The Harlem Wizards are back in Elmhurst on Saturday, September 30th to entertain the crowd with high-energy exhibition play and audience participation. Cheer on our team of Elmhurst school district principals and teachers as they challenge the Wizards in a basketball game that is sure to include wild antics and lots of laughs. The event will be held at York High School beginning at 5:00 PM. Concessions, merchandise and raffle tickets will be available for purchase. Proceeds from this family-friendly fundraiser support District 205 Foundation programs and enhancements that benefit all Elmhurst public school students. Click here to learn more and guarantee a seat at this popular Saturday event.


The Elmhurst Commission on Youth, along with Linden Oaks Behavioral Health, part of Edward-Elmhurst Healthcare, will sponsor a presentation outlining when student anxiety becomes a problem. Hear about the effects of anxiety on learning, sources of anxiety in schools, and school refusal. Treatment requires a collaborative approach that includes the student, school staff, parents and mental health professionals. Dr. Laura Koehler, PsyD. Licensed Clinical Psychologist at Linden Oaks, leads the discussion on August 29, beginning at 7:30 PM (note change of time) at Bryan Middle School.



It was a great week back at school!  Thank you to all for welcoming me to the Jackson community with such kindness and warmth.  I am so excited to be here!  Students settled in quickly and are enjoying making new friends.  The vibe throughout our school is so positive!  I know this year is going to bring amazing things to each of your children.


On Monday, the District welcomed Dr. Bill Daggett to speak to staff and the community.  His message resonated with us at Jackson!  He inspired us to start to think differently about our teaching and learning.  Throughout the year, we hope to continue to build a culture in which students take risks as we insert more innovative teaching strategies into the curriculum.  The staff is going to continue our professional learning and we will share with you along the way.


Please send a snack with your child daily.  According to our new district food policy, this should be a fruit or vegetable only.   With many severe food allergies present in our school, we kindly ask that you follow this policy.


The eclipse will take place on Monday.  For safety, we will be staying inside for during recesses between 11:30am-2pm. If you are taking your child home for lunch on Monday, you will need to come into the office to sign them out.  This is an extra safety precaution to make sure that no child is unattended outside.  Our afternoon kindergarteners will come inside the building immediately upon their arrival at school.


On Wednesday, August 30, we will have our first student late arrival of the school year.  As a reminder, there is no morning supervision until 9:30am.  Please do not drop your child off at school earlier than 9:30am as there will be no supervision until then.
