Students in Concert Band perform at a recent concert.
  • Awards and Recognition

When every K-5 student receives 60 minutes of music education a week, there are four levels of band, five levels of orchestra, a children’s choir, several middle school choral groups, musical productions for every 5th grade and an annual spring musical at the junior high, it’s not surprising that District 28 receives continuous recognition from the NAMM Foundation with the Best Communities for Music Education.

First grade students assemble meal kits for Ronald McDonald house in the Greenbriar auditorium.

The results of Greenbriar School’s first-ever weeklong, school-wide, community service project will require about 20 carloads to deliver, says parent volunteer Urmi Graft.

The school auditorium was transformed into a workshop where every class spent 30-60 minutes working on age-appropriate projects throughout the week. The results: 1,300 meal kits for Ronald McDonald House in Oak Lawn and more than 1,500 bracelet craft kits & handmade joke cards for Camp One Step, an organization that supports pediatric cancer patients and their families.
