From the clinic…

The clinic is in need of gently used clothing items of all sizes. The greatest need is for sweat pants and leggings and for undergarments. Donated items do not need to be new, just clean and in decent condition. Please consider keeping a change of labeled clothing in your child’s backpack. The clothing closet could also use some reorganization. Please call Nurse Denise at 317-860-4709 if you are able to help!

College and Career Week By Will Coffman

Hi Gators, Will here and I’m going to tell you a bit about what we did over College and Career week. Congratulations 4th grade, [Butler], for winning the SPARC DRIVE. Also Gators, it was so cool seeing all of you dress up as what you want to be when you grow up. I saw police, firefighters, Doctors, and a few army men. There were others too though. Now let’s talk about college. My favorite college is Butler and then tying for 2nd is IU and Purdue. I asked another kid in Gator Gazette named Rachel Snow, her favorite college is IU. Well that’s all Gators, see you next month.
