Coworking space coming to Elmhurst (and a roundup of nearby options)

by Thomas Makinney


Elmhurst continues to be on the cutting edge of business trends and national models. With a continuous upward tick in the number of people who work remotely or independently, coworking spaces have soared in popularity, and soon Elmhurst will be getting it’s first dedicated space. If you’re intrigued, there are a few in neighboring towns to check out in the meantime along with a monthly coworking group that meets at the library.

Cohab has plans to open in the first quarter of 2018 at 107 Adell Place. Touted as a community coworking space with sophisticated offerings and comfy amenities, it will have private offices, various working options, and monthly and daily membership fees. For more information, contact co-found Michelle Steber at (331) 209-0290.

If you’re looking for a place to network, brainstorm, and share ideas with other Elmhurst residents who work solo, consider attending the monthly Elmhurst Coworking Connection held the third Thursday of the month from 9:30am-5pm. Register online or by calling (630) 279-8696.

Nearby LaGrange offers Suite Spotte, a bright modern coworking space in downtown LaGrange (with a second location in Forest Park). Suite Spotte offers flexible pricing—join monthly, buy a 10-pass, or pay daily—and no long-term commitment. Features include dedicated or shared workspace, small private phone rooms for longer calls, and meeting rooms.

Downtown Naperville is home to Klique Creative, a collaborative coworking space, which attracts writers, photographers, graphic designers, and small business owners.

If you need a more executive setup, consider Mia Executive Suites in Oak Brook. They offer a variety of fully furnished offices, conference rooms on an as-needed basis, receptionist to greet clients, company name listing in directory, mail service, and standard office services.

For executives who travel across the country and need access to flexible meeting space and offices, both Regus and Office Evolution offer private offices, multiple conference room options, and a full business center at their locations in the Chicago area (near O’Hare and in Oak Brook) as well as around the country.

With Elmhurst’s prime location on the Metra line and easy access to downtown and the airport, it’s the perfect spot for people who work remotely but need access to other areas.

York Spanish students fundraise for Puerto Rico relief

by Thomas Makinney


As the holiday season ramps up, it’s good to reminded that there is more to this time of year than buying gifts and going to parties. Some students at York have taken to heart the concept of giving and have received a lifelong gift in return.

Students in three honors Spanish classes at York have blended lessons in community, creativity, and technology and have raised more than $1,500 for relief efforts in Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.

Teacher Catherine Disterheft had just finished a unit on community and was beginning a section on creativity when the hurricane struck. As the students became aware of the impact of the disaster on the island, they expressed in interest in wanting to do more. And so, Disterheft steered the next unit, technology, toward ways to inspire actual relief.

She helped her students understand that creativity isn’t just about art and music, but also about solving problems. And technology (and in this case particularly social media) can be a positive influence.

Each class created a CrowdRise website to raise money for Red Cross Disaster Relief, picking a fundraising goal and writing the copy in English and Spanish. They spread the word on social media and via flyers and a video broadcast by York TV and available on YouTube.

Through the process they became aware of the severe devastation of the island and the challenges of relief and rebuilding. They learned how many residents are without sufficient food and safe drinking water and how many will be without electricity or homes for the foreseeable future.

The project has combined the best of all words, allowing students to not only apply Spanish skills in a practical and useful way but to really understand how those skills can help others.

Fundraising pages will be open for donations until Dec. 17:

It’s a town where students can focus on more than just test scores and learn valuable lessons about concrete ways to help others in need.

30 York musicians and singers perform in ILMEA All-District band

by Thomas Makinney

Congratulations to the 30 York High School students who were selected to perform in the Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) All-District band, chorus, orchestra, and jazz band! More than 3,000 students auditioned from over 75 schools throughout northeastern Illinois.

The Senior Festival was held Nov. 18 at Elmhurst College. There was also a Junior/Senior Jazz Festival on Nov. 11 at Thornton Fractional South High School in Lansing.

The following York students were selected for the IMEA All-District I:

Nick Agliata, bassoon; Katharine Bartosz, soprano; Michael Bindeman, bass; Olivia Braun, trombone; Madds Buckley, alto; Grace Clarke, alto sax; Matt Dardick, alto sax; Emily Dow, cello; Kristen Drost, soprano; Audrey Fatheree, French horn; Danielle Fite, alto; Lauren Hund, flute; Rylan Johnsen, viola; Carina Kanzler, soprano; Helen Koczur, soprano; Erin Lee, soprano; Wilke Macariola, tenor; Bailey Maguire, alto; Lauren Makinney, double bass; Abigail Marianetti, cello; David Menichini, trumpet; Jackie Meyer, alto; Chuck Miller, tenor sax, concert band and jazz ensemble; Siena Olson, French horn; Nicole Polizzi, soprano; Sebastian Rohn, tenor; Erin Stone, alto; Cece Stumpf, trumpet; Tessa Vermeulen, flute; and Nick Villarreal, clarinet.

Other Elmhurst students who performed on Nov. 18 were Timothy Christian students Dana McAdam, soprano 2; and Jack Vandermolen, clarinet.

Gracik-Makinney would like to congratulate all the young musicians! We’re proud of the strong music programs that are supported by all of the Elmhurst schools. A vibrant arts community is one of the best parts of our town. To learn more, call us at (630) 441-5570 or visit our website, www.gmregroup.com.

 

Residents show up to discuss proposed P.E. and music changes

by Thomas Makinney

Proposed changes to school curricula and policy drew Elmhurst residents to a long and well-populated school board meeting on Nov. 14.

The two issues that received the most heated discussion were the proposal to move the middle school band, orchestra, and choir practice from a before-school activity to an in-school elective, and a physical education waiver for students already participating in sports in grades seventh to twelfth.

More than 100 people attended the meeting to speak for and against both proposed changes.

The current scheduling of band, orchestra, and choir requires those students to be at school every day nearly an hour before regular classes begin. The district is hoping to alleviate a high dropout rate of students in these programs between grade school (when students go after school once a week) and middle school.

However, changing that schedule would mean that band, orchestra, and choir programs would count as an elective and drastically reduce the amount of other electives that those students could take.

The physical education waiver also inspired heated opinions. The proposal was ultimately shelved partly due to the late hour and partly due to the lack of information about how it would be implemented. Middle schools do not have any policies in place to handle P.E. waivers. Currently at high school, only varsity athletes are exempt from daily P.E. classes.

Other items on the agenda included a waiver to allow for fees to cover driver’s education and to set a fee not to exceed $325. The current fee is $245.

The meeting lasted more than four hours and discussion will continue at the next meeting on Dec. 12.

Here at Gracik Makinney, we’re proud of the community involvement from parents and residents and the welcome reception they receive from both the city council and school board.
