Thank You From Winterset!

On March 5th, 2022 there was a devastating tornado that hit Winterset Iowa. All of the Gilbert Community Schools hosted fundraisers to try to raise money and/or supplies for the citizens of Madison County.

We hosted a hat fundraiser where students could pay $1 to wear a hat for a day. We also held free will donations for supplies for the Winterset community.

We were able to donate a total of $2,394.60 as well as 3 full totes of supplies for the community!

We wanted to share this with you all and thank you for the donations! We could not have done this without your help!

April Fools Fun!

A few teachers around the district had some April fools fun! Mrs. Ostrem has a scientist of the month board that students help her decorate each month. These boys took it over today and made Dr. Doofenshmitrz from Phineas and Ferb the scientist of the day! Mrs. Weber brought the students brownies (brown E’s)!
