7th and 8th Grade Social Dance Class
Social Dance Class is a long standing and hugely popular tradition in the D205 middle schools. The Sandburg PTA is thrilled to announce that dance class taught by Andy Fuzak from Let’s Dance will take place during eight evenings in March and April of 2024 at Sandburg. Stay tuned for further details!
This year's theme for Reflections, the national PTA arts program, has been announced! Your students are invited to create a piece of artwork in one of six categories that reflects this year's theme, "I am Hopeful Because…".Step 1: Each student may create an art piece(s) in the following categories:
- choreograph a dance
- produce a film
- write a poem or story
- compose a song
- take photos or
- create a piece of visual art
Step 2: Each student must explain how each piece of art relates to the theme.
Step 3: Turn in each entry to the school office by Friday, November 3rd.
Our students have been recognized at the local, state and national levels in recent years. This is a great way for your children to earn recognition for their artistic talents. Last year, more than 225 district students participated and were recognized locally, nine received State awards and three received National recognition. For more information and entry guidelines, visit the PTA Council website.

Reflections is a National PTA arts program offering students the chance to explore artistic creativity and earn recognition for their artwork.

All Spartan Bucks distributed last school year will no longer be accepted. Only current Spartan Bucks accumulated during the 2023-24 school year are valid for purchases.
Thank you Laura Fischer for all of your hard work organizing and updating the Spartan Store! Also, thank you to the Fischer family for donating the awesome decals for the Spartan Store made by Angel Fancy on Spring Road.
Each student will need a PE Uniform.
Sandburg is excited to announce District 205 Middle Schools' PE Uniforms for the 2023-24 school year are now available for purchase at the D205 Store. For your convenience, uniforms can be shipped directly to your home. Be sure to pre-order yours today!
Why Pre-Order? So your student can have the size he/she needs when the school year begins. Quantities are limited to leftover stock once school starts.
In addition, make sure your student has PE appropriate shoes each day. (Either wear gym shoes or keep some at school in the PE locker.)
For those who enjoy shopping, or for your reference, see the school supply lists for each grade.
In addition to what is noted on the lists, everyone needs to have a PE uniform (details to the left) and make sure your student has PE appropriate shoes each day.
The Summer Recreation Open House sponsored by Elmhurst District 205 and the Elmhurst PTA Council is held each year in late January / early February. More details can be found at the SROH Facebook Page.
