PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCE - MINIMUM DAY SCHEDULE
Gladstone will host Parent Teacher conferences on Tuesday - Thursday, March 3rd - 5th. As a result, school will dismiss for all grade levels at 12:25pm on those days.  Please remember that parking will be tight as we dismiss all grade levels at once.  Arrive early if you wish to park in the Shellman Ave lot, and remember the front lot is for bus parking only. Thanks, in advance, for your patience and cooperation.
 
GET INFO FROM GLADSTONE VIA TEXT MESSAGE!
This year, Gladstone has provided 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 @gladstonee (yes, there are 2 e's at the end) in the message to sign up and receive texts from Gladstone Elementary. 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).

COMMON CORE STANDARDS
You may have heard that California and 43 other states are adopting new standards.  These new standards are already being implemented across the Gladstone campus. If you would like to view a brief video about the new standards, take three minutes and watch this video. Or, you can take a look at this flyer, created by the National PTA.
 
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.
