Gertie Belle Rogers Elementary
Welcome GBR Visitors
Just a reminder that our water fountains remain CLOSED for drinking. The water bottle filling station is open for students to fill their water bottles. Parents, PLEASE make sure your student brings a water bottle from home to use as they do get thirsty throughout the day - especially after PE and / or recess. Please make sure their names are on the water bottle.
The school has very few water bottles to give the kids.

Students Council Challenges All Classes to a Penny War!
All of the money that was collected, which amounted to over $1800.00 was donated to our local VFW - Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Hats off students on a 'WAR' well done!
Thank You From the Library
Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures for our Veterans display in the library. The display turned out awesome. A big shout out to Ben Sevigny who loaned us different uniforms, and a helmet to display. He also donated patches, hats and t-shirts that I was able to give away to students whose names were drawn for good behavior. Students were so proud to show off their family members pictures and tell stories about them. For December a few of my classes will be reading Christmas Jars. We will create our own Christmas jars to display in the library and donate our earnings to worthy recipients in or around Mitchell.

GBR Food Drive
Our GBR School Climate Committee recently held a food drive and made it a contest between the classrooms. The classroom with the most food items brought in won a Culver's concrete mixer party. The items were then taken and donated to the Mitchell Food Pantry. Mrs. Budahl's first grade classroom was the winner of the contest with bringing in 110 items for donation. The class really enjoyed their ice cream party!
