Profiles in Character
Pixley Elementary students win Squad Goal Award

At the annual Reading Revolution event, Pixley Elementary students Cassandra Leon, Walley Alamsi, Sophia Maldonado, and Cynthia Villa won the Squad Goal Award for their extraordinary sportsmanship when faced with a difficult situation.

“Our students were so proud to receive the Squad Goal Award yesterday,” said Pixley teacher Dena Deatherage. “We talked about it in the car on the ride back to school and how it's better to be honored for your character than any other type of award. They were just so happy and kept talking about how it was the best day ever.”
