California Business for Education Excellence Honor Roll School for 2012
West Covina Unified School District announced today that Merlinda Elementary and 9 other schools in our district have been selected by California Business for Education Excellence (CBEE) as 10 of 2,108 public schools in California to receive the title of 2012 Honor Roll school.
The CBEE Honor Roll is comprised of “Star Schools” Award (871 schools) and “Scholar Schools” Award (1,237) schools. CBEE Star Schools are those with significant populations of socio-economically disadvantaged students that have shown a significant increase in grade-level proficiency over time. CBEE Scholar Schools are schools that are showing significant levels of academic achievement, but do not have a significant socio-economically disadvantaged student population.
We are so proud of our teachers, staff, students, and parents for the time and dedication that is put forth in order to accomplish such an award!
It was also announced that West Covina Unified School District was named as one of six districts to be named to the District Honor Roll by the California Business for Education Excellence Foundation for the “outstanding success our school district has made in raising academic achievement and closing achievement gaps” for our students. This is the first year CBEE has awarded this designation for districts that have excelled beyond their peers in serving and supporting students over time. This compliments the recognition West Covina Unified received by The Education Trust – West ED for ranking 4th, of 148 largest unified school districts, in serving traditionally underserved students who are achieving academic success in West Covina.
Approximately 65 students qualified to spray Mrs. Perriman with Silly String today! The kids had a great time and Mrs. Perriman was able to Silly String the students as well! (view video)

What is a Mustang? If you are thinking of a sports car you are partly correct. A Mustang is a free-roaming horse of the North American west that first descended from horses brought to the Americas by the Spanish. Mustangs are often referred to as wild horses.
