     HAMDEN — The Academy of Kempo Martial Arts recently held a Special Recognition Evening to honor their “Academic Achievers.”
     “Throughout the year I collect report cards from our students to monitor their progress in school. This helps us to know how we should gear our character development program to better help the children and it allows us to help our students with their goals. This also allows us to give positive reinforcement to the children who are doing well and who are improving from one marking period to another” said Shihan Frank Ciarleglio. “At the end of the year the report card will reveal the progress that has been made throughout the whole year. It is with this report card that will I determine whether our students have earned a position as an Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Academics Achiever.”
     Grades are not the only thing that qualifies someone to be an Academics Achiever. Ciarleglio looks at the whole person by considering the comment, work habits, and social skills sections of their report cards.
     “The students must also be demonstrating the qualities of an Academy of Kempo Martial Artist: respectful, self disciplined, self controlled, helpful, honest, generous and kind to others,” said Ciarleglio.

     Congratulations to the first annual Academy of Kempo Martial Arts Academic Achievers for the 2011 - 2012 school year: Gabriel Ciarleglio, Julia Voinov, Imaan Masood, Oliver Stevens, Benjamin Arnold, Carlos Oyuela, Heidi Oyuela, Elijah Blocker and Katherine Bergher-Hall.
     Each child was recognized at a special event and awarded a certificate for Outstanding Achievement in Academics, Work Habits and Social Skills. Along with their certificate each Academic Achiever was also given a metal for their outstanding character.
