March Scholars 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 fourth grade and the third grade to represent the grade level. The Scholar of the Month recognition took place on Tuesday, March 8, 2016 at Batesville School to recognize fourth grade student Crystal Munoz and third grade student Natalie Ramos.

Crystal’s winning essay included the following; “I hope I am selected [as Scholar of the Month] because it’s been my dream. I am a member of the following clubs Newspaper, Green Thumb Club, and Safety Patrol. I am intelligent and like to help people out. I do my school work and homework. I am never off task and always do what my teacher tells me.” 

Natalie’s winning essay included the following; “Wow I’d love to be Scholar of the Month! I am well mannered and responsible. I am responsible because I do my homework on time and do what my parents tell me to do. I love helping my friends, family and school teachers. I should be Scholar of the Month because I help people.” 

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.
