April Scholars of the Month - Anthon Elementary

Uvalde C.I.S.D. has partnered with IBC Bank and KVOU Radio to promote and encourage scholastic excellence among students. Students enter an essay-writing contest with the topic “Why I Should be The Scholar of the Month.” Teachers choose one composition to represent their classroom. Compositions are turned into a campus leadership team, which selected one winner from the second grade and the first grade to represent the grade level. The Scholar of the Month recognition took place on Friday, April 52, 2016 at Anthon Elementary to recognize first grade student Jason Aguilera and second grade student Jonathan Martinez.

Jason’s (Picture to the left) 
winning essay included the following; “I want to be the scholar of the month because I try my best even if I get it wrong I just believe in myself. School is the best place I have ever been. I thank all the staff for helping me learn and the principal for helping me be safe.” 

(Picture to the right) winning essay included the following; “One reason I should be scholar of the month is because I want to be like my dad because he helps the country be safe. This why I want to be a Border Patrol when I grow up, because helping the country is important to me.” 

Students were presented with a $100 savings bond courtesy of IBC Bank, will be mentioned in congratulatory announcements on KVOU Radio, and enjoyed a congratulatory lunch with school administration, parents, representatives from IBC Bank and KVOU Radio prepared especially by Southwest Excellence Foodservice for the special recognition.
