Volunteer Hours & Yard Signs

Hello Parents:

Yes, I would like all the players to volunteer some of their time during the season helping others in the community. I have attached some documents regarding volunteer hours. The players are required to complete 10 hours of service. The attachments will layout the specifics. Coming up on October 1st is the JDRF Walk in support of creating a world without juvenile diabetes. The last three years we have had lots of football players help out during this event. As usual, the event takes place at St. James Farm in Warrenville. If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Reif at

I have had several parents ask about yard signs. In years past, I have had two parents take on the responsibility of ordering and distributing yard signs. I have a few yards signs left over from last year’s order, but not nearly enough to cover all the requests. If there are any parent(s) who would like to take responsibility of helping with yard signs please let me know.

Message from GBS Boosters

Dear Parents,

We hope you and your students are off to a great year at Glenbard South! 

There are some exciting community events coming up we thought you’d like to know about.  Come join us!

​​Raider Pride Night is Friday, September 8th.  Designed for the entire family, elementary school-aged children are admitted free with an adult.  They’ll receive glow sticks and pompons and an opportunity to cheer the Varsity Football Team onto the field. A fun night for all… More info here.

​Glenbard South Restaurant Nights will be held at Reserve 22 at the Village Links of Glen Ellyn on Friday evenings September 8, 22 and October 6th.  Stop by R22 from 4 p.m. to midnight for a bite to eat.  Glenbard South Boosters will receive 15% of the food portion of your bill.  Dine in or carry out.  Have a meal for a cause! More info here.

​On a more serious note, please join Glenbard South Boosters and Principal Sandra Coughlin for an enlightening evening on Monday, September 11th at 7 p.m. in South’s Library.  You’ll learn in quick fashion what Boosters does to support the academics, activities, aesthetics, athletics and the arts at GSHS, followed by Principal Coughlin’s presentation “What You Need to Know:  The Beliefs and Convictions of Glenbard South and District 87.”  Spend about an hour learning more about your school. We’re looking forward to seeing you there. More info here.

​Another event for the entire family – the Glenbard South Raider Color Run will kick off Homecoming Week on Saturday, September 17th and is sure to be a blast! Walk 1.5 miles or run 5K.  Wheelchair and stroller friendly course.  Drench yourself in color or step around those stations – there’s something for everyone!  8 a.m. check in for 9 a.m. start.  Sign up today!  More info here.  Registration form here.

​Speaking of Homecoming, it’s not just for students or alumni!  The entire school will be celebrating with a Pep Rally on Thursday, September 21st in Raider Gymnasium around 7 p.m.  The whole community – all ages – are invited!  Make it a hassle-free evening and come out between 6 p.m. and the start of the Rally for some Chick Fil A sandwiches and Rosati’s Pizza before the spirited event.

The Homecoming Game is Friday, September 22nd at 7:15 p.m. at Raider Stadium.  The traditional dance for students will follow on Saturday night the 22nd.

Other notes:

  • BE ON THE LOOK OUT FOR YOUR INVITATION TO THE GSHS PARENTS’ FALL SOCIAL IN OCTOBER!  Sponsored by Boosters, this fun adults-only evening is open to all with a current Raider student. Details will follow soon!
  • If you have a student in a sport or activity, chances are we have a yard sign, decal or tshirt for you to display!  Click the previous links or, for a complete selection, see

Special Olympics BBall and Hurricane Harvey

Good evening, Parents:

I’d like to thank you all very much for your donations for our Special Olympics basketball team. We were able to raise $1017! These special student athletes are going to love their new gear and equipment.

Tomorrow, the athletics department will be collecting old T-shirts and gym shoes for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Containers will be placed in the stadium for you to put the donations into.

As usual, the parents of the football program are the best! Thanks!
