Good Evening Gator Families,

Thank you to all the families who donated their treasures for our Holiday Extravaganza! The students at Sam Sherratt had a wonderful day selecting gifts to bring home for the holidays. Thank you to our parent volunteers for all of their hard work in making this event so memorable and fun for our students. Sam Sherratt Rocks because of YOU!

Thank you to our Kindie Team for hosting craft day for Kindergarten families. The cookies, hot chocolate and crafts were amazing! There were lots of smiles and giggles. Thank you for your hard work!

A reminder that our holiday concert is next Wednesday, December 20th.
