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.

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.
