When Emily Corvalan started at Jackson Elementary, Principal Michele Miller said she or the young student’s mom would have to carry her to class.
Now a confident fifth-grader, Emily walks into Jackie Tweed’s class ready to learn. “Emily is an outstanding student,” her teacher said. “She has a terrific attitude and everything she does is top-notch.”
To celebrate Emily’s hard work, she was named Student of the Month at the May 7 Rotary Club of El Dorado Hills meeting.
In addition to being a great student, Tweed said Emily is a kind, respectful and optimistic young lady. She made the Jackson Elementary honor roll and also plays in the school band.
“I’m confident she’s going to do well in her future,” Tweed added.
Emily received a plaque, $50 and a round of applause for her efforts in and out of the classroom.
