  • 1. The Gator Gazette Dear Isenberg Family, It is such an honor to say that we have had a great year thus far and I look forward to several great experiences for the remainder of the year. Our first quarter has been very successful with all students participating in!Guided Reading lessons, PBLs, the weather balloon launch as well as other fun events outside of the instructional day such as Movie Night, Fall Festival and After School Clubs. I am always glad to see learning going on where students are participating and leading the activities. To our wonderful students I say, “You are all leaders in your own right and I ask that you continue to strive to be the best ‘Investi-GATORs’ of knowledge that you can be.” As always, GO GATORS!!
