Summer is in Full Swing!

I hope you're having a fabulous summer!

I know the weeks before school begins will be filled with a flurry of activity for you and your families - wrapping up summer reading, getting books and supplies in order and making sure all the uniforms are in good shape.

I hope you're also able to enjoy some relaxing time bonding with family, exploring new places and just being still before we return to our hectic schedules next month.

We look forward to reconnecting with you at our August Mothers' Guild Meeting and at our other back to school activities.

Thank you for your ongoing support, Gator families.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Mothers' Guild President 2021-22
