Gibraltar Schools, in partnership with the family and community, will strive for excellence in educating each of our children to live responsible, creative and fulfilling lives in a global society.
Makenna Ash is a senior on our girls basketball team. This particular game Makenna scored her 1000 point against Sturgeon Bay. Prior to this game, the last girls basketball athlete to score 1000 points graduated in 1982. We are very excited with this accomplishment that she has worked so hard for. She also broke the record for most points scored after a 1000.
Makenna has played on the varsity team since she was a freshman. She will be greatly missed not just on the basketball court, but also as a wonderful young lady.
Shelby Kahr Gold Key Awards
Gibraltar Senior, Shelby Kahr, was recently awarded 3 gold key awards and 4 honorable mentions for her artwork in the Scholastic Art & Writing Competition. A jury of artists, art professionals, and teachers review the nearly two thousand entries to select those works that will be honored.
As a recipient of three gold key awards, Shelby's work will be on display at the Milwaukee Art Museum in the regional Scholastic Art Awards Exhibition from February 7th to March 22nd 2015. After the exhibit, all Gold Key Awards go on to compete at the national level competition in New York. Congratulations Shelby!

Gibraltar High School Student Council Blood Drive
The Gibraltar High School Student Council blood drive held this month was another big success. Our goal of 25 collections was both met and exceeded, ending with a total of 29 collections. In turn this will help save 58 lives. Due to the fact that both of the drives we held this school year were successful, we were able to earn scholarship money for our senior members. A special selection committee will review who receives a scholarship and for what amount it is for. Thank you to all of those whom donated blood and saved lives!
FYI: The Student Council will be seeking donations to increase the scholarship fund this year. If interested, please call or email Mary Witteborg at: email@example.com.
Viking Voice Wins Best Newspaper for Schools Award
On Friday, February 27th the Wisconsin Newspaper Association held its annual awards banquet at the Milwaukee Marriot. Each year, the WNA holds the Wisconsin Better Newspaper Contest, in which three Wisconsin high schools are recognized as having the best newspaper in the categories of enrollment under 500, 500-1000, and 1000+.
The Viking Voice was recognized as having the best newspaper for schools with an enrollment of 500 or less. As a result, the newspaper was rewarded with the Branen Scholarship for general excellence. Viking Voice members traveled to the banquet where they received the award and also were able to hear a keynote speech delivered by UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank.
