The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Longden Elementary School. Accompanying the students was their teacher Mrs. Ciana Lam.

Kelly is 11 years old and has an older sister. She enjoys reading and dancing. Kelly said, “The best things about Longden are my friends, the teachers, and the school is fun!”. The best thing that ever happened was meeting her best friend Isabella and getting Mrs. Lam for her teacher. Personal goals are to improve her handwriting, build a park for pets, work hard, help others, and do her best.

Rosie is 11 years old and has a younger sister. She enjoys riding her bike, playing cards, soccer, Girl Scouts, and Girls On The Run. Rosie said, “The best things about Longden are the supportive teachers, my awesome friends, and all the activities”. The best thing that ever happened was when she and her sister were adopted. Personal goals are to stop world pollution, build a food machine, become a babysitter, and visit cancer patients and do art and crafts with them.

Peter is 12 years old and has four brothers and sisters. He enjoys playing soccer and hanging out with his friends. Peter said, “The best things about Longden are the big playground, and Mrs. Lam”. The best thing that ever happened is having the best family and friends. Personal goals are to stop world wars and bring everyone home, build a hotel for the homeless, get good grades, have a good life, happy and healthy future

Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from C loverly, 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.
