Twenty-nine fifth graders earned the President’s Education Excellence Award based on academic achievements, and students were recognized for honors and activities during the year. Recognition Day is special for our graduating fifth graders.
The President's Education Awards Program was founded in 1983 and honors graduating elementary, middle and high school students for their achievement and hard work. The President's Education Awards Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, in partnership with the National Association of Elementary School Principals and the National Association of Secondary School Principals. It was developed to help schools recognize and honor students who have achieved high academic goals through hard work and dedication to learning. Each year, thousands of elementary, middle, and high schools participate by recognizing deserving students. To be eligible for this recognition students must meet the following criteria:
Students are to earn a cumulative grade point average of 90 or higher on a 100 point scale in reading, writing and math during 4th grade through the 2nd trimester of 5th grade.
Students must score 90% or higher in national norm rankings in Reading Comprehension or Mathematics 1&2 on the 5th grade ERB administered test this past January.
