The annual Illinois 5Essentials Survey is administered online by the University of Chicago, on behalf of the Illinois State Board of Education. The State will only provide survey results for individual schools if a school has at least 20 percent of parents take the survey. If you have children attending more than one school, District 205 asks that you complete the survey for each school. Each survey takes about ten minutes. All survey responses will be kept confidential.

To take this short survey:

  1. Visit Parent Survey Illinois 5Essentials at
  2. Begin typing and then select Dupage County as the location.
  3. Begin typing the school's name into the school field and then select your child’s school from the drop-down box.

Thank you in advance for your participation in supporting our schools' continuous improvement process. The survey will remain open until March 11, 2016.


Hoops for Sandburg was organized by Sandburg PTA to raise funds to replace the backboards at Sandburg Middle School. The Sandburg gym is used by many student organizations in Elmhurst, as well as students of Sandburg Middle School. From the stands, the backboards block the view of those supporting the students participating in activities on the court. Additionally, the backboards are not shatter resistant and do not have the ability to be raised or lowered.


The goal is to raise enough money to provide height adjustable backboards to meet the needs of all students who use the gym and replace side baskets so that all spectators can see fully, and support the action on the court. A GoFundMe account has been set up to accept donations. If you are interested in donating, please use our campaign link:


Please read the following guidelines attached for snack and food at school.  The attachments included in this message are  the district as well as Sandburg Middle School guidelines.
