FOR TWO delicious days, Dr. Dunn rewarded 4.0 GPA and high honor roll students with Panda Express and taco truck tacos. Students with a GPA of a 4.0 earned a Panda Express lunch with the principal, and students with a 3.7 and above got free authentic tacos.   There’s a lot of students with good grades, but there are 178 who have exceptional grades.

Those 178 kids all received 4.0 and were rewarded by having lunch with the principal, where he catered Panda Express. A lot of these students also participate in extracurricular activities and have still managed to get straight A grades. Getting a 4.0 is hard, especially when students have to juggle school with sports and other activities. These students show that they can do anything if they put their minds to it.

“It’s all about the work you put in,” Tue Tran (10) said. She believes everyone should strive to get a 4.0 to better their future. “It is harder [to earn a 4.0] in the upper class as compared to our freshman year,” she said. She believes any reward is good, but she also thinks that the reward could have been increased citizenship or decreased fines. She enjoyed the reward and appreciated that the principal acknowledged and rewarded all of them.

“It is a little hard, but as long as you follow directions, school is pretty easy,” Karen Gonzalez (11) said. Gonzalez found school to be a bit challenging, but she has been nailing it with a 4.0. To maintain such a GPA, she always does her best. She really enjoyed having lunch with the principal. She works hard and never gives up. She plans to finish strong this year, and she hopes to continue next year with 4.0 GPAs.

Tanahiri Arellano (11) balances her academics with cheerleading. She maintains a 4.0 and is doing her best to always do so. Arellano very much enjoyed the food they offered. She appreciated it immensely. “It was good, and I got to get to know the principal better,” Arellano said. She believes it is easy to get high grades as long as kids go to class and try.

“Busiest people will help the most,” Dr. Dunn said. He was very happy with all of the people who showed up. He likes to give recognition to all the kids that got a 4.0 by celebrating their achievements. He believes that most of the students that had a 4.0 are the ones who are very hardworking, and they’re also involved with sports and clubs. He believes that as long as you set your goals, you can accomplish anything. He plans on seeing more 4.0 GPA students in the future, and he knows that it will happen. He’s also proud of the students who earned tacos after landing on the high honor roll with 3.75 GPAs.
