The 4th grade students participated in Round 1 of 3 Lake Shake today. Round 2 will be tomorrow with 21 students to eliminate down to 7. The winner of this Lake Shake will be announced on Friday.

Lower Campus Reading Celebration

Langston Moore and Preston Thorne visited Lower Campus today to celebrate all the reading students have done this year. They talked about how important it is to challenge your mind and never give up. These former USC football players are the proud authors of the book #JustaChicken.

It is always amazing how many books students check out each year. This year students checked out 56,125 books. They took Reading Counts tests on over 39,000 books. This year we had 212 students earn their t-shirts and 29 students earned over 500 Reading Counts points! Great job Gators!
