Our district is filled with outstanding achievements and gains that our entire community can be proud of.
One of the moments that results in tremendous pride for me is when the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) announces the list of National Blue Ribbon Schools each year. Being selected as a Blue Ribbon Schools is one of the most prestigious awards that a school can receive. Each year, the DOE only selects about 300-350 schools to receive this designation and that includes all schools in the United States – public and private.
This year, we are thrilled to learn that Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary was named a Blue Ribbon School.
To the staff members, I congratulate you on achieving this distinction and I commend you for your hard work in helping students achieve. To the parents, I thank you for being part of the team that helps our students grow and learn. I would also like to thank our many community supporters for their assistance in providing donations and volunteering time in our schools.
These are challenging times, but with the combined efforts of our staff, parents, and community, we can all work to continue to help increase student achievement and celebrate our school's success. https://www2.ed.gov/programs/nclbbrs/index.html
