York High School has been competing in the Capitol Hill Challenge for the last few years. This year, one of the York teams finished second in the country. The Capitol Hill Challenge is a national program that teaches middle and high school students the importance of saving and investing through a mock stock market game, while also giving them a better understanding of government, according to a release from Challenge sponsor SIFMA.

"Schools are awarded 10 teams which we have traditionally split between our Honors Personal Finance course and our Economics Club," said York Business Department Chair Jim Borel. "This year, 4 of our 10 teams finished in the top 1 percent of the 3,939 stock teams participating in the Capital Hill Challenge. The second place team in the country consisted of seniors Burke Corcoran, Kevin Lipkin, Mark Leali and junior Jason Kentra. This team was part of Tamra Carl's Economics Club." An awards reception will be held on June 21 in the Rayburn House Office Building on Capital Hill in Washington, DC.

In the Challenge, teams invest a hypothetical $100,000 in listed stocks, bonds and mutual funds, learning the value of the capital markets as they work together to maximize the return of their portfolios.

"Tamra does a great job and should be commended for our national second place finish. I will be accompanying the team on the trip to Washington, DC from June 20-22. Last year, we finished in ninth place in the country with a CHC team from the Honors Personal Finance course. This a great opportunity for our students to learn investing strategies. The trip is also a great opportunity for our students see our democracy in action," said Mr. Borel.

"I also want to note that this is a special accomplishment because three years ago members of this team were in line to make the top 10 in the nation and got bumped out the last night of the competition. It was their goal every year since then to place in the top 10," Mrs. Carl said. "I am so proud of them for working hard to strategically trade up until the very end of the competition, showing leadership to the Economics Club at our weekly meetings and meeting their objective!"

Middle and high school students from all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia participated in this year’s competition. Montgomery Area High School in Pennsylvania was this year's winner of the stock market game.

 

Pictured below are Burke Corcoran, Jason Kentra, Mark Leali and Kevin Lipkin.

Paying for Textbooks, Chromebooks and Fees
Textbooks, Chromebooks, fees and yearbooks can all be purchased in one transaction per student with cash, check, or credit card (MasterCard, Discover or Visa). Families with multiple students, will have to bring multiple checks.

 

Financial Assistance Information
There are several options available for families in need of financial assistance:

  • District Financial Assistance for Student Fees and Books – Families that meet guidelines established by the District can receive assistance with fees, Chromebook and book costs.  To receive assistance, the Request for Financial Assistance form must be completed and returned to the District Office with the required supporting documentation. After July 1 these forms can be found on the District 205 registration website or in the York Principal’s Office.

Additional information about the York Registration process:
 

Yearbook Photos
All 9th, 10th and 11th graders will have a yearbook picture taken during book sales. Students should dress appropriately.  Make-up dates are September 13 and 14 in the Commons.

 

Student IDs
Each student will receive an ID during registration which must be worn by the student at all times. The ID also serves as an activity pass.

Student IDs are also required to ride the bus and enter the cafeteria.

 

Student Schedules
All students will receive their schedules during book sales on August 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11.

 

Physicals
Incoming freshmen, transfer students and athletes must have current physicals. Forms are available on the York website and at www.elmhurst205.org. An athletic physical does not meet the requirements for a Freshman Physical.

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!
 

Dr. David Moyer
Superintendent

As we welcome your child to York High School in the fall, we want to take this opportunity to explain the health requirements for incoming freshman students.  Illinois State law requires that all incoming freshmen have an updated physical examination and proof of receiving all required immunizations on file. The physical examination must be on either the state-approved certificate of health form; the approved form provided by some physicians’ offices; or on the form found on the district website, www.elmhurst205.org. Please note that the IHSA Sports Physical form is not acceptable for entry into 9th grade.

In order for your child to be in compliance with the physical examination and immunization requirements, the following MUST be completed as directed:
● All required immunizations must be documented on the front or first page of the form. The immunization chart must be filled in with correct dates and signed and dated by a physician, RN, or Medical Assistant.
● The child’s Health History questions (yes/no questions at the top of the second page) must be completed, signed, and dated by the parent/guardian.
● The Physical Examination is to be completed, signed, and dated by the physician. Please make sure that the physician has checked the boxes at the bottom of this page indicating whether or not your child can participate in physical education and interscholastic sports.

Please note: Incomplete examination forms and incomplete immunization records will be returned to you for completion. Your child will not be compliant with Illinois State Law until the necessary documentation is on file. The completed physical form must be on file in the York Health Services Office by the 1st day of school. Students who do not have a completed 9th grade physical and immunization record on file by the first day of school, will be placed on a list for possible exclusion. District 205 will exclude students from school according to state law, at the minimum date set forth by the Illinois State Board of Education. Once the student is excluded, the student will not be allowed to attend school, or participate in or attend any school functions, including athletic or extracurricular activities, until the required physical examination and immunization documentation is received in the Health Services Office.

 

Please submit completed physicals to the York High School Health Services Office. They may be mailed, brought into the Health Services Office, or faxed only to (630)-782-6594. During summer break, health records can be turned in at the York Main Office. Do not turn the form in to summer school staff, counselors, hall monitors or coaches. Please keep a copy for your records.

 

Students who do not have access to a health care provider may contact the DuPage County All Kids Program at (630)-782-7400.

 

If you have any questions please call the Health Services Office at (630)-617-2438.
