PTA Council

The District 205 PTA Council

The Elmhurst District 205 PTA Council is comprised of PTA Presidents from each of our local PTAs. 

The PTA Council provides an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and information between the local PTAs within District 205.  The Council disseminates Illinois and National PTA updates, sponsors an annual community forum in conjunction with the District 205 Board of Education, organizes an annual open house of area summer camps for children, and raises funds for scholarships awarded to York High School graduating Seniors each year.
