Golden Gate Elementary Third Grader Wins State Award



Congratulations to Golden Gate Elementary School third grader Addison Cruz! Addison won first place in the statewide 2021 Celebrate Literacy Week Writing Contest for Grades 3-5. Students in Grades 3-5 were requested to read a book from Florida’s B.E.S.T. Standards Civics Booklist, draw on information and inspiration from the book, and write a proposal on how they would like to affect change. Addison's essay was about wanting to make a change in the world by helping the homeless, just like Eleanor Roosevelt. Great job, Addison!
