Once again, 230 students in grades five through eight were recognized at the third quarter recognition breakfast celebration at Kenney Middle School.
The Hannibal students received awards for perfect attendance, honor roll and high honor roll for the third quarter. Students who raised their grade point average by five points or more were also recognized.
“I have to say that I am so proud of each of you who are sitting here today,” said Principal Dee Froio. “This is the most difficult quarter to earn recognition. If you are sitting here, you are pretty special and putting forth a tremendous amount of effort.”
Last quarter, Froio challenged the students to empower their friends by encouraging them to strive for success as well.
She said she was pleased to see many new faces at this quarter’s celebration, and encouraged the students to bring even more friends with them for the last quarter celebration.
In addition to the awards and the breakfast, each student also received a raffle ticket to enter into a prize drawing.
Fifth grader Lane Rawls selected a new basketball as his reward.
