Brumby Elementary and King Springs Elementary schools have been named 2014-2016 Schools of Excellence by the National PTA. Both schools were recognized for their achievement in building effective family-school partnerships, and were among just 170 schools nationwide to receive the two-year designation.
Both Brumby Principal Amanda Richie and King Springs Principal Linda Keeney were thrilled with the honor, and were excited to hear that their schools each would receive a National PTA School of Excellence banner.
“We have an outstanding PTA at Brumby and they have worked very hard to make parents feel welcome and included in all of the decisions that impact our school,” said Ms. Richie. “This recognition really affirms the strong partnership between our school and the community.”
The National PTA often cites the strong correlation between schools with engaged, involved families, and student success.
