A typical Friday morning student assembly at Marengo Elementary School includes spirited celebrations and ways to foster a positive, cohesive school community, but rarely does it feature someone the students consider a celebrity.
On Oct. 27, Marengo students and staff honored former Principal Patricia Cheadle with a hearty Marengo Lions “roar.”
The assembly featured a special school song performance, questions and answers about Cheadle’s new job with South Pasadena Unified School District, and a gift presentation from the school’s PTA and staff.
For the occasion, students and staff came together to thank Cheadle for her seven years of service at the school, which included earning a National Blue Ribbon School Award and a California Distinguished Schools honor.
