WALNUT, CA--During the September 18 meeting, the Board of Trustees paid tribute to a stellar Vejar Elementary parent and community member.

 

Angelica Calderon was spotlighted with the Super Star Student Award for being a leader and role model on campus.

 

The fourth grader helped launch a Good Deeds Club last year that has inspired school beautification, clean up, recycling, volunteer time, and kindness efforts.  

 

“We are so proud of the work she has done and continues to do as a Vejar star student!” said Principal Whitney Prenger.

 

Parent volunteer Heather Hoover received the Partner in Education Award for providing ongoing support in classrooms, supporting the school library, and coordinating a variety of activities – all with enthusiasm, heart, and service with a smile. 

 

“She is someone who truly cares for Vejar and definitely goes above and beyond!” Prenger added.
