All About Me by Rachel Snow

Hello, my name is Rachel Snow. I’m eleven years old and in the fifth grade. I’ve been at South Creek since kindergarten. My kindergarten teacher was the really awesome …….Miss.Butz!!!!!!!!!!!!! When I was in kindergarten I adopted a little brother named, Sam. Now he is in second grade and we go on lots of vacations. I am super excited about middle school but the one thing I will miss most about South Creek is my old teachers. I would like to thank my previous teachers and my Gator Gazette teachers, too. They are all super awesome for putting up with me over the years and a special thanks to all my friends for helping me get through fifth grade.

BYE SOUTH CREEK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Goodbye by Cooper Mills

Goodbye Gators I have had a wonderful last year at South Creek.

I can’t wait to go to Middle School, but I will miss South Creek.

I loved talking about Sports. It was so FUN!


Goodbye by Madi Kammer

Good Bye Gators.

Gators it is so sad to say goodbye to SC. The thing I am going to miss the most about SC is all the wonderful students and staff. The thing that is wonderful about SC is the convos put on by Mrs. Adams. The teachers that I had were amazing. I loved being in all the clubs the leaders of the clubs were awesome at their jobs. I will love to start another 3 years of my life just like I did here. I will definitely miss all my friends younger than me that will still be here at SC. Goodbye gators.
