Pack the Backpack!

An exciting note from Kix 101.1

It’s that time of year again! It’s time for Iowa’s Best Country, KIX 101.1 & Central Office Supply, a division of Minute Man, in Marshalltown to team up & PACK THE BACKPACK for local area teachers! Don’t forget to remind ALL your teachers, parents & even students to nominate those teachers who go above & beyond to help out their students, classrooms, other teachers or the entire school! Every month we will pick one teacher & that teacher will receive a $101 in school supplies of their choice from Central Office Supply! Nominating a teacher is easy, just go to & click on the Pack the Backpack banner. There you will find all the info you need to submit a teacher. So let’s all team up & help our area teachers! We look forward to all this year’s entries.

Welcome to Gilbert Middle School

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Gilbert Middle School.  Since its start in 2006, GMS has been widely recognized as a top-rated middle school with a proud tradition of student success.  The staff works exceptionally hard to provide our students with a safe and caring environment where relationships and connections are key.  Our teachers appreciate and value the uniqueness of adolescents and provide learning experiences that are rigorous and relevant, offering deep exploration of issues that hold value beyond school.  Our many activities, interventions, enrichments and extracurriculars help us meet the district’s challenge of “Every Student, Every Day”.

The middle school years are a time when students grow and develop socially, emotionally, physically and academically.  We appreciate this opportunity to share the journey with you. As the school year unfolds, please keep in mind one important thing – You Belong Here!

Go Tigers!
