Two Sixth Graders Win Four Awards

Two sixth graders were the recipients of four awards Tuesday night at the Board of Education meeting. Principal Lauren Valentino introduced the students to the board and made the presentations.

Kallyn Hagarty received the Frank C. Reilly Award, which is given to a student who has done outstanding work in creative writing. The Munch/Langendoerfer family, of which Reilly was a member, annually sponsors the $25 award.

Kallyn also took home the Adele Winn Service Award for being the student who, in the opinion of school staff, goes the extra mile. Winn was a former Botelle teacher and the $25 award is provided by the Adele Winn Endowment Fund.

Robertson Bazzano was given the Jean S. Keiller Memorial Award, established in 1991 and named for another former Botelle teacher. This award, also $25, recognizes a child who shows sensitivity and compassion toward fellow students, who exhibits a caring and sharing attitude and who demonstrates respect for each person’s differences. 

The award is provided by Jean Keiller’s daughter, Ann O’Brien, and family.

Robertson also received the Susan A. Bruso Memorial Award, given annually to a student who shows good sportsmanship and exemplary character and leadership in athletics. Bruso volunteered at the school for many years as a basketball and softball coach. The winner of the $50 award is chosen by the physical education teacher.

Another award is slated to be presented at the June school board meeting and additional awards will be given out during the June 10 sixth-grade promotion ceremony.
