District-Wide Face Happenings……


The FACE department has developed many great opportunities such as family workshops and field trips for parents, students, and WPS 60 staff.  Anyone who is interested in attending those field trips may pay in the Oakdale office.  THAT’s RIGHT! You no longer need to go by Lincoln Center to sign up.  Come by the front office, and I can confirm if there is still availability and take payments. Please see below for the upcoming trips from the district.  



Push out: Exclusive Lake County Premiere Screening at TRAPP Auditorium. February 6th & 7th. FREE EVENT


PUSHOUT: The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools is a feature length documentary that takes a deep dive into the lives of black girls and the practices, cultural beliefs and policies that disrupts one of the most important factors in a girls' lives-education.


The Documentary Covers:

- Profiles Black Girls as they address how schools have hindered, but also helped them navigate their lives.

- Looks at the consequences of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and how trauma experienced in childhood influences adult outcomes.

- Examines how awareness of childhood trauma can help girls redirect their lives.

- Examines how school officials can find new pathways for discipline that concentrate on the reasons behind certain behaviors rather than punishing them.

- Profiles schools and organizations that are making a difference in Black girls lives-all discuss alternatives to suspensions and expulsions, inculcating community-based and more culturally appropriate responses.

- Explain how "adultification" of Black girls-seeing them as older and more sexually mature than they really are-impacts the response of adults. This in-turn looks at how the development of the adolescent brain influences young people's ability to make rational and positive decisions.

- Profiles teachers, mentors, judges and principals who have found new ways of working with Black girls that emphasize their inherent value and dignity.
