Hello Gladstone Street Students and Families!
My name is Art Hinojosa, and I am the new Principal at Gladstone Street Elementary. I am excited to join the Gladstone Elementary Family! 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).
SAVE BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION
Send Box Tops for Education saved throughout the summer to school with your child. 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.
