The Kiwanis Club of Temple City recognized three outstanding students from Emperor Elementary School. Accompanying the students is Emperor teacher, Mr. Greg Giangregorio.
Matthew is 11 years old and in Mrs. Scanlan’s class. He has an older brother and enjoys making catapults and balistas. Matthew said, “The best things about Emperor are my sixth grade teachers and the effort they give us, and my best friends.” If he could change one thing it would be that everyone has a chance for a good job and attend college. Personal goals are to build a robot Army factory for all the brave soldiers, get straight A’s for the third trimester, to receive AP honors classes in his sophomore year, and have a stable financial career later in life.
Sabrina is 11 years old and in Mr. Giangregorio’s class. She has an older brother and enjoys art, studying and watching animals, playing League of Legends and Maplestory. Sabrina said, “The best things about Emperor are they usually make learning fun, the friendly people, and the many good teachers.” The best thing that ever happened was getting her pet hamster. Personal goals are to make school shorter, build a animal shelter, get all A’s, Get 100% on tests, and to get better at the violin.
Sasha is 12 years old and in Miss Parrille’s class. She enjoys gymnastics, tennis, swimming, and shopping. Sasha said, “The best things about Emperor are the amazing teachers that make me interested in school, all my classes including science are interesting, I get to see my friends everyday.” The best thing that ever happened was getting her teacup Pomeranian fluffy. Personal goals are to help all homeless people find a home, maintain straight A’s, move up to advanced gymnastics, and do a service project for people in need.
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.
