FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Mt. Harmony Named Blue Ribbon School

Mt. Harmony Elementary is one of six schools selected as a Maryland Blue Ribbon School by the Maryland State Department of Education. The selection, announced today at the State House by Governor Larry Hogan, is based on rigorous state and national requirements for high achievement and significant improvement.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “We are proud of Mt. Harmony, our newest Blue Ribbon School. Congratulations to the hard working and caring staff, students and community.”

The Mt. Harmony Elementary School staff encourages all students to give their best, love to learn, and strive for excellence. The recent 5-star rating received by the school on Maryland’s 2018 School Report Card validates the efforts and dedication of the staff, students, families, and community members. The traditionally high-performing school focuses on rigorous academics, social emotional learning, community involvement, and fostering kindness among students.

The schools will be invited by the U.S. Department of Education to apply to be National Blue Ribbon Schools. With underwriting and gift sponsors, each school will receive a Maryland Blue Ribbon Flag, a monetary prize, $1000 in office supplies, interactive technology equipment, and a school Congratulations Party. A dinner in Annapolis will be held in honor of the winning schools on March 11, 2019. On that date, each Blue Ribbon School will be honored by the Maryland House of Delegates and the Senate.
