The Alain Locke Associate Board wants to say a big THANK YOU to all who made gifts to the Exceed the Need campaign.
As the end of the school year draws near, Alain Locke students are making us proud by recognizing the contributions of past generations to American history.
Seventh-graders Michelle, Nylah, D’Shanti and Tiona brought home “Red Ribbon” awards from the Illinois History Day competition. The annual event is designed to promote the study of local and state history.
On April 27, Alain Locke 7th graders enjoyed a visit from a special guest speaker—and Alain Locke graduate—who is working to change the landscape for black women in the entertainment industry.
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.
Alain Locke student Arai won an Excellence Award and a silver medal for her science project at the Regional STEM Exhibition! 🏅🔬🏆
