The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. But education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education. Martin Luther King Jr.

As we honor Martin Luther King Jr. on Monday, I hope we take time to reflect on his message. We believe these words hold our truth. We want our students to achieve the highest academics and we also want to be a part of shaping them into adults with strong character and emotional resiliency. This is the true goal of education.

We hope to see you this evening as we host our annual Student/Faculty Basketball Fundraiser for the Marsha Amerio Scholarship. Our students will play the faculty in Churchville's Gold Gym tonight beginning at 7:00 pm. Our PTA will be hosting a tailgate for our 7th graders from 5:30 - 6:30 before the big game. We will have additional games between quarters, raffles, and food. This is held in honor of a well-loved former Churchville teacher, Marsha Amerio, who had a huge heart for her students. We raise money to help send students who have had special education services in our district so that they can attend college. Last year, we were able to give two scholarships to York High School seniors.  We look forward to this great community event!

Starting Tuesday, January 16th, any students who have turned in a parent agreement form to their homeroom teacher will be able to take their Chromebook home. On Tuesday, students with completed forms will be given a Chromebook cord to bring home. This cord should remain at home for the remainder of the school year. The cords do not need to be brought back and forth to school each day. If a student has not turned in an agreement form, they cannot take a Chromebook home. Families can choose to not have their student take their Chromebook home and instead leave it at school in their homeroom as they have always done. A copy of the agreement form and take-home information can be found
here. Please contact Mr. Cunningham if you have any questions.

Join the PTA Council on Tuesday, January 16, beginning at 7:00 PM in the York High School Commons, for an overview of the middle school recommendations for the 2018/19 school year and beyond. PTA Council officers will moderate a question-and-answer session between parents of middle school students and the District 205 administration.

The 2018 D205 Foundation Fundraising Gala, Empowering Futures, will take place on Saturday, February 10th beginning at 6:00 PM at the Hyatt Lodge in Oakbrook. The evening will feature a plated dinner, beverages, fundraising raffles and games, as well as a terrific mini and live auction. This year, the event has an added bonus with a post party that includes a deejay and dancing. Tickets are $175. Space is limited. Tables and sponsorship opportunities are available. More information and tickets are available at

The Foundation goal is to provide enhanced opportunities for students to learn and practice skills that will better prepare them for their future. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $1.9 million in educational enhancements that bring added resources and creative educational opportunities to the classrooms of Elmhurst District 205. We are grateful for their support.

Students in grades four through eight (4-8) from 10,000 schools across the United States will compete in the 2018 National Geographic Bee for a chance to win college scholarships and the glory of being the National Geographic Bee Champion. All social studies classes have already begun the qualifying rounds that will determine our final contestants for the school competition. Our school competition will take place on Thursday, January 18 at 8:00am. This event is open to the Churchville Community.

La función de la educación es enseñar a pensar intensamente y a pensar críticamente. Pero la educación que detiene eficacia puede ser la mayor amenaza para la sociedad. El más peligroso criminal puede ser el hombre dotado de razón, pero sin moral. Carácter más inteligencia - que es el objetivo de la verdadera educación. Martin Luther King Jr.

Como honramos a Martin Luther King Jr. el lunes, espero nos tomamos tiempo para reflexionar sobre su mensaje. Creemos que estas palabras son nuestra verdad.

Queremos recaudar dinero para ayudar a enviar a los alumnos que han tenido los servicios de educación especial en nuestro distrito, a fin de que puedan asistir a la universidad. El año pasado, pudimos ofrecer dos becas a York En el último año de la Secundaria. ¡Esperamos verlos en que este gran evento comunitario!
