RECYCLE FOR CASH

  Did you know that Gladstone Street School has a recycle bin in the parking lot. Families and community members are encouraged to put items for recycling in the bins which include aluminum cans, glass bottles, and paper. Once a month the bin is picked up and the contents are taken to the waste management company for recycling. Profits from the recycling are used to purchase technology needs at school.

  Students in Mrs. Bell-Ramos' class are responsible for picking up recycling items from each classrooms each week.

  Thank you!

Missing A Jacket???

The lost and found bin is overflowing! If your student is missing a jacket, sweater, lunch pail, or other item brought to school, be sure to check out the lost and found in the multi-purpose room. Hundreds of misplaced and thought to be lost items are there.

AR READING HOMEWORK

   A school-wide Accelerated Reader (AR) homework project has been implemented this year. This program will help to increase student reading skills and achievements. Annual test results indicate that a consistent, mandatory reading emphasis will be beneficial to students in all grade levels.

   Each week students will be assigned AR homework nightly. This homework will include questions geared for fiction and non-fiction books and an activity to do to organize the answers to the questions. These activities may be a Thinking Map, list, illustration, outline, or other graphic organizer. Students will then write two or three sentences about what was read that day.

   This new AR homework will ensure students understand what is read daily in the required 20 minutes of reading homework.

   Parents sign daily to verify their student completed the AR homework.

Fifth Grade Band for 2017-18

  5th Grade Beginning Band Expectations. Welcome to beginning band! Below is some information about the elementary band program.

  Classes: There are two classes per week. One class will be held during your Music and P.E. day. Instead of attending your general music class, you will attend beginning band with the band director. The second class, you will be pulled out of your regular class for 45 minutes for your band instruction. Classes are held during school hours, not after school.

  Grades: You will receive a citizenship grade (Outstanding, Satisfactory, Needs Improvement, or Unsatisfactory) for participating in beginning band. In order to receive a favorable grade, you must attend class regularly and give your best, bring your instrument, book, pencil and accessories to class always, practice at home what you learned in class, and participate in scheduled performances. You must maintain an Outstanding or Satisfactory grade to be eligible for honor roll.

  Home Practice: Take your instrument home every day to practice what you have learned in class. Set aside 15 to 30 minutes every day to review and practice old and new musical concepts and songs. Find a quiet place where you can practice without distractions or interruptions. If you have close neighbors, please inform them that your child is in the band program and will need to practice at home a few minutes a day as part of their homework.

  Instrument Care: It is very important that you take care of your instrument in order for it to continue working and responding properly. Never allow your siblings to hold or play your instrument. Do not allow your friends from school to hold or play your instrument. Never share your mouthpiece with anyone. If you use a reed to play your instrument, do not share your reeds with your friends. Reeds are very expensive and sharing used reeds is unhealthy. Keep your instrument clean and your case clean and organized. Do not store your book or extra stuff in your case, unless you have extra storage space that will keep your book or extra stuff from touching your instrument. The band teacher will show you how to keep your instrument clean and well maintained.          Performances: There will be 1 to 3 performances towards the end of the school year to demonstrate to your parents and peers what you have learned. Most performances are during a school assembly or activity. You will have one evening performance in May. This is your end of the year concert, where you will perform alongside other 5th grade beginning band students at one of the two high school’s gymnasium. Make sure you have a semi-formal outfit for this event.

  For more information, contact your band director Mrs. Marchena at 626.622.2974 (text or call) or email: vmarchena@azusa.org

PBIS Teaches Positive Behavior to Eagles

   PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Support) is a proactive positive behavior program used to create and maintain a safe and effective learning environment in school and beyond.  Students are taught and revisit expected behaviors throughout the year. Students learn about expectations in the classroom, cafeteria, computer lab, library, office, restrooms, halls, playground, and at dismissal and pick-up.

   At Gladstone St. a clip up/clip down behavior management system is used. Every student begins the day on green - Ready to Learn. Students can clip up to blue - Good Choices; purple - Great Job; and pink - Super Student. Clip down to yellow - Think About It; orange - Teacher's Choice; and red - Parent Contact. Throughout the day, clips can move up and down allowing students that clipped down for inappropriate behaviors to clip back up!

   When students display good behavior, Eagle Bucks can be earned and then redeemed at the principal's store. When a student is "caught" with good behavior an Eagle Buck may be presented along with an explanation of "why" the Eagle Buck was earned. Students are learning that good and positive behavior has its rewards. Making positive choices is a life-long skill.

Eagle expectations are:

1.  Be Safe

2.  Be Respectful

3.  Be Responsible
