  • RAY AGUILERA’S LEGACY LIVES ON THROUGH VOCABULARY CHALLENGE

    For years, Mr. Aguilera and his Pueblo Poverty Foundation sponsored an end-of-year “Vocabulary Challenge” that rewarded those students who learned the most new words. Mr. Aguilera passed away before the results of this year’s Challenge could be revealed. Prior to his passing, however, he prepared a host of “Fun in the Sun” gift bags earmarked for those scholars who best padded their vocabularies throughout the year.

  • A Birthday is a Great Day, and a Great Way, to Say, 'Hey! Books are A-OK'

    Across the district, Read Across America Week, which annually coincides with the birthday of Theodor “Dr. Suess” Geisel, saw D60 students revel in the wealth of activities and specially themed days designed to add a fun component to the pro-literacy campaign. As is tradition, a number of district and community notables, from Superintendent Charlotte Macaluso to Sheriff Kirk Taylor to Mayor Nick Gradisar, donned the famous “Cat in the Hat” headware and read their favorite Dr. Seuss book.

  • At Minnequa, It's About "Bringing a lot of Diversity to our Kids"

    Inside Sloan’s Wightman’s English Language Arts classroom hangs a poster highlighting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. A poignant remnant from a lesson that illustrates Minnequa Elementary School’s commitment to broadening the worldview of its young scholars and exposing them to influential figures, and issues, both past and present.
