Foundation Awards Teacher Innovation Grants

facebooktwittermail

The Foundation along with District 225 recently selected the recipients of the 2015 Teacher Innovation Grants.  Innovation Grants are annually awarded to projects that clearly advance student learning and achievement in our schools in a creative manner incorporating the tenets of best practices in secondary education.

This year the Foundation selected Off-Campus teachers Pa’al Joshi and Tricia Lazarro (pictured below) as the recipients of the Innovation Grants.  Pa’al Joshi is a Special Education teacher who is the head teacher for Glenbrook United, an organization that serves students with intellectual disabilities and competes in Special Olympics.  Joshi’s grant will provide his students with the necessary athletic equipment to participate in the Special Olympics this year.

Tricia Lazarro was awarded an Innovation Grant to expand her STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) based project for students in the Off-Campus and Evening School programs.  Lazarro was awarded funds to purchase a Glowforge 3D Laser cutter which will allow her students to create products which include engraving and etching glass and metal.

Congratulations to Pa’al and Tricia!  The Foundation is thrilled to help you advance your students’ learning through these worthwhile projects.

The Glenbrook Foundation’s 2nd annual Back-to-School party, held on Saturday, August 29th at Glenbrook South High School, proved to be another fun, family-friendly event for the communities of Glenview and Northbrook.  Alumni, current students and administrators, families and friends all came together to enjoy a night of carnival games, sports in the gym, swimming in the pools, food trucks, and “The Incredibles” on the big screen.  The event drew more than 500 people from the surrounding community who were able to enjoy first-hand all the wonderful facilities that Glenbrook South High School has to offer.  The party is championed as a way to bring families together and introduce communities from both schools to the good work being done by the Glenbrook Foundation.

The Foundation would like to recognize all the efforts of Dr. James Shellard and his staff for making this event such a huge success.  Students from Glenbrook South and Glenbrook North High Schools participated in the event, engaging kids with fun carnival games and prizes throughout the evening.  Trustees of the Glenbrook Foundation were in attendance, as well as many friends of the Foundation who generously donated their time at the party.  “The evening had a real positive, enthusiastic vibe,” said Beth Bassler, Glenbrook High School Foundation Chair.  She credited much of the evening’s success to the more than 65 GBS and GBN peer mentors, who volunteered their time to work together “toward a common purpose to represent their high schools while welcoming future Spartans and Titans and their families to the event.”

 

The Glenbrook Foundation would like to thank the following generous sponsors of the Back-to-School Party:
