Fine Arts Boosters Spirit Yard Signs!

If you have a student who participates in speech, dance team, color guard, band, choir, jazz band, art or is just excited about school, these signs are for you!

The signs cost $25/sign if ordered by Friday Oct. 11th. Orders for signs received after that will cost $30.
Signs are 18” x 24” in size and made of durable corrugated plastic with UV protected ink to prevent fading and come with metal stakes. Proceeds from sign sales go toward supporting fine arts activities at Gilbert schools. You will be contacted when your sign is ready for pick up at school.
Signs are not limited to just GMS & GHS students. They are available to students of every grade. They can be customized in any way you want, and can be used to reflect your school spirit.
Use the attached Google order form to place your order.  If you prefer to fill out your order by hand, please print and complete the PDF form that is attached to this email. If ordering more than one sign, please submit a form for each sign. One check can be used to pay for multiple signs.

Thank you for supporting the fine arts at Gilbert!

Welcome to Gilbert High School

At Gilbert High School, we are dedicated to helping Every Student Every Day succeed by putting our vision into action.  The daily actions of all staff and students create a culture of encouragement and pride through the active application of our Vision pillars: Respect, Integrity, Growth, and Pride.  Our staff currently serves over 507 students in grades 9-12.  Our growing district seeks to offer outstanding programs and learning opportunities while maintaining a small-school feel. Modern facilities, a one-to-one laptop initiative, an emphasis on project-based learning and many school-sponsored clubs make GHS a great place to go to school.  GHS was awarded the 2014 Blue Ribbon Schools Award by the United States Department of Education and received an exceptional rating on the new Iowa Report Card. Only 1% of high schools in Iowa received this high of a rating.  At GHS, we believe Every Student, Every Day is the key to our success.
