    ATTENTION:TIGER FANS WHO WATCH OUR BROADCASTS ON iHIGH

    We have switched our broadcasts to another service. Here is a link to the new website we will be broadcasting all TIGER events. 

    You will no longer be able to watch games from the iHigh site.

  • You are cordially invited to participate in the high school student council’s 5K Colors of Cancer Run/Walk on Sunday, September 21, beginning at 3:00 pm in the Gilbert Elementary School parking lot. We’re raising awareness and honoring those within the Gilbert family (current and former students, staff, parents, and community members) who have ever been diagnosed with any form of cancer.


    Come early to enjoy the music and conversations with our honored guests.  The high school cross country teams will be throwing colored powder on your shirt at various stations along the route. You may choose to walk along the path behind the elementary school if you’d prefer and still experience the fun of the colored powder.


    We’ll recognize, as a group, those within our Gilbert family who have dealt with this disease, and Joyce Lauridsen (elementary school secretary currently battling ovarian cancer) will say a few words.


    If you’d like to order a t-shirt for this event, please leave a message for Cathy Anderson (student council advisor) at the high school (232-3738) by September 2. Leave your contact information and the sizes you’d like. Shirts are $10 each.  Click Here for the form.


    All proceeds will go to the Iowa chapter of NOCC (National Ovarian Cancer Coalition). Larry McHone will “start” the race if he is able. He and his first wife, Marty, founded the Iowa chapter of NOCC many years ago.


    The colors on the t-shirt were chosen purposefully to represent as many within our Gilbert family as possible (gold for children’s cancer, teal for ovarian cancer, pink for breast cancer, purple for pancreatic cancer, light blue for prostate cancer, orange for kidney cancer, lavender for all cancers, and plum for caregivers).
