On Friday, October 12, 2018, Roche Avenue Elementary held a HERO assembly. The students listened to Porterville Police Chief, Eric Kroutil speak about being a HERO at school and in the community. In addition, the Walmart Distribution Center chose Roche Avenue as the school they wanted to award for their safe driving campaign. Walmart presented us with a check for $2000.00! As an extra bonus, all of the students signed a Walmart semi truck. As a final celebration, students in 4th-6th grades were recognized for their achievement on the 2018 CAASPP. Students who met or exceeded standard in English Language Arts and Math were given certificates and t-shirts.
