Intramurals are twice a week after school from 2:50-3:45 in the gym. This year 6th graders will have intramurals on Tuesdays while 7th and 8th graders will have intramurals on Thursdays. In intramurals we play sports and games that are covered in PE but in a more competitive atmosphere. Each month we will switch the activity that we will be doing.

Grades 6-8:  meets after school on the 2nd & 4th Monday of the month in Computer Lab, Room 31.  Reporters, photographers, creative writers and artists wanted for our online Glenbrook News Network: WGNN! The goal is to complete at least one newspaper and one green screen Newscast per trimester.  Students have an open choice, upon teacher approval, what they would like to submit to the paper or report in the newscast. Students are asked to have their articles/submissions edited by someone prior to the deadline. Mrs. Salvon is the advisor.

Come and help us capture the moments and memories of the 2016-17 school year at Glenbrook! If you have questions, please stop by to see Mrs. Salvon or Mrs. Milbier.

Math Counts - Mr. Zimora (Wednesdays from 2:50 - 3:30)

Math Counts is a national Middle School program that encourages students to increase their math skills through learning and competition. Students meet weekly, Wednesdays after school for practice (If you are in Student Council, you will be given the questions and be able to meet Mr. Zimora on Fridays after school that week).

A practice session includes working on unique problems with friends.

Top students compete in regional, state and national competitions.

Having math as your best subject is not required to join!  All you have to have is a desire to learn and be willing to do what it takes to become better.

Builder’s Club - Ms. Ranahan and Ms. Yacovone

The Builder's Club is a group of students who provide community service to Glenbrook and local community projects.  It is a great way for students to give back to Glenbrook and their community.

Art Club - Mr. Griffin (Thursdays from 3:00 - 4:00)

Here at Glenbrook Middle School students are fortunate to have art embedded in their curriculum with each student taking art for 1/3 of each year.  Despite this offering many students want more exposure to the arts and more opportunity to create art in a structured environment. Art Club will provide this by allowing students the opportunity to capitalize on the excitement they’ve experienced in their art classes. By increasing a student’s access to art, Art Club helps students develop a greater sense of who they are as artists and as members of their creative community. Art Club meets on Thursdays in room 33 from 3-4 o’clock.

A Cappella - Mr. Carney

A Cappella is an auditioned singing group that meets once a week before school.  We sing popular music chosen by the students without the use of instruments.  A Cappella is only about 20 members and has 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.  Auditions will be held after school on Tuesday 9/27 and Thursday 9/29!  Students must prepare a song that they enjoy singing (or beatboxing) and come to one of the audition dates.  More information will be heard in the announcements.

The Variety Show - Mr. Carney and Mrs. Siegel (TBD)

Calling all musicians, dancers, comedians, jugglers and other performers:  The Variety Show is a school wide performance that usually takes place at the end of February.  Student performers of all types audition for a spot in the show.  We hold auditions in January and rehearse together after school.  The show is during the school day and all students and teachers are present to enjoy the show.

Student Council - Ms. Lajoie (Every other Wednesday from 2:50 - 3:30)

Student Council is an organization made of up the student leaders of Glenbrook. Student Council organizes fundraisers, school citizenship activities, Spirit Days, and other fun activities for all the students at Glenbrook. Meetings are held every other Wednesday and anyone can attend - advisory representatives and others that are interested.

Jazz Band - Mr. Higa (Thursdays from 3:00 - 4:00)

The Jazz Band is an auditioned ensemble that meets after school on Thursdays, from 3:00-4:00 PM.  During this hour you will learn what “Jazz” is, how it is important to the American culture, and how to perform this style of music on your instrument.  Of all the ensembles at GMS, the Jazz Band performs the most.  These performances include the Winter and Spring Concerts, Longmeadow Days, & the Elementary Schools Tour.  If you are interested in auditioning for jazz band, music can be found outside of Room 36 (Band Room).
