Shaw Avenue Elementary School fifth-graders Briana Canas, Sergen Enosse, Hailey Feliciano, Madison Griffith, Kimberly Hernandez, Daniel Jawad, Alana McCoy, Edison Perez and Simran Shankar received a red carpet experience on April 26 as they were designated as March Students of Character. 

Fitting with Valley Stream District 30’s 2017-18 theme, “Show Your Character,” a select number of Shaw students from each grade level are nominated by their teachers on a monthly basis for displaying excellent character. During the fifth-grade ceremony, students lined the hallways as the honorees were announced. The nine students were awarded with a good character certificate and walked the red carpet as their peers cheered.

To conclude the ceremony, Principal Alejandro Rivera congratulated the distinguished students once again and reminded the classes to keep working hard as the school year draws to a close. 

“Be kind to each other, be respectful to each other and be caring to each other,” he said. “If you live by that, you will have a great life.”
