Kiwanis Honors Cloverly Elementary School Students

by Jerry Jambazian

The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized two outstanding students from Cloverly Elementary School. Accompanying the students were Principal Stephen Martin Edo and teacher Ms. Andrea Saldana.

Kody is 12 years old and is in Ms. Saldanas’ class.  He has an older sister and likes to play basketball, play video games, and listening to music.  Kody said, “The best things about Cloverly are the great assemblies, teachers, and the Instructional Resource Center.”  The best thing that ever happened was being born.  Personal goals are to stop violence in the world, construct a building in space, go to college, become a professional basketball player, and read 1000 books.

Shawn is 11 years old and is in Ms. Carlson’s class.  He has an older sister and enjoys playing the violin, playing basketball, science and astronomy.  Shawn said, “The best things about Cloverly is the friendly, helpful atmosphere, and the diversity of Cloverly by sharing new ideas.”  The best thing that ever happened was when his parents signed him up for Pre-Algebra in the 5th grade.  Personal goals are to help homeless people, build a peace monument, become a better violin player, get on the honor roll, and focus on the subjects he struggles in.

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 Mid Valley News and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.

Temple City Kiwanis has been serving our community since 1939.  Members are dedicated men and women who desire to make a difference in the quality of life for the youth of Temple City.  Kiwanis meets at 12:00 noon each Tuesday at Denny’s Restaurant.  To find out more about Kiwanis, please contact Jerry Jambazian at (626) 643-9460.  You can also visit their website at www.templecitykiwanisorg.
