Gladstone provides the opportunity for our parents to receive updates via text message about dismissals and events happening at school.  You can text (213) 394-4634 or text 81010 and put @gladstone5 in the message to sign up and receive texts from Gladstone Elementary. You will then be asked to put in your name, which appears on the school master list, and that's it! This is a free service, subject only to any text msg rates that may apply from your phone service. Multiple people in the same family, daycare, and others are welcome to sign up. This is a one-way text messaging system and your personal information will remain confidential (the school does not receive the phone number you enter into the system). If you have any questions about this opportunity, stop by or call the front office.
This year, Bonita USD is offering parents an option to order and pay for the bus pass online through MySchoolBucks payment system.

Where are the pick up zones for students after school?
Please remember, the parking lot directly in front of Gladstone is reserved for staff only. After school, the parking lot is restricted to School Busses and Day Care Vans.  At the 1:10, 2:05 and 2:50 dismissals, parents are welcome to park in the Shellman Ave parking lot or on Gladstone Street in front of the Kindergarten playground. Please remember that the Shellman parking lot is closed to incoming and outgoing traffic between 1:55 and 2:15pm. This allows us to have maximum safety for students riding the bus and students with special needs. If you ever have a question regarding where to park, feel free to email or call the school so we can help you choose an appropriate location.

Reading Tip to Help Kids Learn to Read

Research has proven that students must practice their reading skills over the summer in order to keep the skills they have learned. That means reading every day for at least 30 minutes. Don't fall into the slump make sure to read every day.

 How the Brain Reads

Work with your child to help them know that if they are struggling with learning to read, it is NOT a measure of how smart a student is. Difficulty in reading comes from where in a person's brain direction comes from. Review the Brain Research on How the Brain Reads presentation with your child to help them know this important fact.
