Emmalyhn Spires from Berry Elementary is Imperial Beach South Bay Kiwanis October 2015 “Student of the Month”.

Please welcome and congratulate our Student of the Month Emmalyhn Spires from Berry 
 Elementary. Emmalyhn’s teacher, Christina Guinther, wrote Emmalyhn is a hard worker, motivated and never gives up. Last year she scored advanced in both math and language arts on the state tests. She has a strong understanding of mathematical concepts and number sense. When given a math problem she uses different strategies to solve it and perseveres until she figures it out. She is an avid reader. Not only does she excel academically, she is incredibly responsible and respectful.
