Gator Gab – Week at a Glance for Week #13 – Nov. 26th-30th, 2018

Below is a peak at our week ahead followed by some important information items – have a wonderful week Gators!

Christmas Angel Tree

We are a wonderful community who looks out for each other. Christmas is a time that places great strains on families and we are there to support. Please consider buying a gift for a child in need. Gifts are starting to come in for our Christmas Angel Tree – Thanks for your consideration and generosity! … These gifts are used to help those within our SVDP and Blessed Sacrament Parish Community who may need our help. The Christmas Spirit is alive and well and this small but important gesture is just one example – again, thanks Gator Families!

Spirit Wear Reminder

We are excited to offer Gator Spirit Wear for purchase for our students, staff and parents!  We have several styles being offered, with items starting as low as $10!  Clothing is offered in your choice of either grey or royal blue and both youth and adult sizing is available. Some sizing samples are being delivered to the school but is always a good idea to order a little larger so that students can wear the items for more than one year and/or be passed down to siblings. A “winter toque” option will be added to our site early next week.

We are HOME OF THE GATORS and are proud of our long tradition of AWESOME Students, Staff and Parents and our GREAT SCHOOL SPIRIT! We celebrate School Spirit Days every Wednesday and proudly wear our school spirit wear and/or school colours (Royal Blue and Grey).

Our Spirit Wear Orders should arrive to the School in time for Christmas. All ordering is on line and will be “batched by classroom” to come directly to your child’s Classroom Teacher. Your child’s Teacher’s Name will appear in a drop down menu to assist with ordering. If this is a Christmas Gift, please inform your child’s Classroom Teacher to set it aside for you to pick up.

So lets ROCK our school colours and get caught wearing the GATOR!

Please visit the following website to view all available options for purchase.
