BPO Scholarships-  The 2016-17 BPO Scholarship form is now available HERE.  There are two scholarships available to seniors, one for musicianship and one for service to the band.  Download the  form, fill it out and email the completed form to Mrs. Dean at ddean@glenbrook225.org.  Applications are due by April 20th.

Who we are: The Glenbrook North Band Parent Organization (GBN BPO) is made up of parents of students in any aspect of the band program at GBN.

 

What We Do: We are an active group that seeks to enhance GBN’s band program by helping to fund scholarships, enrichment programs, guest artists, instrument replacement, etc. We chaperone such activities as marching band contests, concerts, band trips, and overnight band camp. We are a presence at football games and basketball games as we cheer on the Spartans and our marching and pep bands respectively.
How We Do It: Our board meets monthly, August through June, generally the first Monday of each month.  While voting is limited to board members, the meetings are open to any BPO members. To keep everyone informed about our students’ achievements as well as our own activities and future plans, please check out our newly designed website gbnband.com.
How You Can Help: Parents, grandparents, alumni now is the time to become a Friend of the BPO with a donation of your choice. If you donate $25.00 or more, you will receive a car magnet to proudly display your support. In recognition and thanks, we will publish the names of our donors in our concert programs and online.
We also encourage you to attend Festa Italiana, our biggest fundraiser of the year. Festa, held the first Sunday in November at GBN, features our Jazz Bands in an evening of student music, food, raffles and fun.
