Foundation awards Innovation Grants

The Glenbrook High School Foundation funded three Innovation grants this fall thanks to the generosity of parents who donated as part of Fall registration.

Those grants are:
Technician Class Amateur Radio Certification
Recipient:  Jason Berg, CTE Teacher, GBN

Makey Makey Electronic Kit
Recipients: Mike Sinde and Justin Zummo, CTE Teachers, GBS

Student Engagement At Glenbrook Off-Campus
Recipient: Lauren Berg, Instructional Assistant, Glenbrook Off-Campus 

“All of us at the Foundation wish to thank those whose energy helps us navigate these challenging times,” said Foundation Chair Adam Mathein. “The tireless energy of our teachers, administrators, and staff is an inspiration to us as we see the great lengths they go to in their effort to provide the safest educational experience for our students,” he said. 

Parent donations also support student scholarships, which will be announced later this year.   Twice a year, the Glenbrook High School Foundation provides schools and departments with an opportunity to apply for grants to fund innovative projects not funded in the school budget.  “Whether it is a monetary donation or just an encouraging note, we all play a vital role in supporting our district and sustaining the best possible educational environment for our students,” said Mathein.  

The Glenbrook High School Foundation is an independent, 501(c)(3) non-for-profit organization dedicated to funding programs and projects in District 225 that enhance students’ education. The Foundation supports innovative teaching projects, creates  access to leadership opportunities for low-income students, and grants scholarships to students who have great potential based on need and recommendations of faculty. More information can be found on the Foundation’s website
