Carolyn Maevers’ voice is all I heard as I entered Stafford Elementary’s cafeteria Thursday morning. One name after another was being called as the students came up and accepted their awards. Everywhere you looked there were proud parents, grandparents, other family members and very proud students enjoying the last honor assembly of the school year.
Students were being awarded for all A’s, all B’s, all A’s and B’s, no lost tiger paws, turning in all of their homework, and many other achievements. Many, many awards were given out this last six weeks, which explained all of the happy faces.
“We have had a wonderful year this year. It has gone very quickly. Our students have been so well behaved and it seems as though they have worked very hard to get awards. They have taken more pride in their work this year. I am just very proud of them,” said Carolyn Maevers (principal).
Ms. Maevers told the students that even though school is out they are to remember they are still Stafford Tigers and need to remember that they represent their school. She also told them how proud she was of all of their achievements.
Well done Stafford Elementary! See you next year.
