Caleb Guider, Kimmya Doughty and Isis Turner won a brand new Samsung Tablet at today’s Future Founders Challenge. Our students were mixed with elementary and high school students from across the city to compete in teamwork challenges. The students worked with real-world entrepreneurs to make innovative products, develop a strategic business plan and to create an award-winning marketing campaign. Even though only a few of our students took home the big prize, everyone was a winner!! All of the participants received a Future Founders t-shirt and lunch from Potbelly’s for their hard work.
What’s the secret to our success? It’s all about data! Alain Locke was highlighted by nonprofit The Achievement Network for our use of data to develop teaching and boost student learning. Find out more about the “secret sauce” that makes Alain Locke great:
The Alain Locke Charter School choir loved performing at SWC Technology Partners and the Oakbrook Microsoft Store, serenading and playing instruments for staff and customers – and santa! The students all enjoyed a technology scavenger hunt and received goodie bags.
#GivingTuesday is a special call to action to create a global day of giving that brings diverse organizations and communities around the world together to give back. This year, Alain Locke is participating in #GivingTuesday to rally contributions for our book drive. Our goal is to add an additional 200 books per classroom, for all 15 of our classrooms. That’s a lot of books, but it’s possible with your help. Follow the link below and help share the gift of reading with our students—and make #GivingTuesday a success at Alain Locke.

Alain Locke currently only has about 200 books per classroom. We need that number to be 600 or more.
