Happy New Year and Welcome Back, Elmhurst District 205 Community!
This week has been such a great start to the new year! We were so excited to welcome students back to our learning spaces. As we begin this new year together as a school community, I want us to remain focused on our organizational mission to educate, engage, and empower and our vision of preparing our students for college, career, and life.
It is always so inspiring to see students and staff return from break engaged, empowered and prepared to dive right into the important work of educating and learning. It is equally rewarding to see the strength of the many meaningful relationships that shine through the smiles and excitement as our students and staff are reunited. These relationships are imperative to the success of both students and staff because, as I shared before break, though we can’t plan for everything, together we can weather anything.
May will be here before we know it, and these next three months present the opportunity for so much continued learning and growing. As we enter into this winter season, I look forward to many more celebrations of the amazing learning that is happening throughout our schools, supporting all of the winter extracurricular activities that take place throughout the District and seeing our students shine on stage at York Theatre’s winter musical - Please join me in thanking Elmhurst University for graciously hosting us this year as we complete the renovations to the brand new theatre at York .
Looking forward to a new year of continued community partnerships, strong student outcomes and the many good things to come in 2024!
