Marcy named 2019 National Blue Ribbon School
Marcy Elementary School was one of select schools in the nation recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2019. Less than one percent of schools nationwide receive the award, which is given in recognition of the school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
Marcy Principal Michele Trawicki said the award celebrates the dedication and commitment of Marcy students, families and staff.
“Our success is a collective effort driven by our passion for education,” she said. “Our staff does not take lightly the responsibility of educating students to help them reach their full potential. We embrace our challenges as a family to support every student’s unique needs and learning style.”
Public and private schools at all levels – elementary, middle and high schools – are eligible for the award. Each school that is given the honor of a Blue Ribbon Award shares several key characteristics. They:
- have administrators and teachers who are dedicated to high standards of learning for all students;
- engage in data collection and analysis to determine the efficacy of instruction and assessment;
- have students who demonstrate academic excellence; and
- undertake professional development to stay at the forefront of best practices.
Hamilton School District Superintendent Paul Mielke, Ph.D., congratulated the Marcy community for the distinguished recognition.
“Marcy has been identified as one of the highest-achieving schools in the nation, thanks to the work of committed staff, students and families,” he said. “Families can take great satisfaction in knowing that Marcy educators and students exemplify excellence in education.”
Marcy will be among 362 schools honored Nov. 14 and 15 at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. where U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos will celebrate with honorees.
