Trustees Celebrate Castle Rock & Quail Summit Star Students, Parent Volunteers

February 18, 2017

WALNUT, CA--In keeping with tradition, the Walnut Valley USD Board of Trustees honored outstanding students and parent partners during the February 15 meeting.

Castle Rock Elementary parent Rowena Joe received the Partner in Education Award.

As Community Club treasurer, Rowena’s ability to work with the books and diligence to ensure a balanced budget have brought more to the Diamond Bar students, according to Principal Dr. Resma Byrne. Last year, each child received a $10 voucher for the school book fair.

Through her time, efforts, and professionalism, the school’s community club has thrived.

“Your poise, grace, and elegance will never be replaced. Thank you for your countless hours and dedication!”

Castle Rock 5th grader Jovany Flores received the Super Star Student Award for perseverance, determination, and endurance.

Twenty-first century learners think for themselves, analyze situations, and develop their own solutions.  

“Jovany embodies an IB student and has made us all proud! He consistently insists on pushing through, striving to produce work that demonstrates his grit,” Byrne added.

Quail Summit Elementary 5th grade student leader Julia Schlachter received the Super Star Student Award.

Julia shows a heart of compassion by giving up her recess time to work, connect, and interact with special needs students. 

“Her selfless nature has become a positive influence on other students,” said Principal Jeanette Koh.

Camfel Productions will be featuring Julia in upcoming nationwide assemblies on inclusion and compassion.

“We are so proud of Julia through and through!” Koh said.

Quail Summit’s “dynamic duo” Marcus and Terri Lotto were honored with the Partners in Education Award.

Marcus has been involved with the School Site Council for the past six years, and served as its chairperson. He also helps with all Community Club events, including working from dawn until midnight at the school carnival.

Terri is the Community Club secretary and serves as chairperson on the Santa Store and Book Fair committees. She doesn’t shy away from dressing up as an elf, pirate or even a donut to get the school excited for upcoming school events.

“We won the lotto with these parents! We love their enthusiasm, dedication and commitment!” Koh added.
