Each year students returning in grades two - 8 are invited to send in an essay for one of the two $100 Faculty Scholarships. The anonymous committee said that it was “very difficult to choose the winners.” The winner for the 2nd - 5th grade category is second grader Danna Zamarripa Garcia and the winner of the 6th - 8th grade category is sixth grader Thomas Wingerter. Students in grades 2 - 5 may have their parents help write the essay and students in grades 6 - 8 must write their own essay. Congratulations to Danna and Thomas!
For those who may not know, this scholarship is funded by the teachers when they purchase Smart Shopper cards. So they are supporting the school by buying the gift cards and the families by giving them an opportunity to receive some tuition help.
