Mr. SCHNEIDER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor Greenbriar
Elementary School in Northbrook, Illinois, in the district I represent.
This outstanding educational institution has been recognized as one of
only 286 Blue Ribbon schools in the entire country.
This is the first National Blue Ribbon distinction that Greenbriar has earned, one of 21 awarded in the state, one of four awarded to schools in Illinois's Tenth District and one of three in Northbrook.
Good education is the foundation of any community, and it is essential to our success in the 21st Century. At any of Northbrook's Blue Ribbon Schools, you will find some of the [[Page E1870]] nation's finest schools, filled with eager and curious students and passionate and engaging teachers. In Illinois's Tenth District, our communities are strong, in part, because of excellent educational institutions like this.
It is at schools like Greenbriar where students are engaged and encouraged to explore their interests. Here, the wide array of literature, language and math programs challenge students and help them expand their minds.
With schools like Greenbriar, Tenth District students are building foundations for success in this ever-changing, competitive 21st Century.
The education Greenbriar Elementary School students receive not only helps position them for future success, but also prepares them for a lifetime of learning.
Mr. Speaker, I am so pleased to honor Greenbriar Elementary School here today, and I am so proud to have such excellent schools in the Tenth District. I congratulate Greenbriar once again on receiving this distinguished award.
