Talking to Mrs. Stevenson by Madi Kammer
Hi gators it is January, and this month’s trait is Positive Attitude. Going into 2016 and the second semester it is important to have a Positive Attitude, so you are successful inside the classroom and out.
Mrs. Stevenson makes professional and personal goals, at the start of the new year. What are your goals? Setting goals is part of a reflective practice, which helps us use our Gator G.R.E.A.T.S especially, having a positive attitude.
Shout out (a special one) to everyone that helped with The Evening with Santa. I hope everyone enjoyed their time away from South Creek to enjoy the holiday season with their families and friends. Speaking of holidays, what items did you get from Santa? Write them down and send it to me.( I am at 325 Trustworthiness Court And send it through gator mail) I am very excited to see what you guys got. I might think about putting some in next month’s paper.
Keep looking out for information about College and Career Week. And family Game Night . Tell me what you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a singer and a baker also a karate superstar.
I have a Question for your parents have you liked South Creek’s Facebook page if not PLEASE DO IT NOW IT HAS A LOT OF INFORMATION ABOUT THIS YEAR! My motto for South Creek is “We are gators and we know it”
Bye guys tune in. next time maybe even get your name in the paper. This was Madi Kammer from the Gator Gazette coming in with some big news!

NFL Playoffs are Coming by Cooper Mills
This month starts the NFL playoffs (the road to Super Bowl 50). The Panthers are doing really good. They have a good chance of winning this year. Last year in Super Bowl XLIX the Patriots won vs the Seahawks, 28-24.
My prediction is that the Patriots will win vs the Bengal’s in the AFC championship.
I predict that the Packers will win vs the Panthers in the NFC championship.
My final prediction is that the Packers will win vs the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Who do you want to win Super Bowl 50?
Talking to Teachers by Christian Castillo
This month I interviewed your favorite Mrs. Curtis. To me she said that for Christmas she will be spending time with family members and eating lots of food [Family+Food=Happy]. She even added her New Year’s resolution. It is that she always want to be thankful to her friends & family[and us GATORS!]. This month she didn’t add a quote so I guess this the end . Thank you gators and stay tuned to “Talking to the Teachers”!!
The Polar Express by Rachel Snow
Guess what happened at South Creek….The Polar Express!
Every year the fourth graders of South Creek do a musical called the POLAR EXPRESS! It is based off a famous book that people read around Christmas. The kids act out the Polar Express and sing songs including, Hot Chocolate, Santa got a cold on Christmas, and Wishing on a star. The fourth graders invited all of South Creek’s students to see it. The fourth graders put in a lot of work into it. We hope all the kids enjoyed it.

Guess the Book by Cami Bland
HI gators! How is it going? Well, it’s me, Cami with a book review for the month of January.
In this book there is a girl who was enchanted at birth. She was given the gift of obedience. Some of the stories that have been told of her obedience have become memories. Like the one on her 8th birthday. Her cook gave her some cake and immediately said eat, of course the girl obeyed and dove into the cake right away. Until someone said stop she ate. She had to be obedient at all times.
If you can tell me the story, you win! And you get your picture on the Gator Gazette!
The New Year by Madi Kammer
Hi, I am Madi and this is the importance of the New Year.
It all started when Mr. Roets became stricter to Cami. He said that “ it is a new year and I will be less strict” and that is his new year resolution.
A new year resolution is when you challenge yourself to something you think you need to be better at. Here are some ways that you could be nicer here at South Creek: 1) Say nice compliments to the lunch ladies. 2) Give your teacher flowers for being an awesome teacher.
That is why a new year can be so important. Don’t forget you need to challenge yourself to something new and most importantly have fun, but be safe.
