Gators of the Week: Art Work Selected for Display at Columbia Museum of Art
The artist statement of the piece is this:
“Healing Daughter” shows a girl going to the only pure and virtuous place she has access to for healing: nature. Victims of human trafficking have nothing to go to for help or support. With the abundance of nature, it guarantees those strangled within this darkness a place where they can be surrounded by virtue and purity to help heal their profound wounds. Therefore, this piece shows that even the numerous fatherless and homeless people affected by human trafficking still have the guarantee of being able to call this beautiful world home, created by the biggest father of all time.
His efforts on continuing to raise awareness of this enormous issue will only increase. Some of the money won will go into making prints and replicas of this piece to donate to art auctions whose money is going to organizations that help victims of human trafficking.
The piece will be on the museum until April 1st and is advertised on all of the TV’s of the state museum! Gabe is so thankful for the awareness his piece has spread.

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
