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. Here are our current bylaws. To keep everyone informed about our students’ achievements as well as our own activities and future plans, please check this website regularly!

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.
