Virtual Backpack


In an effort to create a more eco-friendly environment, District 205 no longer distributes paper flyers. The Virtual Backpack advertises community wide events open to all District 205 students. Flyers are screened and approved for distribution by the District 205 Office of Communications and Public Relations as a service to the community. Approved flyers are posted on this page. During the school year, the link to this page is included in Talk205.

The Virtual Backpack is updated weekly.

Note: All events listed below are not sponsored by District 205 unless otherwise noted.
