Gator of the Month!

Congratulations to Andrew for being our November "Gator of the Month"! Andrew is always respectful, trustworthy, and kind. He is a great listener and a hard worker. Andrew got a cool bracelet, was announced on our morning announcements, and his picture will be posted outside of the cafeteria. Way to go Andrew!

Book-It

Congratulations to the following students who completed their November Book-It form. They each read 16 books and got a coupon for a free pizza from Pizza Hut. Way to go! I hope more will participate in December.
