West Manor Elementary held its second annual “Exceeds Luncheon” Wednesday for students who excelled on the 2010 Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT). To qualify for attending the luncheon at Benihana Restaurant in Buckhead, students in first and second grade had to score in the “exceeds” category in all three areas measured. Students in third through fifth grade had to score in the “exceeds” category in three areas tested, including math or reading.
A total of 113 students qualified to attend the luncheon, which was sponsored by a local business. Eighty-five students attended the event.
“We are so proud of our students,” said Principal Cheryl Twyman. “Some students remarked that they had never been to a restaurant like Benihana.”
