FAIRFIELD — The clinks and clanks of swinging medals were easily heard Wednesday even with a packed multipurpose room filled with of hyped-up children and parents at Nelda Mundy Elementary School.
“I’ve got to tell you, that sound is not annoying,” Principal Kristen Cherry said from the podium. “It’s awesome.”
Cherry was in the middle of awarding hundreds of medals to the children, rewarding the group for their work on the California Standardized Testing and Reporting results released earlier this month. That score was a 943 and upcoming scores are likely to be even higher.
She said the state has yet to make the scores official from the last round of testing. Still, Cherry said the school will come out between 950 and 955. That would place it first in the district, the county and the state when compared to similar schools, she said.
