Fifty-three more students were honored by the Manteca Unified School District for posting perfect 600 STAR testing scores in 2013. Several of the students did not just achieve perfect scores; they have already done the feat twice or three times before.

Certificates of Achievement were handed out to each of the students just before the start of the Board of Trustees’ meeting last week.

A total of 105 students were recognized, 26 of whom were encore achievers of the same caliber once or twice in previous years. One student even received perfect score awards six years in a row. And, noted a delighted Manteca Unified Senior Director of Elementary Education Cheryl Meeker during the first award presentation, there is a large number of families with “multiple” perfect scorers this year that she has not seen in previous years.

At the conclusion of the awards presentation, the young achievers were congratulated by the Board of Trustees, Superintendent Jason Messer, and other school district officials. Light refreshments which included star-shaped cookies were also served to the students and their families.
