Kiwanis Honors Emperor Elementary School Students
The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Emperor Elementary School. Accompanying the students was Emperor Principal Ms. Kathy Perini.
Abigayle is 12 years old and in Mr. Giangregorio’s class. She has a younger brother and enjoys drawing, playing the piano, singing, and animating. Abigayle said, “The best things about Emperor are the wonderful Principal Ms. Perini, the teachers are always glad to give you extra help, and the parents are very involved so we have lots of volunteers.” The best thing that ever happened was discovering a whole new version of art on her DSI. Personal goals are to stop poaching, animal abuse, hunger, build a sanctuary for cats, improve her math grades, become a veterinarian, stop procrastinating, and improve her health.
Justin is 12 years old and in Miss Parrille’s class. He has an older sister and enjoys basketball, outdoor play, and sports. Justin said, “The best things about Emperor are the staff and teachers, recess, and students.” The best thing that ever happened was going to Emperor, meeting all his good friends and friendly teachers. If he could change one thing it would be to make his Emperor experience last. Personal goals are to build a time machine, get better grades, and improve in basketball.
Alison is 12 years old and in Mrs. Scanlan’s class. She has an older brother and sister and enjoys reading, dancing, and day dreaming new ideas. Alison said, “The best things about Emperor are the staff, education, and activities.” The best thing that ever happened was making her first best friend. If she could change one thing it would be to stop procrastinating. Personal goals are to build a homeless shelter, get her priorities straight, dividing her time wisely, and become nicer, kinder, and more understanding to her siblings.
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.
