Editor’s note: Three student reporters for The Northside Eagle News, the school newspaper at Fountaindale Elementary School, attended the first STARS award ceremony of the school year and reported on the event. 

The following is compiled from the articles of Joshua Brooks, Dayanna Trujillo and Mae Weisenmiller:

On Oct. 16, Fountaindale Elementary School held its first STARS award ceremony of the school year. 

The student reporters attended the ceremony and interviewed some of the winners.

Santana from Mrs. Hartley’s class said, “I like representing how much I like this school.” 

Zachary from Mrs. Howerin’s class said, “I am very happy and overflowing with joy.”

They interviewed Ruby Williams, who was asked some questions. 

What was your favorite part of the ceremony?  Ruby said, “My favorite part of the ceremony is getting a picture with my friend.” 

How did you exceed the expectation?

Ruby said she did not give up if she was stuck on a problem.

 Ethan Eberhart, 9, received a rising star award recently at the end of lunch. 

Ethan’s award was for being a respectful student.

 The other two reasons are he was on green most of the time and Ethan helps his classmates when they struggle.

The sponsor was Taylor Bowen from Prudential Bowen Realty. 

He said it was great to be a part of the program. 

The STARS received a certificate and a T-shirt. Everybody seemed happy and proud. 

Will you be the next STAR?
