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.
