Our partners!

The Gladstone School District is grateful for scores of partners who help our students in ways big and small every single day.  Thanks to our 1,100 volunteers to the dozens of grant funders and partner organizations, we are able to meet the needs of the whole child, from academic support and extra-curricular activities to mentorship, counseling, and family services.

If you are interested in partnering with or donating to Gladstone Schools, we invite you to work with us.  For more information, call Lennie Bjornsen at 503.780.2658 or Leslie Robinette at 503.974.5077.
