Good Morning Gladstone Families,
We hope that this email finds you all well and that you have had an enjoyable summer. Just a few updates as we approach the first day of school...
Principal: I will be at the school as Principal until September 12, 2023. The process for securing the new Principal has started. On September 5th, Superintendent Celia Caetano-Gomes will be at the school to meet with staff and with parents/guardians. Our first Parent Council Meeting then, will be on Tuesday, September 5th at 4:00 pm in the Library, for any parents/guardians who would like to meet with Mrs. Caetano-Gomes to share some thoughts about the new Principal for Gladstone. If you plan to attend, please send me an email to confirm your attendance (firstname.lastname@example.org)
First Day: The first day of school for grades 1 - 6 is on Wednesday, Sept. 6. Staff will be outside to meet students starting at 8:45am. Dismissal is at 3:30 (students will be brought outside). The first day for Nursery and Kindergarten students is on Monday, September 11, either from 9:00-11:30 or 1:00-3:30 depending on whether your child is in morning or afternoon class.

Lunch Program: We have a lunch program that is available for students, for parents/guardians who are working and/or attending school.
