IMPORTANT SCHOOL INFORMATION
For important information re: school start & dismissal times, breakfast at school and bus stop schedules and locations, please see the "Important School Information 2015-2016" article in the REBEL NEWS section below.
Several years ago, the Iowa legislature and the Department of Education gave Iowa school districts the option to continue to count student contact days or to switch to counting student instructional hours. Most districts, including G-R, made the switch to counting hours. Under this system, students must attend school for a minimum of 1,080 hours (the equivalent of 180 days times 6 hours per day).

Dear Dollar for Scholars Supporter:
GLADBROOK-REINBECK CLASS PROJECTS
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!
NICE JOB REBELS!
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!
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
