Parent-Teacher Conference
We are excited about another opportunity to connect with our families through Parent-Teacher Conferences. Before we open the conference signup portal for families at 6 a.m. on November 12, 2020, we wanted to send out instructions to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to have their account ready to go. While we know you may contact the teachers at any point in the year, we appreciate the opportunity to meet our families.  This is our time to talk about specific concerns that you may have regarding your children’s academic performance.

This year, conferences will be held remotely. Each appointment will have a Zoom link attached to it. After you sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences, you should email or download your schedule from Power PTC and use those Zoom links. When families click on the link, they will be placed in a waiting room. At your assigned time, the teacher will admit you to the conference. We ask that you name yourself within Zoom in a way that makes it easier for the teachers to identify you. For example, if you could use “William (Jennifer S’s Dad)”. 

Below are links to resources to help you as you prepare to sign up with your student's teachers. We look forward to seeing everyone virtually for Parent-Teacher Conferences next week.

Dear Fischer Parents,

In order to provide additional class time devoted to grade-level reading, we plan to reassign the 30-minute science and social studies block as additional reading or math time. We are not cutting science and social studies out completely; we are just making the necessary time for our relentless focus on every student achieving grade-level reading skills - the learning skills that empower students for their entire lives. To adjust, we will continue to enhance our reading and writing blocks with science and social studies content and students will still encounter science and social studies in ELA and Math. These changes do not apply to our dual classrooms because they follow units of study where all subjects are already embedded in one topic. Again, these changes DO NOT apply to our dual classrooms because we do units of study where all subjects are embedded into one.

Our D205 Mission is to accelerate learning for all students. We believe that: 

  • ALL students must learn and grow
  • We accept shared responsibility for student growth
  • We make decisions based on what is best for students
  • We are a future-focused community of learners 

Our reading curriculum integrates significant time for science and social studies content. Students are reading about these topics on a consistent basis in their K-5 classrooms as part of the common curriculum and among the individual book choices students make. We will not report on science and social studies achievement on the standards-based report card at the elementary level during any grading period this year.

Sincerely,

Irene Villa Principal

Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 will transition from hybrid to remote instruction for two weeks beginning October 21-November 4, 2020, implementing an Adaptive Pause in accordance with IDPH guidelines. The pause to in-person instruction comes because DuPage County has entered into Substantial Community Transmission. COVID-19’s presence in the community has increased to a level that stands to expose our families and staff to health risks. Expand this story for next steps.

Remote Learning Update for First Semester

On Monday, November 30, approximately 200 of District 205’s most vulnerable Special Education students returned to in-person learning. For all other student populations, remote learning will continue through the end of the first semester. Open this story for more information and details.
