By Monte Vista Elementary School Principal Theresa Jones

LAS CRUCES – Monte Vista Elementary School held its fourth annual Monte Vista Fifth Grade Gala May 15. 40 fifth-grade students and their families were invited to attend the evening event.  Students were recognized for both academic and leadership qualities. Students were treated like stars as they walked the red carpet, were greeted by paparazzi and had various opportunities to pose for pictures with their families, friends and teachers. Each student was recognized by his or her teacher and received a trophy. The evening culminated with a special dessert and ice cream bar enjoyed by all. It is a tradition that our fifth-grade students look forward to at the end of a successful school year.
