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.

SAVE BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION DURING SUMMER MONTHS
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!
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, room 6!
Message from Principal Leslie Ford
In that I was a child who grew up in Azusa, I believe that I am called to serve this community. One of my goals is to work with the community, students, and staff to provide a collaborative interactive welcoming atmosphere at Gladstone Street Elementary School. I believe that your child will only make great educational strides by all of us working consistently with purpose and rigor to provide the strongest educational program possible. Only together can we make a difference for each and every child.

Opportunities for Students
Students at Gladstone Street have multiple opportunities to become a healthy, active well-rounded citizen. Governance activities like Student Council support students in learning how to organize, plan and promote events. Cheerleading/Dance bring out a physical, musical creativity. The Garden Club provides students with the knowledge and skills of growing vegetable, from seed to table.
Parks and Recreation give students an athletic outlet through participation in a myriad of sports and provide a homework club. Think Together, our after-school program, combines a little from all of the above. These well-organized programs support the gifts of all students. We appreciate and thank everyone involved in these programs for making an investment in our students and our school.
