Kiwanis Honors Cloverly Elementary School Students

Temple City

The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized two outstanding students from Cloverly Elementary School. Accompanying the students is long-time teacher at Cloverly Mrs. Patricia Wenzel.
Kaylee is 11 years old and in Mrs. Stoke’s class. She has an older sister and enjoys crafts, gymnastics, and making videos.  Kaylee said, “The best things about Cloverly are my friends, the teachers, and fine arts class.”  The best thing that ever happened was moving to Temple City. Personal goals are to stop hunger in the world, build a huge gym in her backyard, being in the Olympics, become Miss Universe, and maintain her straight A’s.
John is 12 years old and in Mrs. Wenzel’s class. He has an older brother and enjoys playing soccer. John  said, “The best things about Cloverly are his friends, the teachers, and school spirit.”  The best thing that ever happened was finding a four-leaf clover. If he could change one thing it would have been no World War I. His personal goals are build a pollutant remover for air and water, maintain straight A’s, become better at writing, and to get into Advanced Orchestra at Oak Avenue.
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 displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
