SCHOOL OF RECOGNITION!
State Superintendent Tony Evers announced 167 Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition awards for the 2013-14 academic year, an honor that recognizes success in educating students from low-income families. Two of Superior’s schools were honored this year with this distinguished honor: Lake Superior Elementary and Northern Lights Elementary.
“What a great way to start the school year,” Evers said. “By recognizing schools for their success at educating our students, we put the focus where it belongs: on our children.”
The state superintendent hosted an awards program at the State Capitol on Oct. 8 to further recognize Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition award recipients. Each school received a plaque and $500 for use by the school.
“The staff and administration of these schools are committed to breaking the link between poverty and low-academic achievement through rigorous programming and attention to student needs,” Evers said. “The partnerships these schools create among teachers, parents, administrators, other school staff members, and the community, provide an educational environment that supports children’s learning so our students graduate college and career ready.”
At Northern Lights Elementary, Erika Suo, fourth-grade teacher, and Mary Anderson-Petroske, assistant principal, were very proud to represent their colleagues and students.
Anderson-Petroske said, “We gathered in the Capital’s Rotunda, and I think the pride we felt was immense. At the ceremony, I could see in my mind’s eye our staff and students’ determination that I am honored to witness day in and day out. An emcee of the ceremony said, ‘Those that are the least likely to seek recognition and praise are usually the most deserving of it.’ The staff and students at Northern Lights are so deserving of this award.”
Suo commented, “I was very honored for the opportunity to represent Northern Lights. Our hard work has fostered success for our children. The dedication of every member of our Northern Lights community has contributed to this success.
