Whether you’ve attended one of our popular and informative lectures in our
Glenbard Parent Series (GPS), spent time helping us prepare mailings or mega-
hours fundraising as part of Boosters, BOP or Choral Parents, your efforts to assist in our mission are essential and appreciated. Special
thanks go to members of the Memorial Field Capital Campaign Committee for raising over $300,000 since last November toward the
goal of maximizing field space for Physical Education and our growing number of extracurricular opportunities for students. Students
use this campus from dawn to dusk, and this artificial turf will even increase students’ opportunity to practice and compete right here
where they belong.
  Special thanks to three Glenbard West staff members who “graduate” this year as well. Mark Clutter (English/Library), Sue Sanders
(Guidance), and Mike Timpanaro (Science) have given decades of dedicated service to students, staff and families. We wish them
health, happiness and fulfillment in retirement pursuits!
