Eagle Scout Project to provide a ‘Greenhouse for GBMS’

A former student of GBMS, Glen Diamond, who is now a senior at WHRHS, is currently working on an  Eagle Scout project, to provide a “Greenhouse for GBMS”.  Students and teachers could use this as an additional learning space.   Fundraising for this project is proceeding well, but we still need financial support to achieve the goal of $2,000.00.  Any contributions, large or small, would be greatly appreciated.

To learn more about this project, and how to contribute, please visit this ‘GoFundMe’ page at:

Green Brook Middle School students are hard at work preparing for their jaw-dropping performance of Seussical Jr!

Come journey through Whoville and the Jungle of Nool as we follow the story of Horton the Elephant (played by Ahir Verma) trying to save a small world. Laugh along as the Cat in the Hat (Jordan Pincus) narrates us through the twists and turns of this incredible tale based on the characters of legendary children’s author, Dr. Seuss. Watch as poor little Gertrude the bird (Erin Ptack) finds her confidence, the Sour Kangaroo and Little Kangaroo (Mia Hionis and Lea Anthony) tease Horton, JoJo’s (Aria Anthony) “thinks” get him in trouble with Mrs. and Mr. Mayor (Abby Wighard and Daniel Zhang), and the amazing Mayzie (Rhea Cariappa) reminds us just How Lucky [We] Are!

This is the 6th show directed by the school’s chorus and orchestra director, Mr. William Alzaher with choreography by Jaclyn Priore and crew management by GBMS theater teacher Mrs. Erin Ferrara.
