Golden Oak Elementary School Assistant Principal Raymond Carr, Daisy Quispe, and instructional aide Maribel Garza.

The Kiwanis Club of Shafter honored the Richland School District's Terrific Kids last week.

Each month, the principals and assistant principals from Golden Oak Elementary School, Redwood Elementary School, Sequoia Elementary School and Richland Junior High School bring students deserving of recognition for their accomplishments in school to the Kiwanis luncheon. This month, students were honored for the character trait of "capable."

This month, Golden Oak Elementary School was represented by Assistant Principal Raymond Carr, who introduced Daisy Quispe. Daisy is not only "capable" in her own right, but also is consistently checking up on her younger brother's progress at school.

Redwood Elementary School Principal Luis Rodriguez, Valerie Diaz, Valerie's mother, and Valerie's grandmother.

Redwood Elementary School Principal Luis Rodriguez introduced Valerie Diaz. Valerie is an outstanding student who is not only learning the standard subjects at school, but has added playing guitar and learning soccer into her school participation. Valerie "wowed" the Kiwanis gathering with her rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" to open the luncheon.

Sequoia Elementary School Assistant Principal Jennifer Painter introduced Alina Amparo as Sequoia's Terrific Kid. Alina is a smart, sassy, and fun student, as well as capable.

Richland Junior High School Principal Rosa Romero introduced Jesenya Orihuela and Roberto Gonzalez. Jesenya, who started the year off "rocky," has demonstrated much care in how well she is now doing. Roberto has demonstrated a big difference in attitude this year, always wanting to do better.

The Kiwanis Club of Shafter congratulates the students in their accomplishments. Each student received a certificate, T-shirt, sticker and pencil for their accomplishments.
