Willowbrook Black Organization for Student Success (BOSS) hosts door decorating contest to recognize and celebrate Black History Month

To honor, recognize and celebrate Black History Month, the Willowbrook Black Organization for Student Success (BOSS) hosted a door decorating contest throughout February.

Staff members (along with their students) were encouraged to decorate classroom entryways to reflect black excellence. The entries were judged, and the winners are:

  • The Writing Center

  • English teacher Christine Calandra’s classroom

  • The Math Department

  • World language teacher Isabel Juvan’s classroom

These classrooms received a plaque and a tasty treat. See photos of several of the winning doors above.

The purpose of BOSS is to:

  • Increase awareness of and appreciation for African American history, culture and issues

  • Promote a genuine multicultural environment at Willowbrook

  • Increase awareness of and access to post-secondary options for African American students

Members of BOSS have the opportunity to grow academically and emotionally, while being presented with opportunities of enrichment and leadership. All Willowbrook students, faculty and staff are invited to join the group.

District 88 will host more events in recognition of Black History Month throughout the spring. More information about Black History Month can be found at https://blackhistorymonth.gov.
