This week, the Calfornia Department of Education (CDE) released the 2011 CST Similar Schools Rankings.  This takes the CST results from May of 2011 and compares them to 100 schools that the CDE has determined to be similar to Gladstone.  The schools are then ranked by API score and assigned a ranking from 1(lowest) - 10 (highest). Gladstone received a ranking of 10 - the highest possible score! Congratulations!! Once again, your hard work is shining bright!

Library Hours for Summer AR Reading
Keep the learning going this summer by visiting the Gladstone Library once a week to check out books and take AR quizzes.  Our library and computer lab will be open each Tuesday, beginning 6/19 from 10:00am - 12:00noon.  Mrs. Gilbert-Jones, Mr. Wong, and Mrs. McCool will be here this summer to help oversee the summer reading program.  If you got your summer connection book and would like any assistance with those, you can get some from the staff at Gladstone as well.  Finally, if Tuesday mornings aren't great for your schedule, libraries throughout the district will be open for you to take AR quizzes.  The schedule of all the school libraries is located HERE.

Reading Tip to Help Kids Learn to ReadTop of Page

Research has proven that students must practice their reading skills over the summer in order to keep the skills they have learned. That means reading every day for at least 30 minutes. Don't fall into the slump make sure to read every day.

 How the Brain Reads

Work with your child to help them know that if they are struggling with learning to read, it is NOT a measure of how smart a student is. Difficulty in reading comes from where in a person's brain direction comes from. Review the Brain Research on How the Brain Reads presentation with your child to help them know this important fact.
