The Elmhurst Commission on Youth will host author Devorah Heitner in a presentation based on her newly-released book Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in the Digital Age on Tuesday, October 18 at 7 PM in the Sandburg Middle School auditorium,
 
Many parents feel that their kids are addicted, detached or distracted because of their digital devices. Media expert Dr. Devorah Heitner, however, believes that technology offers huge potential to our children—if parents guide them. In this presentation parents will learn about the digital world to help set kids up for a lifetime of success in a world fueled by technology. Hear about the concerns —and advantages—that teens experience thanks to this level of connection.
 
Dr. Heitner presents practical parenting "hacks" - quick ideas that can be implemented today to help understand and relate to "digital natives." Parents will be empowered to recognize that the wisdom they have gained throughout their lives is a relevant and urgently needed supplement to their children’s digital savvy and will better understand the skills necessary for managing the new challenges of parenting today. Dr Heitner offers a realistic and optimistic perspective, as well as practical advice, on helping kids navigate the friendship and identity issues that all young people face growing up in the digital age.
 
Dr. Heitner founded Raising Digital Natives to serve as a resource for schools and organizations wishing to cultivate a culture of responsible digital citizenship. Her book,
ā€‹ ā€‹
Screenwise is a useful resource for parents looking for a guide to mentoring their children on navigating friendships, school, and social media. Dr. Heitner's curriculum, Connecting Wisely: Social Emotional Insights and Skills for Plugged in Kids is
ā€‹uā€‹sed by schools around the country. She has a Ph.D. in Media/Technology and Soceity from Northwestern University. She is delighted to be raising her own digital native.

A full-day kindergarten option, implementation of a formal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program, the addition of a dual language option, systemic interventions and/or enrichments and the addition of instructional coaches – these were the top educational priorities identified in Phase I of Focus 205 – a collaborative conversation between the community and Elmhurst School District 205.

District 205 launched this community engagement program last fall. Phase 1 involved four town hall-style meetings held September through December of 2015, focusing on next generation learning, future-ready educational environments and utilization of resources for maximum student success. The Focus 205 Findings Report summarizes the work of this phase.

Phase 2 began last spring with a comprehensive Educational Alignment study; an update was presented to the Board of Education on May 24, 2016.

Focus 205 continues this fall with two more community meetings on October 3 and December 5, beginning at 7 PM in the York High School Commons. We hope you will join us as we recap the work done last year, celebrate student achievement in District 205 and begin exploring options that will support educational priorities in Elmhurst for years to come. RSVP at (630) 617-2300 ext. RSVP or at www.focus205.org. Please indicate if you require childcare (for ages 3-12).

In between those meetings, District 205 will be gathering community input through an online, interactive and completely confidential survey administered by a company called Thoughtexchange.
What is Thoughtexchange? Watch their one-minute video to find out.

This is your chance to share what you value about District 205 as a parent and/or community member, what your vision is for our students’ future-ready learning, as well as ask any questions or contribute any thoughts you might have regarding public education in Elmhurst. Watch for the link in early October. Join the conversation!

“Welcome to Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205” premiered at elementary and middle school Curriculum Night events last week. It features the voices of D205 students who are also members of the Elmhurst Children’s Theatre. The two-minute video is an overview of the District’s educational priorities, punctuated with images of our students and staff at work and play. It reminds viewers that District 205 is a student-centered, future-focused community which believes all students can and must learn and grow.

Thanks go to the principals and staff of York High School, Churchville Middle School, as well as Lincoln and Field Elementary Schools, for making time in their busy May schedules to accommodate the camera crew from Motion Source. Produced by the Communications Office, the video is posted above and can also be found on the District 205 YouTube channel.
