Dear Falcon Families,

5Essentials Survey The statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for parents to share thoughts about your experiences with our school. This survey provides critical input to help develop school improvement plans. The survey takes about 10 minutes. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. If you completed this survey at Field during conferences at the kiosk, you do not need to complete it again. Additionally, District 205 has chosen to provide the optional 5Essentials parent survey. If at least 20 percent of Field parents complete this survey, the parent input data will be reported on Field’s State Report Card.

To take the parent survey please click here and select the parent survey link. You will need to enter the county (DuPage) and school name (Field). A link is also provided on the District 205 website. I hope you will participate.

Heifer International Fundraiser – The following fundraising project was brought to the attention of Mrs. Thomas by a group of fifth graders. Since this is the season of giving and families throughout the world need assistance, the students wanted to propose this project as a means to give back. The students are planning to donate to Heifer International, an organization that buys food and clothing for families in need. Open this link to learn more about Heifer International and their mission to end hunger and poverty.

The following activities will be taking place the last week before winter break to bring attention to this fundraising project:

  • Monday, December 17 (Field Spirit Day) - Students can wear Field spirit wear to school or any blue clothing. The Falcons will be coming around to each grade level!
  • Tuesday, December 18 (Favorite Stuffed Animal Day) - Students should bring their favorite stuffed animal to school. Please be sure this special friend fits into their backpack.
  • Wednesday, December 19 (Pajama Day) - Wear your favorite pajamas to school today.
  • Thursday, December 20 (Wish for the World Day) - Students will write a wish they have for the world on a piece of paper in their classrooms. These wishes will be put on a school holiday tree for all to see!
  • Friday, December 21 (Kindness Day) - Make someone’s day bright! Wear colorful clothing and do something kind for another person today.

Any donations will be greatly appreciated! Funds will be collected throughout the week inside your child’s classroom. Only coins and cash will be collected (checks unfortunately cannot be accepted). Thank you very much for your generosity and concern for this project!

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!
