Dear Evan Hansen
A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in. "Dear Evan Hansen" is the deeply personal and profoundly contemporary musical about life and the way we live it.

Team YEF raises more than $7,000 for D115
Team YEF, a group of 27 parents, teachers, staff, and community members, participated in the Fox Valley Half Marathon on September 16 as Charity Heroes. These runners raised more than $7,000 for the Yorkville Educational Foundation and the District 115 school of their choice. Earlier this month, the Foundation awarded $2,500 of the funds raised back to participating schools. The remaining funds will be reinvested in the Foundation to support annual events including the “Fostering Our Future” community and employee recognition awards program and education grants. YEF thanks its sponsors (The BFF and Caterpillar), and the Yorkville High School Student Council members who volunteered at the Fox Valley Half Marathon.  

A special thanks to all the Team YEF runners:
Samantha Brown, Alma Hundiak, Derek Miller, Kate Calder, Dr. Lynn Burks, Brian Long, Kerry Stillmunkes, Bethany Parker Ross, Ben Niles, Aaron Mueller, Teri Hanson, Sarah Cann, Elizabeth Montgomery, Kate Rogola, Jake Austin, Lauren Foster, Abigail Riddle, Traci Johnigk, Ryan Martinez, Sally Firrantello, Melissa Riddle, Maxzine Rossler, Megan Rossler, and Tom Paulson.
