Earlier this month, Flowery Elementary School selected fifth-graders Anthony Carranza and Nora Ligotti as the school’s Students of the Year.
Carranza was selected as Student of the Year by Flowery for his high academic performance, excellent citizenship and integrity. Carranza is described as a dedicated student who always puts forth his best academic effort. He scored advanced on the most recent STAR tests in English language arts.
He is an active member of the school community, he serves as a conflict manager and as a member of Flowery’s STARS after-school program. Best of all, Carranza is a role model to his peers. He is described by his teachers as caring, positive, supportive and as possessing a strong work ethic and excellent study habits.
Outside of school, Carranza excels in all sports, particularly baseball and basketball; and is a terrific older brother. He loves math and plans to attend college to become an engineer.
Flowery selected Ligotti as Student of the Year thanks in part to her model citizenship, her excellent academic performance and her strong character. Ligotti’s teachers describe her as a determined, engaged and independent learner, with an extraordinary ability to retain and apply new information across all academic areas.
