Hey Gators. 2nd quarter ends next Thursday, January 28th. The end of quarter 2 also marks the end of first semester. Now is the time to make sure you are passing all of your classes. If you have specific questions about your grade in a class, please contact your teacher directly using the private chat feature during class, sending a Remind, or sending them an email. Now is the time to finish strong!
Due to the end of the semester, there is no school on Friday, January 29th.
Have a great weekend and remember the words of a former Gator, Dom Cooks-
"It is and always is a great day to be a Gator! Yitadee!!!"
