for middle school students only on October 7th.

Please be sure to visit the Family Resource Center during Parent Teacher Conferences.  It’s located immediately to your right upon entering through the main foyer doors.  The goals of Positive Family Support Program are to help families be more aware of the school’s expectations for positive behavior, to help families be informed about how to promote student positive behavior, and to give parents research-based information about parenting teenagers.

You will find a variety of tools in our Family Resource Center.  Some of these tools include community resources, academic resources, computer and printer, PowerSchool help, Internet access, and parenting brochures, books, and videos on the following topics: attendance, blended families, communication, encouragement, homework support, limit setting, managing behavior, monitoring/supervision, and problem-solving.  Many of our resources can also be found online at: http://churchville.elmhurst205.org/FRC. Contact us with any questions or stop in to check-out our resources!

Our Cross Country Conference Meet will be held at Blackhawk Middle School in Bensenville on Monday, September 26th. It is going to be an exciting meet to end the season. Come on out to support our Chargers!

Mark your calendar now for Thursday, September 29, when the Elmhurst District 205 Foundation will again be hosting a Family Night of basketball slams and jams featuring the Harlem Wizards at York High School. They will be playing against our own “D205 All Stars” made up of Elmhurst faculty and staff. Our very own Mrs. Regan and Mrs. Walker will represent Churchville at this fun event. Raffle prizes, concessions and awesome merchandise will be offered for sale. Proceeds benefit all Elmhurst public schools through Foundation programs. Get your tickets early to be sure you get the best seats in the house! Limited number of courtside and reserved seating available. Buy tickets now at www.harlemwizards.com.

Last fall, Elmhurst School District 205 launched a community engagement program called Focus 205 – a collaborative conversation between the community and the school district. Focus 205 continues this fall with two more community meetings on October 3 and December 5, beginning at 7:00 PM in the York Commons (invitation). In between those meetings, District 205 will be gathering community input through an online, interactive and completely confidential survey administered by a company called Thoughtexchange. What is Thoughtexchange? Watch their one-minute video to find out.

Additionally, I invite you to attend the Monday, October 24th meeting at Churchville Middle School at 7:00 p.m. This will be a follow up to the previous meetings and a chance to meet in a small group environment. The focus group meetings will have a short formal presentation, followed by some questions to which we will ask the attendees to react. There will be a moderator to help keep the discussion on track and a note taker to record comments. The feedback will help us shape the December 5 Community Engagement Session #6.

If your child has an appointment during the school day, we ask that you please send a note to the health officebefore school begins in the morning. Your child will then be given a pass to leave the classroom and be waiting in the main office. Thank you for your cooperation in limiting disruption to classroom instruction.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Respectfully,

Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Fue una semana llena de acción en Churchville. Nuestro consejo estudiantil lanzó una fiesta de bienvenida para el 6to grado. El Sr. Grikmanis y yo disfrutamos con delicia de un aluvión de 45 minutos de pasteles de crema batida lanzadas contra nosotros. También tuvieron un gran tiempo bailando, recibieron pinturas en la cara, artesanías, y las famosas casas inflables y pista de obstáculos. Fue una tarde de diversión!




Nuestro 7ª grado tuvo un sorprendente viaje en el campamento de Edwards en East Troy, WI, a pesar de algunas lluvias. Ellos crearon los recuerdos de su vida con sus amigos y profesores en este viaje. Espero que nos estén siguiendo en Facebook en https://www.facebook.com/ChurchvilleMiddleSchool205 y en Twitter en @Churchville205 y @themrsreeder para ver imágenes sorprendentes de la vida de Cargadores.

The Elmhurst Commission on Youth will host author Devorah Heitner in a presentation based on her newly-released book Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in the Digital Age on Tuesday, October 18 at 7 PM in the Sandburg Middle School auditorium,
 
Many parents feel that their kids are addicted, detached or distracted because of their digital devices. Media expert Dr. Devorah Heitner, however, believes that technology offers huge potential to our children—if parents guide them. In this presentation parents will learn about the digital world to help set kids up for a lifetime of success in a world fueled by technology. Hear about the concerns —and advantages—that teens experience thanks to this level of connection.
 
Dr. Heitner presents practical parenting "hacks" - quick ideas that can be implemented today to help understand and relate to "digital natives." Parents will be empowered to recognize that the wisdom they have gained throughout their lives is a relevant and urgently needed supplement to their children’s digital savvy and will better understand the skills necessary for managing the new challenges of parenting today. Dr Heitner offers a realistic and optimistic perspective, as well as practical advice, on helping kids navigate the friendship and identity issues that all young people face growing up in the digital age.
 
Dr. Heitner founded Raising Digital Natives to serve as a resource for schools and organizations wishing to cultivate a culture of responsible digital citizenship. Her book,
​ ​
Screenwise is a useful resource for parents looking for a guide to mentoring their children on navigating friendships, school, and social media. Dr. Heitner's curriculum, Connecting Wisely: Social Emotional Insights and Skills for Plugged in Kids is
​u​sed by schools around the country. She has a Ph.D. in Media/Technology and Soceity from Northwestern University. She is delighted to be raising her own digital native.

A full-day kindergarten option, implementation of a formal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program, the addition of a dual language option, systemic interventions and/or enrichments and the addition of instructional coaches – these were the top educational priorities identified in Phase I of Focus 205 – a collaborative conversation between the community and Elmhurst School District 205.

District 205 launched this community engagement program last fall. Phase 1 involved four town hall-style meetings held September through December of 2015, focusing on next generation learning, future-ready educational environments and utilization of resources for maximum student success. The Focus 205 Findings Report summarizes the work of this phase.

Phase 2 began last spring with a comprehensive Educational Alignment study; an update was presented to the Board of Education on May 24, 2016.

Focus 205 continues this fall with two more community meetings on October 3 and December 5, beginning at 7 PM in the York High School Commons. We hope you will join us as we recap the work done last year, celebrate student achievement in District 205 and begin exploring options that will support educational priorities in Elmhurst for years to come. RSVP at (630) 617-2300 ext. RSVP or at www.focus205.org. Please indicate if you require childcare (for ages 3-12).

In between those meetings, District 205 will be gathering community input through an online, interactive and completely confidential survey administered by a company called Thoughtexchange.
What is Thoughtexchange? Watch their one-minute video to find out.

This is your chance to share what you value about District 205 as a parent and/or community member, what your vision is for our students’ future-ready learning, as well as ask any questions or contribute any thoughts you might have regarding public education in Elmhurst. Watch for the link in early October. Join the conversation!
