The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Emperor Elementary School. Accompanying the students were Emperor teacher Miss Mary Ann Parrille.
Casey is 11 years old and in Miss Parrille’s class. She has a younger brother and enjoys playing golf and cooking cakes. Casey said, “The best things about Emperor are my friends, the playground, and awesome teachers.” The best thing that ever happened was having a photo taken with swimmer Michael Phelps. Personal goals are build a mind reading machine, get good grades, to hug President Obama, and go to a women’s golf championship.
Isaac is 11 years old and in Mrs. Scanlan’s class. He has a younger sister and enjoys playing soccer, camping, learning about astronomy and the cosmos, and visiting Yellowstone National Park. Isaac said, “The best things about Emperor are my loyal classmates, awesome computer lab, and the Principal.” If Isaac could build one thing it would be a shoe that could shape/shift into any boot, cleat, sandal, or sneaker. Personal goals are to attend Cal Tech, have his first job at Starbucks or a carwash, and to read as much as he can.
Tiffany is 12 years old and in Mr. Giangregorio’s class. She has a younger brother and enjoys dancing. Tiffany said, “The best things about Emperor are my awesome homeroom teacher Mr. G, my friends, and my teachers Miss Parrille, and Mrs. Scanlan.” Personal goals are to have world peace, build a school for disabled kids in Africa, get straight A’s, go to college, and have great health for her family and friends.
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.
