Student of the Month: Emily Corvalan

By From page A3 | May 14, 2014

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 ┬áin her future,” Tweed added.

Emily received a plaque, $50 and a round of applause for her efforts in and out of the classroom.
