WAY TO GO REBELS!!
Dear Rebel Nation Families, Friends and Fans!!
Plans are underway for our upcoming prom to be held on April 23, 2016. We will host approximately 75+ students who are juniors and seniors from Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School and their guests. Our goal is a safe and memorable night for our young people.
Our After Prom is strictly funded through donations made by community members, merchants and organizations whom our Gladbrook-Reinbeck students and families help support throughout the year. We are seeking donations in the form of cash, gift cards and/or merchandise to be used as prizes throughout the evening. All money goes directly to the students in the form of grand prizes, merchandise and cash drawings throughout the night during After Prom - we make sure that every Gladbrook-Reinbeck junior and senior student leaves with prizes valued between $40 and $50. Such items that have been donated in the past include t-shirts, gift cards, electronics, restaurant gift cards, etc.
Any merchandise or gift certificates are welcome donations. Checks may be written to the ‘G-R After Prom Prize Committee’ and mailed to the address listed below. Please remember no gift or donation is too small. We would be happy to stop by and pick up items, too! We would like to receive all donations by April 8th.
On behalf of our committee, “Thank You” for your time, consideration and generosity in supporting our youth, our communities and helping us provide a safe, fun environment for our kids on prom night. It’s all about the kids!

Start the Day (and the Year) Right!
Make giving your kids a healthy breakfast every day one of your New Year’s resolutions.
If you don’t have much time in the morning or your kids aren’t hungry when they wake up, send them to school for breakfast. Healthy food choices are available every morning in the cafeteria for ALL students. We cannot wait to see them there!
Help make this semester a success - encourage your kids to eat breakfast!
THE BENEFITS OF BREAKFAST
Eating breakfast can help improve math, reading, and standardized test scores.i ii iii
Children who eat breakfast are more likely to behave better in school and get along with their peers than those who do not.iv v
Breakfast helps children pay attention, perform problem-solving tasks, and improves memory.vi vii
Children who eat school breakfast are likely to have fewer absences and incidents of tardiness than those who do not.viii
By eating breakfast, students get more of important nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as calcium, dietary fiber, folate and protein.ix x
Studies have shown that children who eat breakfast on a regular basis are less likely to be overweight.xi xii xiii
Eating breakfast as a child is important for establishing healthy habits for later in life.
Schools that provide breakfast in the classroom to all students have shown decreases in tardiness and suspensions as well as improved student behavior and attentiveness.xiv xv
What you eat for breakfast can have an impact on learning. One study showed that eating breakfast food high in fiber and low in sugar for breakfast helped students sustain the cognitive effects of breakfast.xvi
School Breakfast provides 1/4 the recommended amounts of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin A, and vitamin C for the day.xvii

If you are one of G-R's in-town Gladbrook families, your student has been assigned a bus stop for your student. These stops were assigned based on information forms that parents returned to the district office.
