For the first time, all proceeds from this event will go to the ASB (Associated Student Body).
Areas funded by the ASB include the following:
- Individual stipends for each classroom, to purchase supplemental instructional materials to be used by students this year (i.e., Books for classroom libraries; individual-size whiteboards; specialty art supplies; etc.)
- Field trip funds, to help pay for buses, admission costs, guest speakers, etc. (Additional donation requests may still be sent out for some field trips as needed. )
- Supplemental instructional materials for each grade level to enhance units of study (i.e., Books for literature focus units; supplies for inquiry-based, NGSS science lessons, manipulatives for math lessons)
Please know that donations generated through the 2019 Gator Gallop go to directly benefit students, both in the classroom and grade level capacity.
