Dear Field Families:

It was a busy end of the year at Field School. We could not have planned a single additional event since the schedule was completely filled. The students loved the Ninja Warrior Course, Field Day, the Laser Assembly, Fifth Grade Performance and the PBIS Store.

Thank you so very much for the farewell reception. I appreciated you taking the time to stop in after school. I know many of you waited to talk to me during the reception. The staff surprised me with a heartwarming video, during the end-of-year award’s assembly, featuring my favorite thing about Field – the students. When I wasn’t crying during the video, I was laughing about the clever things the students said about me. I am still shocked that not one student gave away the surprise. Thank you again for making my last three years so special. The Field students, parents and staff members will forever be in my heart. Please feel free to keep in touch. My home email is My last day at Field School will be June 30.

I have met with and spoken frequently with Mrs. Thomas, the incoming principal, over the last couple weeks to discuss various operational procedures. She will be starting in the district July 1. I feel at peace handing over the position to her. Like you I was nervous about who was going to replace me, as I love this school with all my heart. I can assure you I have the upmost faith in Mrs. Thomas. She has high expectations, a strong knowledge base for curriculum and best practice. She will continue to move the school forward. In doing so, I am sure Mrs. Thomas has a variety of great ideas to implement. Her experience includes having been a classroom teacher which in my opinion is critical to the role of a principal. The school is in great hands! We plan to stay in contact with one another and I am only a phone call away if Mrs. Thomas has additional questions.

Congratulations first graders. You are amazing.

New Playground Equipment – The School Board approved the playground equipment addition. Hopefully the equipment will be installed in July. Thank you to the Field PTA for this generous donation. This will give our students more options when they are outside for recess.

Kindergarten Assignments – All elementary school principals will be sending home letters today announcing morning or afternoon kindergarten placements. At this point I am unable to honor all the morning requests due to very few requests for the afternoon section. I did the best I could. The individual kindergarten teacher assignments will be announced in August when students district-wide are notified of their classroom teachers. Please note that when the kindergarten letter was created, Curriculum Night was scheduled for August 24. The district changed the date to Tuesday, August 29 due to a middle school conflict.

Music News – Please review from Mrs. Lukritz.

American Ninja Warrior Course – The students loved the American Ninja Warrior course and the weather was perfect for this special reward. Flip Side Academy staff did an excellent job working with our students. I was especially impressed with the manner in which they assisted our students with special needs. They were very patient, kind and protective of their safety while the students completed the obstacle course. Thank you again to our generous PTA for supporting this activity.

As always if you have questions or concerns don’t hesitate to contact me at or at 630-834-5313. Have a safe and peaceful summer. May you and your family enjoy making special memories together. Blessings to all!

Mrs. Poole
Field School Principal


Our District 205 Belief Statements:

  • All students must learn and grow.
  • We accept shared responsibility for student growth.
  • We make decisions based on what is best for students.
  • We are a future-focused community of learners.

Elmhurst District 205 is thrilled to welcome Dr. Bill Daggett of the International Center for Leadership in Education to the community on Monday, August 14. In the afternoon, Dr. Daggett will be the keynote speaker at our opening faculty meeting. That evening, we cordially invite all local parents, community members, school board members, business and community leaders, legislators, and area educators to share with us a unique and exciting opportunity to experience his important message first hand. The festivities begin at 7:00 p.m. in the York High School Commons.

Dr. Daggett will discuss the concepts of rigor, relevance and relationships and share some important concepts about his organization's Rigor and Relevance Framework. Most importantly, attendees will be challenged to think about the role of public education as it relates to this country's future and the world economy.  I predict that if you are able to join us, you will never think about "school" the same way again.

Clear your calendars now!  I hope to see you then!

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!
