Message From The Principal

Congratulations! We finished our first full week of the 22/23 school year. We have accomplished a great deal. Gator students are easing into their routines. I enjoy interacting with students, and I love seeing them discover new content and expand on the knowledge that they have.


I believe that all schools should prioritize three areas: Student safety, student success, and creating lifelong learners among all students and school staff.


For students to learn, they must feel safe at school, both in the classroom and around the school campus. That is why our Gator Staff works very hard at the start of the year with setting up class routines, going over campus routines, and reviewing parts of the handbook with students.


Parents, please put safety first when dropping off your student in the morning or picking your student up in the afternoon.


Friendly Reminders:


  • Please walk your student across the crosswalk.
  • Do not leave your child unattended at our school gates.
  • Remind your student to listen for their name at pick-up time.
  • Teach them the color of your car.
  • Please review the traffic maps that have been sent out to you in our newsletters.
  • Do Not Drop off students in the middle of the Parking Lot.
  • Consider going through the drop-off line. It really does go fast in the mornings.



We appreciate your patience the lines are getting faster.


Our Gator community is AWESOME. Thank you for going with the flow this week when we had to change where you cross.


Thank you again for all of your support, supplies, and kindness. We are off to a wonderful start.


Have a safe and wonderful weekend

Mrs. Graham
