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 kindergarten to represent the grade level. The Scholar of the Month recognition took place on Friday, May 13, 2016 at Batesville School to recognize Jayven Jasso.
Jayven’s winning essay included the following; “Why I should be chosen Scholar of the Month. I listen to my teacher and I am good at reading books. I am good at doing my homework.”
Scholar of the Month winners are 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.
