It's hard to believe that the school year has almost passed. The Gladstone Staff is busy planning for the upcoming school year. We would like to get some feedback on your Griffin's experience at Gladstone. Please take 15 minutes and complete our survey. The information you give us will help us better plan for the upcoming year! Thank you.
Class placement for students is one of the most carefully thought out decisions we make at Gladstone Elementary School. At Gladstone, we very carefully select students to be placed in our classrooms considering a variety of factors including, but not limited to: is there a balance of boys and girls; does the class have a mix of high, middle, and low ability students; class size equality throughout a grade level, a child's individual ability and learning style; and a child's level of independence and maturity. All of our classrooms have fully credentialed, talented instructors that are sure to help your child succeed. If there are consideration you wish to provide us as we plan for next year, you can pick up a consideration form in the office or download one by clicking HERE. Please remember, that specific teacher requests will not be considered and the form will not be submitted to the committee.
Our Griffins in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade will begin state testing soon. The 5th grade will begin first the week of April 25th, and the 3rd and 4th graders will join them the following week. This is a great time for our Griffins to show what they know about all they have learned this year at Gladstone. If you have questions regarding testing, please contact your child's teacher or email Mr. Ellis in the office. Remember, you can help your Griffin prepare for testing by making sure they get a good night's sleep, eat a healthy breakfast, and by reminding them they they have done great this year! There is nothing extra they need to do to prepare, just try their best!
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.
|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.|
