On August 25, Churchville Middle School will be celebrating the sixth year of its Churchville Charge “fun”draising event. This exciting event features teams of four adults “racing” around Elmhurst City Centre solving clues and performing fun tasks at local businesses. Registration is open now through July 1 and spots are filling up quickly, so interested teams should visit this link to secure their spot.


The Churchville Charge is the primary fundraising event for Churchville Middle School and all money collected helps the Churchville PTA fund many educational and social events throughout the school year. Many local Elmhurst businesses, including Judith B Salon, Rosati’s Pizza and Tannins Wine Bar are taking part in
the event, either as a race stop location or through generous raffle donations and sponsorships. The event culminates in a huge post-race party at Fitz’s Spare Keys in downtown Elmhurst, and features a raffle, music, and more.

For more information about the Churchville Charge contact Event Chairs Megan Winton ( or Vicki Trajcevski (

During the month of May, District 205 Administrators made visits to all twelve K-12 schools to hold Future Focused meetings. Questions were collected at each of those meetings and through an exit survey administered to those who attended the large group meetings on May 12, 14, 23 and 30 at York, Churchville, Bryan and Sandburg. Those questions have formed the basis of the 55+ FAQ document that is linked from the Master Facility Plan page. This is a living document that will be expanded as more questions are submitted. Some questions which have been submitted are in the process of being answered and will be posted on that page in the near future.

A summary report of the May Future Focused sessions will be presented to the Board of Education at its June 19 meeting.


Churchville Middle School earned a Platinum distinction, the highest recognition possible, from the Midwest PBIS Network. Churchville is one of only three middle schools in Illinois and the only DuPage County middle school to earn the Platinum distinction. A group from New Zealand will visit Churchville when they are in Chicago for the National PBIS Leadership Forum in October.

The Midwest PBIS Network supports the implementation of Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) in state, local, and community agencies throughout the Midwest. The Network encourages promoting positive school behavior and preventing behavioral problems.


There is now a page on the York Community High School website dedicated to the Class of 2018. On it, you can view the programs from Awards Night, the York Scholarship Program and graduation, as well as photos from graduation day and a link to watch the full commencement ceremony.

Beverly Redmond has been named the new District 205 Executive Director of Communications and Public Relations, effective July 1, 2018. Ms. Redmond replaces Melea Smith, who will be retiring at the end of June following eight years of service in Elmhurst.


"I am pleased to join the District 205 leadership and communications team,” said Bev. “The opportunity to collaborate to showcase the creativity, learning, and growth of our talented teachers and students is an honor. Elmhurst is rich in tradition and academic excellence. Enthusiastically, I seek to support community engagement in our schools while serving as a liaison to families, alumni, residents, and supporters.


“My ultimate goals are to allow the diverse voices and accomplishments of the school community to shine, and to champion District 205’s powerful story of educational distinction nationwide."


Bev’s extensive school PR experience includes seven years as the Director of School and Community Relations at two large, highly-ranked school districts in the Bloomington, Indiana area. She also worked as the Assistant Director of Human Resources for the 14th largest school corporation in Indiana for an additional seven years. She has founded two independent public relations ventures and has experience with crisis public relations and social media presence. She holds a BA in Communications, with specialization in radio and television from Ball State University and Purdue University, Calumet.


"Bev is a highly accomplished professional who will combine the ability to support a vision for communications in District 205 and provide leadership consistent with the District's vision as a member of the senior leadership team,” said Superintendent Dr. David Moyer.


“I am relieved to find someone of Bev's ability to replace Ms. Smith, who has had a distinguished career in school communications. Bev has been integral in her two previous districts' successful passage of operating fund referenda, and has been a pillar of the communities in which she has served. She also has human resources experience and television, newspaper, and radio experience. Her eclectic background will serve us well as we continue to ensure that D205 is a 'National Leader in Future Ready Learning.'"


At its May 8 meeting, the Board of Education heard an update from the All Day Kindergarten Committee. In the state of Illinois, 79% of 859 districts are offering all-day programs, as of 2015.


“All Day Kindergarten educates the whole child in a developmentally appropriate manner,” said Lincoln Principal Jen Barnabee. “It enhances the legacy of Elmhurst by supporting students to reach their full potential. Children in full day classes excel in reading, number knowledge, writing and self-regulation versus their half-day peers. A full day program provides us the time to make the learning experience for our youngest students even better. They deserve the same robust, inter-disciplinary as the rest of our students receive.”
