The Alain Locke Associate Board wants to say a big THANK YOU to all who made gifts to the Exceed the Need campaign. Thanks to the generosity of friends, family and fans—and the help of a matching challenge grant—more than $25,000 was raised this school year. This will ensure students get the basic resources they need to make the school year the best it can be. Thanks again for your support!
In December the Alain Locke Associate Board held a resume building workshop with parents at the school. More than 25 Alain Locke parents attended. They were treated to dinner with their kids and associate board members, and then got one on one assistance and advice on how to create, update or improve their resumes, as well as job hunting tips. The evening was a great success, and another workshop will be held this coming Spring.
Please note that Alain Locke Charter School follows the action of Chicago Public Schools. If all Chicago Public Schools are closed due to extreme cold weather or snow then Alain Locke Charter School will also be closed.
