Ava comes to Glenbrook every day with a smile and a kind heart.  She genuinely cares for others and is always quick to make sure others are having a great day too.  Ava studies hard and always strives to do her best.  She is a shining example of what a "Respectful, Responsible, and Safe" student looks like.  We love having Ava at Glenbrook!  Way to go Ava!

Michael is a great academic student who demonstrates respectful behavior and kindness on a daily basis.  He is a great friend to his classmates and a wonderful student who loves to learn! Outside of school, Michael volunteers at the Wildlife Sanctuary helping to care for animals and he also has his own facebook page about understanding animals and how to handle them when they come into our communities.  Michael is a great representative for our school's "Spotlight Student"!  Super job Michael!

Charlie not only arrives each day to do his best in school, but also to help others achieve their best too.  He is an outstanding friend and student and serves as a wonderful role model and leader for others to follow.  Charlie makes our school a better place to be.  We love having his positive attitude and ever present smile at Glenbrook!  Excellent work Charlie!

Felicia P, Isaiah M, Brayden O, Caden H, Kamrie D, Maddix L, Joey R, Ashton F, Jaden D

Posted Friday, June 03, 2016

Felicia comes to school ready to learn. She is always willing to help others in and out of the classroom. Recently when we had a new student come she helped her to adjust to the new setting and make new friends. Felicia is a model student who does what is expected and always makes me smile!

Isaiah's hard work and diligence in learning his math facts has been amazing to watch! Even his peers have exclaimed how much he has improved. Isaiah continually shows respect to his teachers and peers. His smile lights up his face and my day!

Brayden and Caden both go out of their way to help others and to make sure everyone feels welcomed. Brayden also was on the technology panel to help improve technology in our classrooms. Both boys are great friends with great personalities. We are going to miss them when they go to Middle School next year.

Kamrie is a student who always offers to help out when there is a job that needs to be done. She does not wait to be told, but rather takes it upon herself to do what is needed. She also helps her friends out when they are having difficulty in different types of situations, like homework or just to offer a helping hand. She is responsible and always puts her best effort into everything she does.

Maddix is a super helpful, hard worker! He always shows respectful and responsible behavior and is so kind to others! Maddix is a role model for others to follow and has been an absolute joy to have in class!

Joey brings a smile to everyone's faces with his sense of humor and kind heart. He takes on any task we give him with a positive attitude and tries his best. In addition, Joey has been a representative for Glenbrook out in the community. Along with being featured on WBAY's CP Telethon this spring, Joey will be featured with Bill Jartz and Cami Rapson in a commercial airing in July for Disability Awareness Month. Joey has a special place in our hearts as a student who smiles, laughs and cares for others everyday.

Ashton goes out of his way to help others and me around the classroom. He always comes in with a smile and a "ready to go" attitude! He plays and works well with others and follows our school's "Be Safe, Be Respectful, and Be Responsible" consistently! He is a role model for others to follow!

Jaden is always very helpful and kind. She shares her smile with everyone and is wonderful friend and kindergartner. I can't believe she is going off to first grade already. She's been truly wonderful to have in class!

Miranda Pamperin

Posted Tuesday, May 03, 2016

Through senior Miranda Pamperin’s Pulaski High School career, her participation, outstanding grades and irresistible personality has left a
 
positive impact for the high school and community. Parents Toni and Jay Pamperin have stood by her side through every step of the journey
 
throughout her four years of high school and early years of college along with extra support from her younger brother Ben and older sister
 
Leanne.
 
Ever since Pamperin’s early years of high school she has been involved in French Club, National Honor Society and multiple athletics. From
 
running hurdles in track to spiking the ball to earn a kill for her team in volleyball, Pamperin has always had a passion for activities and also for
 
the memories and the relationships created with her teammates. Pamperin stated, “Playing multiple sports throughout my life has taught me
 
that I am capable of great things and how to push myself to my absolute limit.” Pamperin plans to continue her active volleyball career in college.
 
When Pamperin is not running outside or practicing in the gym, she works part time as a Certified Nursing Assistant at her local assisted living
 
facility. “I leave with a rewarding feeling that I gave residents the best care possible and I did everything in my power to make them happy and
 
comfortable,” said Pamperin. Her favorite subjects include: Anatomy and Physiology, “[It’s] just an interesting course and and very intriguing. I
 
love learning about the human body.” In college, Pamperin plans to pursue her medical interests by majoring in premedical at the University of
 
Wisconsin La-Crosse to become an OBGYN in the fall of 2016.
 
In the meantime, when Pamperin is not busy with school and sports, she enjoys listening to music, reading, hanging out with friends and “just
 
being active.”
 
Pamperins involvement and attitude will truly leave a positive impact for the students who knew her and will follow in her footsteps. As a final
 
quote, Pamperin stated, “I should not give up when give up when things get tough and that anything is truly possible.”

Taylor Klitzka

Posted Tuesday, May 03, 2016

Senior Taylor Klitzka is May’s Student Spotlight. Klitzka is more than deserving of this award because of how she goes above and beyond in not
 
only academics, but everything else. Klitzka is a great student and the perfect role model for everyone. “I feel very honored to be recognized for
 
the time and effort that I put into school work and studying,” said Klitzka. “It’s nice to get reminders that hard work truly pays off.”
 
Aside from advancing in her academics, Klitzka is also involved in many extracurricular activities. She is apart of Girl’s Golf, Track and Field, Future
 
Business Leaders of America and National Honors Society.
 
Klitzka can not take all the credit for her motivation to do so well in school; she would like to thank her parents and teachers for the help all along
 
the way. “I would like to thank my parents for supporting me throughout my life and always pushing me to do my best. For as long as I can
 
remember my parents have encouraged me not only to strive for success but to also accept failure and use it as motivation,” said Klitzka. “I
 
would also like to thank the teachers I’ve had through the years because they have all made such a positive influence on both my education and
 
my life.” Klitzka is the daughter of Peter Klitzka and the late Laura Klitzka and they currently live in Hobart.  
 
When asking Klitzka what she would like to change about her high school career she said, “I would allow myself to relax more. Through the
 
majority of my time here, I focused almost solely of academics. However, during senior year I’ve given myself more time to do things I love, and I
 
ended up with more happiness and still achieved the grades I strive for.”
 
After graduating, Klitzka plans on attending St. Norbert College to become a pharmaceutical scientist. “Ever since I was a little girl I’ve tried my
 
hardest to do so well in school and wanted nothing less than my best. I feel very rewarded when I challenge myself, and I believe that I will
 
continue to do so as I move through my life. After college, I will need to challenge myself everyday in my job in order to be successful and
 
discover new medications and treatments,” said Klitzka.
 
Graduation and college are on Klitzka’s mind with the school year winding down, but she still likes to think about things even farther in the
 
future. “I am most looking forward to when I have a family of my own and can live comfortably,” said Klitzka. “Spending every day with the people
 
I love while doing a job I enjoy is my number one goal for the future.”
 
With her academic excellence her past four years, it is certain Klitzka will have great success in the future and accomplish her goals. Good luck
 
Taylor!
