Assistance League volunteers honored 137 students for academic achievement this month. Both Bethune Elementary School in Minneapolis and Maxfield Elementary in St. Paul had students who were honored for testing at grade level or above in both reading and math. Our Academic All Star program recognizes students each year with a special awards ceremony, including a presentation of special shirts, wristbands, and photos of each student. One boy shared that he had improved several grade levels in reading this year and was obviously thrilled to be recognized as an Academic All Star. Congratulations and a big HOORAY to all of the students!
