Gator Buddies, a concept similar to peer leadership, provides older students with essential leadership skills and younger students with the opportunity to ease into the transition of a full year of schooling.

During the event, students were able to participate in an assortment of team-building games, including a parachute exercise in the cafeteria and Valentine’s Day activities in several classrooms.
