COMMON CORE STANDARDS
You may have heard that California and 47 other students 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.
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.
