Making a difference at Glenbard West

Making a difference at Glenbard West

Once again the Glenbard West High School community came through. Because of the generosity of the people in the Glenbard West community all eight-five ELL (English Language Learners) received a brand new beautiful Glenbard West hooded sweatshirt for the seventh consecutive year.

The appreciation displayed by the students assured me once again that this project is worthwhile.

ELL students have unique challenges at home and school and by receiving this gift they feel pride and they feel valued. It is surprising to them that people they do not know would want to do something nice for them.

You helped make a difference in someone's life. Thank You.
