On Friday, Oct. 7, the gym at Idyllwild School saw several assemblies as students and parents attended the school’s smARTS award ceremonies held to recognize student achievement. Photos by Cid Castillo

One of the fun awards was when Idyllwild School Principal Matt Kraemer had to do a student’s work for 15 minutes. First-grader Octavia Several chose homework, which apparently Principal Kraemer does not like to do either.

Another coveted award, aside from the many scholastic achievement honors, is getting to sit in the principal’s chair for a whole day. Idyllwild School Principal Matt Kraemer hosts first-grader Levi Davis, who gets high-fives from fellow students.
