District News

Two District 205 students were honored with “Yes I Can” awards from the Illinois Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), which recognizes children and youth with exceptionalities who have demonstrated their determination and achievements in multiple ways.

The awards were presented at the recent CEC Convention, held virtually. Paul Rosland, a student at the newly opened District 205 Bridges Transition Center, was nominated because of his leadership skills and advocacy for transition services. He was honored under the Transition category.

Franco Bibbiano, a freshman at York was honored under the School Achievement category and recognized for his industrial technology and woodworking skills.

Howard Fry, an Educational Assistant at Sandburg Middle School, former attorney and a U.S. Navy Veteran, received a touching sendoff from students and colleagues as a tribute to his Honor Flight to Washington D.C. 

Fry took his Honor Flight on Wednesday, October 27, 2021. To honor and thank him for his service, the entire Sandburg community lined the halls, cheering for and giving high-fives to Fry. As a grand finale, the Sandburg Middle School Band and Orchestra played “Anchors Away”. Because of the impact that Fry's Honor Flight had on the school, Sandburg students will raise money to sponsor an individual to go on a future Honor Flight.

Ever wonder what it would be like to get your old high school team together?

Rob Wagner, Assistant Principal for Athletics at York High School, wondered the same thing. Except he pondered how to get the hundreds of football alums together who continue to support York and the athletic program.

With the last varsity game of the year scheduled last Friday against Oak Park – River Forest (OP-RF), where their coach John Hoerster also happens to be a York football alumni, it was the perfect opportunity to recognize York High School football alums. As a result, the inaugural York Football Alumni Recognition Program was born.

“York has an incredible football alumni fan base who support us and cheer us on at games,” said Assistant Principal for Athletics Rob Wagner. “We wanted to honor and recognize them for their commitment to York and this game was a great opportunity.”

As a service to parents, staff and community members, District 205 hosted a webinar Oct. 20, 2021 on COVID in children and Vaccines for School Age Children. The webinar featured three local physicians who specialize in infectious disease and immunology: Dr. Mark Dworkin, Board Certified Infectious Disease Specialist and Professor of Epidemiology; Dr. Zach Rubin, Board Certified Pediatrician and Board Certified Allergist and Immunologist and Dr. Mia Taormina, Board Certified Infectious Disease Specialist. They spoke on the epidemiology of COVID in children, offered statistics and clinical cases on long COVID in children and talked about vaccine development and safety.

The webinar was recorded and can be replayed here.
