The Farmingdale School District’s Woodward Parkway Elementary School recently hosted its annual 5th grade awards ceremony.  The event recognizes graduating students who excelled both in and out of the classroom. 

 

Olivia Grace Callahan was awarded with the Dr. Gary E.

Karp.   Olivia served as a mentor to kindergarten students, was a valuable member of the school’s Ambassador’s Club and was an active participant in the school’s band and chorus. 

 

Ronald “Ronny” E. Broadman III was presented with the school’s Board of Education Scholarship and Citizenship Award. The award is presented to students who demonstrate scholastic achievement, discipline and leadership.  Ronny is an avid reader who enjoys mathematics, science and history.  He was active in the school’s Odyssey of the Mind program, a member in the school’s orchestra and jazz band and a participant in the school’s Ambassador’s Club.  In addition, he mentored his younger peers as part of the school’s Friendship Club.

 

The Woodward Parkway Elementary School congratulates the following students who were additionally recognized at the 5th grade awards ceremony: Julia Badalamenti, Stephen Gerard Kessler, Olivia Grace Espinosa, Ritchy Alexis, Taylor Lewy, Natasha Pineda and Mathew Grieshaber.
