Willowbrook Celebrates 50 in Style
On February 22, Willowbrook School went all out during its birthday celebration of 50 years on Happy Hollow Road in Glenview!
Principal Dr. Scott Carlson and staff members have been collecting stories from past Willowbrook teachers and alums. Classrooms were assigned decades and decorated their classrooms and themselves with paraphernalia symbolic from that particular era.
Grade level eras:
Grade 5 - 1960s
Grade 4 - 1970s
Grade 3 - 1980s
Grade 2 - 1990s
Grade 1 and Preschool - 2000s
Kindergarten - 2010s
Prior to the celebration assembly in the gymnasium, everyone enjoyed parading through the building viewing grade level door decorations and the variety of clothes designs from the past decades.
The assembly began with third-grade Flag Raisers Teddy Mikroulis, Tyler Shinsky, Nina Sikaras, Aidan Barry, Maddie Goldwin, and Sobha Singh. The audience sang "The National Anthem" and recited the "Pledge of Allegiance."
No celebration is complete without song and dance. Each grade level chose a popular dance from their decade to showcase.
Grade five did "The Twist"; Grade four performed "The Hustle"; and Grade three reenacted 80’s dance moves to Michael Jackson's "Beat It."
The younger kids enjoyed bouncing around to "The Macarena" (second grade); The "Cha Cha Slide" was performed by grade one and preschoolers; and Kindergartners concluded the series with "Can't Stop the Feeling."
A group of teachers and students then participated in "Jeopardy: Willowbrook Edition," where everyone was encouraged to try and answer questions about Willowbrook's past.
The assembly concluded on a lively note with the school song.
