Bryan News


Our District 205 school community recently took part in an online learning/sharing process called Thoughtexchange. This was part of a larger, on-going conversation within the District called Focus 205. Through this community engagement program, we have been exploring options that will support educational priorities in Elmhurst for many years to come. 

Over 1,560 people contributed to the conversation, sharing more than 2,400 thoughts. The District has reviewed these thoughts and priorities and now wants to share the results with you.

Visit to learn about the top priorities in y our school and the top priorities for District 205. For more information regarding Focus 205, please visit


Your continued input will be used to identify community priorities, inform the Board of Education and guide the planning for the future of Elmhurst District 205.

Please plan to join us for the next Focus 205 meeting on Wednesday, February 1, from 7 to 9 PM in the York High School Commons. Again, thank you for contributing to the success of our schools and District 205. Your participation in the process is invaluable!

Plan to attend Focus 205 Community Engagement Session #6, Vision for the Future, scheduled for Wednesday, February 1, from 7 to 9 PM in the York High School Commons. Results of the fall Thoughtexchange survey will be shared, along with facility scenarios to address District 205's needs for the next 50 years, including a discussion of Lincoln and Field elementary schools, all-day kindergarten and increased STEM opportunities for our students. RSVPs appreciated, but not required. Childcare available for ages 3-12.

Through the Focus 205 series of meetings, community members have the opportunity to help shape the direction of the District by providing input regarding key issues that need to be addressed. Only with diverse and informed voices can an effective master plan for our District be created, implemented and executed.

Effective parenting promotes age-appropriate problem-solving. The coping skills that enable problem-solving unfold in normal developmental cycles. At each stage of a child’s development, new challenges create struggle that ignites new abilities. Sometimes, this growth enables the child to connect more successfully with others. Other times, kids are empowered to explore and learn. As they test their limits, an increased capacity for self-control evolves. As they move toward adolescence, these functions support independence and autonomy.

Sponsored by the Churchville Middle School Positive Family Support Program, this series of workshops are designed to help parents understand these normal developmental cycles and respond effectively to their children’s struggles. The first workshop was held January 10 on the topic of coping skills. Two more remain:

  • Tuesday, February 7; 9-10am – “Problem Solving” – Parents will identify targeted problem-solving approaches based on their child’s developmental circumstances.
  • Tuesday, March 14; 6-7pm – “Parenting Strategies” – Based on feedback from the first two sessions, the presenters will facilitate role-play education to teach and model parenting strategies to situation-based challenges.

The presentations will take place at Churchville Middle School in the MediaScape Lab, 155 Victory Parkway, Elmhurst and all are welcome. They are led by Katie McDougall and Steve Ritter, both Licensed Clinical Social Workers. Ms. McDougall is a former school social worker and Mr. Ritter is the Managing Director of the Midwest Institute & Center for Workplace Innovation.

Come meet with Superintendent Dr. Dave Moyer in an informal setting. This year’s “Coffee With the Superintendent” opportunities are again being organized by the PTA Council and are open to any interested District 205 parent or community resident. There will be no agenda during the approximate one-hour conversation. The second coffee will be held on Wednesday, January 25 at 10:00 AM hosted by Jackson Elementary School, 925 S. Swain Avenue, Elmhurst.

Superintendent Coffees will also be held on Monday, February 13 at 1:30 PM, hosted by Fischer Elementary School, and Wednesday, April 19 at 10:00 AM, hosted by Jefferson Elementary School.
