West Boundary Elementary School (WBES) held a WILD recognition assembly last Thursday afternoon.

At the beginning of the assembly Osoyoos Kiwanis Club member Wayne Sargent presented awards to three “Terrific Kids”—Danika Pigott, Peyton Spani and Solannah Bosovich. Terrific Kids are students who demonstrate the following attributes: thoughtful, enthusiastic, respectful, responsible, inclusive, friendly, inquisitive and capable. As well as a certificate and a bag of swag each of the Kiwanis Terrific Kids was given a bumper sticker for their mom or dad’s vehicle that brags of being the parent of a Terrific Kid.

Student achievement day at West Boundary and Beaverdell Elementary Schools celebrates learning, citizenship, and school spirit. They call it getting WILD and the event is a cross between an awards ceremony and The Price is Right game show. You become WILD by being recognized in one of six categories: by making the Honour Roll or the Merit Roll, by being a WILD Learner, having a WILD Attitude, being a WILD Home Reader, being a WILD Extra- Curricular, and by being a WILD Leader. Being on one of those lists qualifies your name to be drawn to compete in a quick game of skill, luck—or both.

WBES WILD Learners are students that are working to their potential and students that come to school every day ready to learn. WILD Attitude is shown by being supportive of each other, positive, volunteering, caring, and being charged with school spirit. WILD Readers are those students who have met their goal every month. WILD Extra-Curricular students are recognized for participating in activities that go beyond regular class work. WILD Leaders recognizes those students who volunteer their time to others and are seen investing energy into school programs.

The Merit and Honour Rolls for term one were:

Grade 4 Merit: Caitlyn Best, Harley Stewart, Jade Davison, John Mark Alba, Katelyn Hesketh, Layla Bruce, Savanna Elliot and Wade MacDonald.

Grade 4 Honour: Daniel Macfarlane, Emma Harsch, Jennifer Grob, Lauren Fraser, Ronan Goodrich, Skyra Elliot and Wyatt Lasai.

Grade 5 Merit: Jade Fossen and Kayden Eaton.

Grade 5 Honour: Jayden Uphill

Grade 6 Merit: Aven Duncan, Colin Grob, Yolanda Fenwick-Wilson and Jack Williamson.

Grade 6 Honour: Antonia Bergendahl, Emily Davison, Hanna Harpur and Matthias Bergendahl.

Grade 7 Merit: Dominick Pigott, Grace Geen, Mikayla Klumpp and Reise Cornell.

Grade 7 Honour: Adele Fossen, Faith Zitko, Riley Condon, Rosemary Steele, Sarah MacDonald and Shealyn Waller.
