Students and Parents,
This year the Elementary and Junior National Honor Societies and the Global Gators have taken on the task of putting together what they hope is an amazing Spirit Week for everyone.  Their goal this year is to create events that the students will remember for years to come.  Please note that all of the dress down days are free throughout Spirit Week. We hope that everyone enjoys all the hard work the students put into planning the events!
Thank you - The Elementary and Junior Honor Society Students, Global Gators, and Committee (Ms. Boals, Mrs. Joyce, Mrs. Winters, Mrs. Winkler, and Ms. Turner)
