Red and White…. AND BLUE RIBBON!
Pleasant Valley Elementary Named a National Blue Ribbon School
The U.S. Department of Education has named Pleasant Valley Elementary in the Peters Township School District as a National Blue Ribbon School. This year, 304 schools were designated as 2011 National Blue Ribbon Schools based on their overall academic excellence or for their success in closing achievement gaps. The Department will honor the entire 255 public and 49 private schools with their National Blue Ribbon School awards at a conference and awards ceremony Nov. 14-15 in Washington, D.C.
“On behalf of the Pleasant Valley Family, we are extremely excited to be recognized as a Blue Ribbon School,” said Michael Fisher, Principal at Pleasant Valley. “The success at Pleasant Valley can be attributed to our dedicated faculty and staff, supportive parents, community, and past educators who have set the standard for Pleasant Valley’s tradition of excellence.”
Pleasant Valley was recognized among the highest performing public and private schools as measured by their performance on state assessments. A total of 14 schools in Pennsylvania were awarded this honor.
