11 Students Receive Spartan Class Act Award

11 Students Receive Spartan Class Act Award

11 Glenbrook North students are being recognized for embracing the school’s Class Act and treating others with respect.

Over two decades ago GBN’s Class Act was established. It stands for respect, accept and inspire. In 2016 GBN began recognizing students throughout the school year who do exemplary work. Students that receive the award are nice, kind, respectful, accepting of others and do the right thing without the need to be acknowledged publicly.

The staff generally show a great deal of admiration, appreciation and oftentimes emotions for the positivity this student brings to the school.

Mr. Eric Etherton, GBN Student Services Assistant Principal


Teachers and faculty members nominate a student for the award throughout the school year. Recipients are awarded during a breakfast ceremony where family members are invited to listen to faculty about why their student is receiving the award.
