Makeila is 11 years old and in Mrs. Scanlan’s class. She has a younger brother and enjoys art, traveling, photography, music, reading, tetherball, shopping, and playing with her dog.  Makeila said, “The best things about Emperor, there are no bullies, the school is clean, and they have a kind staff.”  The best things that ever happened was getting a puppy and the birth of her brother. Personal goals are to build a huge mall, to get better in math, to stop fighting with her brother, and to get excellent grades so she can attend Princeton University and become a surgeon.
Benjamin is 11 years old and in Mr. Giangregorio’s class. He enjoys basketball, math, and playing Wii. Benjamin said, “The best things about Emperor are the clean campus, having enough exercise time, and the teachers are nice and helpful.”  The best thing that ever happened was coming to California and Emperor school.  Benjamin has personal goals of building an amusement park, getting a good CAT6 score, get straight A’s, and going to the 7th grade.
Abraham is 11 years old and in Mrs. Taylor’s class. He has an older sister and enjoys reading, playing board and computer games. Abraham said, “The best things about Emperor are my friends, recess, and math.”  The best thing that ever happened was going to Tokyo Disneyland. Personal goals are to build a famous amusement park, practice the violin, read more books, and to become a doctor or teacher when he grows up.
Each week the Temple City Kiwanis Club is pleased to recognize outstanding students and their teachers from Cloverly, Emperor, Longden, and the Dr. Doug Sears Learning Center.  Kiwanis treats students and their teacher to lunch.  Students receive a certificate, a letter for their parents, a bumper sticker, a gift certificate from The Hat Restaurant, and a photograph of them receiving their award.  Their photo will also be published in Temple City Life, Temple City Tribune, Mid Valley News, and displayed in the Temple City Unified School District lobby.
