The Kiwanis Club of Temple City honored three outstanding students from Emperor Elementary School. Pictured with the proud students is long time Emperor teacher Mr. Greg Giangregorio.
Daniel is 12 years old and in Mrs. Scanlan’s class. He enjoys drawing and video games. Daniel said, “The best things about Emperor are the teachers my friends, and activities.” The best thing that ever happened was being born and being able to see the world. Personal goals are to build a giant Lego house (lifesize), to grow taller, draw all the Pokémon’s, and see improvement in his reading and math grades.
Ivy is 12 years old and in Miss Parrille’s class. She has two older brothers and enjoys listening to music, going on the Internet, and watching music videos. Ivy said, “The best things about Emperor are the nice teachers, the fun privileges, and the helpful students.” The best thing that ever happened was getting her dog Yoshi. Personal goals are to free from the fear of heights, get straight A’s, read more, and get better at math.
Thalia is 12 years old and in Mr. Giangregorio’s class. She has a younger sister and enjoys swimming, listening to music, playing basketball, and writing. Thalia said, “The best things about Emperor are the fun activities, privileges, the educated staff and great teachers, and friendly students.” The best thing that ever happened is going to Emperor since first grade. Personal goals are to build a homeless shelter, go to a good college, become a better basketball player, and make a difference in the world.
Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, Oak Avenue, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center. Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch. Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award. Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Mid Valley News, Temple City Tribune, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
