SAVE BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Box Tops for Education can be sent to school anytime! Continue to save Box Tops for Education throughout the school year. Last year our school received about $1,000 from box tops collected during the school year. Box Tops for Education can be found on items such as cereal, tissues, toilet paper, diapers, crackers, and many frozen food items. Each Box Top for Education is worth 10 cents. Often packages will include more than one box top. Sometimes stores will have a promotion and will give a receipt with additional box tops.
Dear Gladstone Students and Families,
It is our vision at Gladstone Street Elementary to provide each of our students with the best educational experience! I greatly encourage all parents to participate in all of our school activities: Back to School Night, Open House, parent meetings, conferences, be a volunteer and be an active and engaged member of the various Parent School Advisory Committees: School Site Council (SSC); English Language Advisory Committee (ELAC); and the Parent Teacher Association (PTA).
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

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.
