  • We love clubs!

    Clubs are a tradition at Greenbrier, but due to COVID, for the past two years we have had to postpone them.  But CLUBS ARE BACK!  Every teacher sponsors a club of their choice based on interests and talents.  Students are then able to sign up for what club they would like to attend.  Two Fridays a month, students are able to attend their club, so don't miss a Friday!

  • Orphan of Ellis Island

    3rd grade readers kicked off their first novel of the year, "Orphan of Ellis Island", by visiting Ellis Island as European immigrants in the early 1900s! Students completed their Certificate of Arrival and visited the Registry table, Medical table, and Legal table before finding out if they were going to be welcomed to a new home or deported based on their qualifications. This would not have been possible without our fabulous 3rd grade family volunteers! #GreenbrierProud EESlegends

  • California Visits

    Today was a special day. We had several visitors travel from California to watch our teachers collaborating with one another. The kindergarten and first grade team explained and modeled the process that we use as a Professional Learning Community to make sure all students receive timely support around essential learning standards. The California team walked away amazed at what our teacher teams do on a daily basis to ensure learning for ALL. This is just one of many reasons of why we are a Model PLC school. #EESlivingthedream #GreenbrierProud

  • Book Tasting!

    Our 5th grade book tasting was a success!!! Students “taste tested” each book to decide which book they wish to read for the rest of the year. Students will be in “Book Clubs” while they read and complete various activities based on 5th grade Essential Standards.
