MONROVIA – Students whose hard work translates into good grades get recognized in the PRIDE Club at Monrovia Elementary School.

The PRIDE acronym represents “Pupils are realizing intelligence is developed through education.” Club members have achieved either the “A” or “AB” Honor Roll, PTA member Quintessa Thomas said.

Thomas and Stacey Burrus co-chair PRIDE for the Monrovia Elementary PTA. Dr. Cheryl R. Davis, principal at Monrovia Elementary School, and the PTA sponsor this club.

“The PRIDE Club is a longstanding club at Monrovia elementary. The club’s main purpose is to recognize fourth- and fifth-graders that strive for and achieve excellence in their studies,” Thomas said.

Any student in grades 4-5 who has satisfied the grade requirement can join PRIDE. For each nine-week grading period, a student must attain grades of “B” or higher in each class to participate in PRIDE Club activities.

For club meetings, the Monrovia students gather by grade level. “Principal Dr. Cheryl Davis gives a congratulatory speech and recognizes students who recently enrolled in Monrovia elementary that made the PRIDE Club,” Thomas said.

In addition, Davis acknowledges those students who qualified for the PRIDE Club for the first time. “Then, we engage the students by asking and answering questions. The celebration culminates with awards, music and their favorite snacks,” Thomas said.

Monrovia elementary has approximately 550 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. The campus’ address is 1030 Jeff Road.

The Monrovia community can date its roots to 1870 when the Thompson and Allen families moved to Madison County from Monrovia, Mo. The families organized a voting precinct and named it ‘Monrovia’ as a tribute to their hometown in Missouri.
