With snow in the forecast, now is the time to remind yourself of the various ways District 205 announces school closings and late start openings resulting from inclement weather. (And it’s also the time to think about childcare plans.) A late start or school closing announcement is made by 5:45 AM via the following channels:
 

• Information is first posted on the District's website at www.elmhurst205.org

• Talk205 phone calls, e-mail and SMS messages are sent out.

• A message is recorded on the District 205 Center’s main telephone line at (630) 834-4530.

• Notification is sent to the Emergency Closing Center, which broadcasts such information on WGN-AM (720), WBBM-AM (780), and CBS-TV (2), NBC-TV (5), ABC-TV (7), WGN-TV (9), FOX-TV, and CLTV cable. Visit the .web site at http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com

On a late start schedule day, buses will arrive at the usual pick-up points two hours later than their The late start schedule provides the flexibility to begin school two hours later than normal, allowing time for roads to be cleared and temperatures to rise. This alternative eliminates a situation where severe weather in the early morning leads to a decision to close schools for an entire day when it is not warranted.
regularly-scheduled time. Students who walk or drive to school should not arrive prior to two hours before their regular drop-off times. In the event a late start schedule is activated, class periods will be shortened, but dismissal times will not change.

Be sure to check out the Emergency Closings page of the District 205 website for more details.

It was a very exciting and busy week at Churchville. We smashed our goal of raising $800 for our annual Change a Life Fundraiser for our adopted families. Our homerooms raised $1200! While Mrs. Regan’s homeroom took first place and will be receiving coupons for a free snack at Henry’s Hut, we are all winners because of the generosity we saw from our students helping those in need.


We started our week with our MWAH! assembly. MWAH! is a student centered singing-dancing-improvisational group who uses performance to spread the message of hope dealing with many difficult issues. It was a very powerful assembly for both our students and staff. I hope you have the opportunity to talk to your children about the assembly. Thank you to our wonderful PTA for sponsoring this meaningful event for our students.


Our 7th grade boys basketball team took 2nd place in the finals of the Jackson Tournament on Monday. Both of our teams played exceptionally well and we look forward to a great season.


We have had an amazing turnout for the Hour of Code this week. Hour of Code is a global movement reaching over 100 million students in 180 countries to promote computer science. Students practiced and developed their coding skills using activities built for all experience levels and across subject areas. Thank you to Mr. Hartman and Mrs. Segiet for creating an exciting experience for our students.


As we head into our final 8 days of the semester, we have many special events scheduled. On Monday night, we have our Band and Orchestra Winter program. Wednesday is our Student Late Arrival while our teachers are receiving professional development in increasing the rigor of our instruction through questioning. Our sixth graders will end their week with their Field Trip to the Museum of Science and Industry where they will have multiple opportunities for hands on learning.


The District 205 Calendar Committee is seeking input from multiple stakeholder groups regarding the 2017-2018 calendar and scheduling of parent/teacher conferences. Please take a few moments to complete this survey. The survey will close at 11:59 pm on December 12, 2016.


Have a wonderful weekend!


Respectfully,


Gina Pogue Reeder, Principal

Fue una semana muy ocupada y emocionante en Churchville. Logramos el objetivo de recaudar $800 para cambiar una vida al recaudar fondos a nuestras familias de adopción. Nuestros salones de asignación recaudaron $1200! Mientras que la Sra. Regan se llevó el primer lugar del salón y va a recibir cupones para un snack en la tienda Henry's Hut, todos somos ganadores porque vimos la generosidad de nuestros estudiantes ayudando a los necesitados.

Empezamos nuestra semana con nuestro MWAH! MWAH, es un grupo de estudiantes centrados en canto-baile-de improvisación que utiliza el rendimiento para difundir el mensaje de esperanza que tratan muchos temas difíciles. Era una asamblea muy potente tanto para nuestros estudiantes y personal. Espero que tenga la oportunidad de hablar con sus hijos acerca de la Asamblea. Gracias a nuestro maravilloso PTA para patrocinar este evento significativo para nuestros estudiantes.

Nuestro equipo de 7mo grado niños de baloncesto, tomaron el segundo lugar en la final del Torneo de Jackson el lunes. Todos nuestros equipos jugaron excepcionalmente bien y esperamos una gran temporada.
