We honored four outstanding students from Cloverly and Oak Avenue. Accompanying the students from Cloverly was Mrs. Sally Stokes and Ms. Amanda Kasuyama from Oak Avenue.
Jeffrey is 11 years old and in Mrs. Stokes’ class. He has an older sister and enjoys piano, violin, drawing, writing literature, clay modeling, basketball, and Lego building. Jeffrey said, “The best things about Cloverly are the new computer labs, the Spirit Rallies, and games played during P.E.” The best thing that ever happened was becoming Student of the Month. If he could change one thing it would be to have kids play more games outside than online. Personal goals are to build a starship that could send people to other planets and back, become an author, travel around the world, and learn different languages and instruments.
Nicholas is 11 years old and in Mrs. Saldana’s class. He has three older sisters and enjoys playing soccer. Nicholas said, “The best things about Cloverly are the good campus and the nice teachers and staff.” The best thing that ever happened was when he scored his first soccer goal. If he could change one thing it would be that people not do bad things. Personal goals are to build an amusement park for all ages, become better in school and soccer, and help people that are in need on money and food.
Devan is 14 years old and has a brother and sister. He enjoys baseball, football, and drawing. Devan said, “The best things about Oak Avenue are the awesome teachers, the cool Principals, and all my friends.” The best thing that ever happened was finding $20 on the ground. If he could change one thing it would have been to be a better student last year. Personal goals are to build a baseball field for Oak, keep his grades up, get a scholarship to USC or UCLA, and convince his mom to stay in Temple City.
Mililani is 13 years old and has an older brother and sister. She enjoys school auxiliaries, baking, food, culture, and learning the Korean language. Mililani said, “The best things about Oak Avenue are the amazing teachers, education standards, and the effort the staff put into Oak Avenue.” The best thing that ever happened was going to Washington D.C. and other east coast cities in the 5th Grade. Personal goals are to get an A in Math, get into an honors class for her Freshman year, and to one day speak fluent Korean.
