  • Tuesday, August 29th - Curriculum Night 6 to 7:30 PM

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.



Parents or guardians are expected to schedule vacations during the summer or on school holidays.  In instances where absences are requested for vacation, parents/guardians must submit a written request to the student’s principal two weeks in advance (see attached).  The absence will be considered unexcused if this procedure is not followed.  Students approved for a vacation will be expected to complete missing class work after returning.  Students will be given one day for each day missed to make up work.  The school will not provide class work or assignments in advance.

Poster Contest Winners!

A student at Field School was the Grand Prize Winner for the Annual Elmhurst “Learn Not to Burn” Poster Contest for 2016. The contest is part of the Fire Safety Program presented to all fourth grade students in District 205 as well as private schools in Elmhurst. Students work on their poster designs under the guidance of their art teachers. The theme of the winning poster was "Practice Your Escape Route". This winning poster was published and distributed throughout Elmhurst before Fire Prevention Week in October. It's an honor that a Field School student's creativity and hard work created such an important message about fire safety. Congratulations!
