On Tuesday, Mr. Arne Duncan, the Secretary of Education in Washington D.C., announced the Blue Ribbon school winners for the 2015 school year. We are extremely excited and proud to announce that our school is among the winners!
At 1:30 p.m. the announcement was made during an all school assembly. In addition to all students and staff, we were honored to have the following people join us during this momentous occasion: Archbishop Lucas, Superintendent Mr. Patrick Slattery, Fr. Stillmunks, Fr. Don Shane, Fr. Hans, Board of Education President Mrs. Amy Ellis, and Home and School President, Mrs. Denise Snodgrass. Following the assembly, students went back to their homerooms where they learned more about the award and viewed a video which highlights our school.

This recognition is quite a great honor:
