Carla Canchola- MYP Year 1
I think that Carla Canchola is BALANCED. She is always focused on her school work but she also has things to do outside of school. She works hard to complete her school work and get good grades. She does, however, know how to keep a good conversation going. This is why I recommend Carla for balanced.

We are so proud of our award winning writers!
Congratulations to Wendy Gutierrez, Olukemi Adelakun (not pictured), and Andrea Korte, the winners of the Kiwanis Club of the North Shore, Rev. John Hudson Citizenship Essay Contest for 8th Graders. The topic this year was “An Influential Elder”. Students were asked to discuss how an older person (someone other than a parent) has influenced their life. Each winner was treated to lunch at the Fireside Inn on Tuesday, May 14th and received a cash prize. Keep up the great work, Peirce writers!
