Richwood, WV – The Cherry River Elementary School held their annual awards day on Wednesday, May 29, 2019.
Every student got recognized for a kind, helpful, or studious act they did throughout the 2018-19 school year.
Over six students received an award for faithful attendance, which awards students who miss three or fewer school days. Along with them, was Megan Williams, who got recognized as the only student with perfect attendance.
In addition to those students, six others won the Citizenship Award, which is an award given to kids who work hard every day and are friendly and kind to their peers.
Perhaps the most joyful class was the Kindergarten class. As we all know, Kindergarten is the first year of actual schooling. It does take a bit of time to adjust, but the kids always find a way to enjoy the class and get through the treacherous school year consisting of education, recess, and naps.
Avery Miller, a Kindergarten student, got recognized as the class timekeeper, weatherman, and the most improved student. As he received his award, in excitement, he shouted a couple of words, which put a smile on the faces of those in the audience.
Lastly, but not least, was Avery’s classmate, John Parker McClung. John got recognized as a marathon scholar. When he received his award, with utter excitement, John pumped his fist in the air and placed his hand on his classmate Avery Miller’s shoulder.
The Cherry River Elementary School’s Awards Day was a success. There was a good number of people in the audience, and the kids had a blast.
