Young Parents, We Want Your Feedback.

We are asking that Young parents take some time to complete the 5Essentials survey. Completion of the survey will take about 5 minutes.

This survey can be completed on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.

1. Visit https://survey.5-essentials.org/illinois/survey/parent/login/

2. Type and then select DuPage as District 204's County location. This is the county associated with the district, not the location of an individual school.

3. Type your school's name into the School field and then select your school.

Young Secret Snowflake Program (through December 6)

Young is hosting a “Secret Snowflake” program for Young families that may need assistance during the holiday season. We are asking members of the Nancy Young community to sponsor a “Secret Snowflake” that will include purchasing a $10 gift card to Target.

If you would like to donate a snowflake, complete the permission slip at the following link


Choose a “Secret Snowflake” and drop off the permission slip in the office.

Students can pick up a “Secret Snowflake” from 8:50 am -9:05 a.m. and 3:15 pm-3:45 p.m. In addition, the office will be open during conferences to pick up a snowflake.

We are asking that the $10 Target gift cards be returned with the “Secret Snowflake” attached, to Young Elementary School, by Thursday, December 6th. Each “Secret Snowflake” has a value of $10. Please feel free to pick up more than one “Secret Snowflake” if your family chooses!

Thank you in advance for helping the Nancy Young Elementary School students and families!
