January's character award winners along with Mr. Giannicchi, Mrs. Bush, and Mrs. Rogers officially opened the school's brand-new book vending machine. These seven winners earned tokens to choose a book as a prize for winning this month's character award in self-discipline. The machine was purchased thanks to a very generous anonymous donation and books were donated by the ALES PTO and classroom teachers. Recently, the book vending machine committee was notified they won a $250 Rotary Club mini grant to be used for books. Our elementary Gators are excited by the possibility of being awarded tokens for making positive choices and having good character. Special thanks to the book vending machine committee: teachers Jen Rogers, Erik Jones, Katie Hirliman, Marilyn Strong, Christine Miller, and school librarian Rosemarie Grainer.
