Senator Durbin Visits AGC

19 May

AGC was honored to welcome US Senator for Illinois and Majority Whip Dick Durbin for a visit Friday. First, Senator Durbin visited Ms. Rombouts’ Dual Language 1st grade classroom, where 50% of students are native English speakers and 50% are native Spanish speakers. The students taught the senator a few Spanish words for parts of the body, showed him a planting project they are working on for wellness and introduced him to the hardworking worms in their vermi-compost bin.

Next, a group of students led Senator Durbin in a tour of our schoolyard garden, where he learned about our solar energy instillation and organic schoolyard garden. He enjoyed meeting our schoolyard chicken, Puddles.
