COPLEY — Copley-Fairlawn Middle School students received a special visit from Cleveland Cavaliers mascots Moondog and Sir C.C. and in-arena host Ahmaad Crump and game announcer Olivier Sedra Feb. 10.

For two grading periods during the regular basketball season, the Cavs and Westfield Insurance reward students for high scholastic achievement through the Straight “A” All-Stars program. Copley-Fairlawn Middle School had the highest number of students submit perfect report cards during the first grading period with 264 report cards received, according to Cavs officials. To acknowledge the student’s perfect scores, the Cavs and Westfield Insurance hosted a pep rally for the school, and Principal Kathy Ashcroft was presented with a check for $1,000 by the Cavs and Westfield Insurance, shown above.

Each student at the assembly also received two tickets to a Cavs home game, according to Cavs officials.

According to Cavs officials, the contest is open to students in kindergarten through eighth grade who reside in Cuyahoga, Lorain, Summit, Medina, Portage, Geauga, Lake and Ashtabula counties.
