Join us for this year's 5k and 3k. 

This year's Halloween Hustle is presented by Lakeview Bus Lines and being held on October 27th in beautiful uptown Park Ridge.  Grab your kids, grab your friends, and get ready for a fun day of running and walking in costume!  The school with the highest percentage of participation will win the trophy!

Thanks to all of you who have attended any of our fundraisers in the last year!  Through your efforts and participation, we have raised over $35,000 to support innovative, imaginative and educational programs for our children across the district.

Watch our video message from D64 principals to learn how your donation to ELF is making a difference in our schools. ELF grants have provided our schools with unique training opportunities, collaboration stations, stand-up desks, 21st century learning centers, broadcasting rooms, and more!
