Hello Gladstone Street Students and Families!

I hope everyone had a fun and memorable summer vacation. 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).

School begins on Tuesday, August 19th.  We know that you are anxious to find out who your child’s teacher will be this school year.  The class lists will be posted in front of the school on Monday, August 18th at 4:00 pm. I encourage all parents to accompany their child on the first day of school.  Please feel welcome to walk your child to their new classroom and meet your child’s new teacher.

I am looking forward to meeting you on the first day of school!

Students Build New Garden With Help From Lowe's

  Thanks to the generosity of Lowe's Home Improvement store, Gladstone Street School has a new vegetable and flower garden. Fourth and fifth grade students jumped right in and helped to breakdown the old garden boxes and make new boxes. With the help of volunteers from Lowe's, two new garden boxes were made and plants were planted. The connection was made through Lowe's Heroes program. Thank you Mrs. DeLaTorre for making this happen. For more photos, see News.

Gladstone Street Welcomes Art Hinojosa

Our new principal Art Hinojosa is looking forward to greeting students and meeting parents.  When you have time, please stop by the office to say hello. Don't forget school begins on August 19.


Continue to save Box Tops for Education throughout the summer! 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. Beginning in the fall, box tops can be sent to school daily!

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, room 6!
