Rotary club donates dictionaries to Gladstone third graders
Continuing a long tradition, the Gladstone/Oak Lodge Rotary Club presented each third grader at John Wetten Elementary with a personal dictionary. Students immediately began exploring the book, excited to discover it included not only unusual words, but also information about the planets, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, maps of the continents, information about the 50 states, and biographies of the U.S. Presidents.

Tooth Taxi provides free dental care to Gladstone kids
The Gladstone Center for Children and Families [GCCF] hosted a visit from the Tooth Taxi, a mobile dental van that serves children across the state. Dental van staff provided free dental screenings to every student at John Wetten Elementary and the GCCF. Dentists provided additional services to 38 Gladstone students, including cleanings, sealants, fillings, crowns, and extractions. The care provided is valued at over $55,000. The Arrow Dental van was also on site providing free care to adults.
