Congratulations to our staff, parents, and students for achieving this honor. This recognition has been a long time coming. We all share in this honor and equally deserve it by working together to solve problems, “mining” data rich information from assessments/practices, and commitment to excellence. We are proud of this Award! Though we have a great deal of work before us and we plan to use this “momentum” to propel us to the next level.
