58 Doing Good



Service Spotlight 

District 58 teaches more than academics – teachers and staff also instill a sense of volunteerism and compassion in their students, recognizing the importance of instructing children to be good stewards at a young age. The District’s students and schools complete an impressive variety of charity fundraisers and volunteer work each year. Service projects benefit those in need on a local, regional, national and even global level!

58 Doing Good showcases some of these wonderful service projects for our community. This page also serves as a connector between organizations in need of help and classes/groups within District 58 who might be looking for a service project to complete.

As the 2015-16 school year begins, we look forward to sharing more stories with you, and we
hope you enjoy reading about the hard work and generosity of our students and staff in service of their community!

2015-16 school year:
