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 fifth grade. The Scholar of the Month recognition took place on Tuesday, February 2 at Benson Elementary to recognize fifth grade student Angelina Luna.
Angelina’s winning essay included the following; “I believe I should be scholar of the month because, I try my hardest all day everyday…..I have very good behavior skills. It would be an honor to be scholar of the month….I’m kind to all people and animals. I am smart and unique. I believe if you try all your life and you have a growth mindset you will achieve your goal. I give credit to my teachers for helping me become the wonderful, smart, and unique girl I am today.”
