February Scholar of the Month Batesville School

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 9 at Batesville School to recognize fifth grade student Dakota Flores.

Dakota’s winning essay included the following; “I would like to be Scholar of the Month because I love school. I do all my school work. I would like to further my education by going to college...I am a great student and do my best to succeed all year.”
