Four SMMUSD Elementary Schools Recipients of 2007 CA Honor Roll School Award

 

SMMUSD is proud to announce that the California Business for Education Excellence Foundation and Just for the Kids-California, an affiliate with the National Center for Educational Accountability, have named four of our elementary schools to the California Honor Roll School for 2007.  The schools receiving this high honor are Franklin Elementary School, Roosevelt Elementary School, Pt. Dume Marine Science School, and Webster Elementary School.

 

The schools are being recognized for their outstanding success in raising student achievement.

 

“This award is a great honor for our schools,” said Superintendent Dianne Talarico.  “It’s wonderful to see our students, teachers, administrators, and staff receive well-deserved kudos for their hard work.”

 

The four elementary schools will receive the recognition at an Awards Dinner and Best Practice Institute on November 6, 2007, at the International Hotel in Century City.  The Institute will begin at noon with a luncheon, leading into breakout sessions that will feature panels with high-performing principals.
