A big congratulations to Lake Avenue Elementary, one of 19 New York State schools to win a 2012 National Blue Ribbon Schools award! Given by the U.S. Department of Education, the blue ribbon award sets a standard of excellence for all schools striving for the highest level of achievement. Lake Avenue was nominated in the category of “exemplary high performing,” as one of the state’s highest performing schools as measured by performance on state assessments.
To celebrate, they are having a Blue Ribbon Showcase on October 20th from 3-6pm. Open to the public, the whole family is invited for a fun afternoon to celebrate their Blue Ribbon Award with free food, music, and fun! Come out and see what great things are happening at this award winning local school!
