Dear Dollar for Scholars Supporter: 

The G-R Dollars for Scholars Board is one again soliciting your generous support for our local college scholarship program.  Last year we were able to provide $18,500 in scholarships to twenty-two 2015 graduates of Gladbrook-Reinbeck Community High School.  Our goal again this year, with your generous support, is to award deserving 2016 G-R graduates with monetary scholarships in support of their continued education. 

We have attached a sponsorship form for you to clip and fill in with your desired information.  The top portion outlines the various levels of contributions.  Unless anonymity is desired, donations of $250 or more will be individually recognized at the annual Gladbrook-Reinbeck High School Awards Ceremony in May, 2016. 

We thank you for your past generosity and encourage you to again support our local business/organizational fund drive.  Your contribution will make a big difference, regardless of the size!  Your donation will: 
        ** Financially support and encourage G-R graduates 
        ** Be tax deductible to you 
        ** Be publicly recognized 

Thank you for your support of this important cause. 

The G-R Dollars for Scholars Board 

Note:  Would you be interested in being a Dollars for Scholars member?  If yes please contact me, Karen Kern.  Cell phone number 319-269-3243 or email me at karen.kern@usbank.com 




Gladbrook-Reinbeck teacher, Mr. Brady Swenson, and his Industrial Technology Woods and Metals Class students collaborated to design, create and deliver some very neat upcycled tables for the new Spanky's Restaurant in Gladbrook!  Each table has a different theme.  Check out the attached photos to see the students' work in progress! 


Spanky's Restaurant and Catering renovated the former Uptown Lounge in downtown Gladbrook. The building has a colorful past - at one time housing a theater and also a meat market.  Old pictures and memorabilia from the former theater and meat market will adorn the walls.  Gladbrook-Reinbeck Art students painted some of the murals, one of which resembles a theater curtain to commemorate the building's history.  


Spanky's opened for business last week.  Regular hours will be 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  Open on Sundays for events with a reservation.  If you're looking for a great place to eat in Gladbrook, stop by and admire the wonderful work that our G-R students contributed to this new venue!




Breakfast is served at G-R JH-HS and at G-R Elementary.  Price is $2.00/breakfast ($0.30 for reduced) for grades KG-12.


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!




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
