News & Updates

Gator Color Run!

The color run is THIS Wednesday afternoon. Be prepared to see some very colorful gators after school! We can't wait to have a fun time with our Gator family! Thank you PTO for organizing this event!

Power of One--Donate a Toothbrush!

We are collecting toothbrushes through Crew to donate to Donate a Toothbrush! The purpose of our Power of One donation drive is to help students see that if we all give just a little, we can have a huge impact. If every student donates ONE toothbrush, we will have close to 1,000 to donate to an organization that is making a global impact. Send in one (or more) toothbrush/es with your gator to support our cause. Students can turn toothbrushes in to their Crew leader. Crews will earn 1 point for every toothbrush which will impact their score at Crew Cup in just a few weeks!

Washington, D.C. Trip

We are excited to announce an opportunity for your child to not only learn history but to live it as well!
