Celebrating our School of the Year

We love this time of year! It’s always fun because we get to celebrate our Partners In Education School of the Year. This year’s recipient is Our Lady of the Lake School in Euclid.

Our Lady of the Lake was selected in a random drawing of schools participating in the Partners in Education program during the 2016-2017 school year. All of the schools in the drawing had a student or teacher that was nominated for Academic All Star or Teacher of the Month during. Our Lady of the Lake student Alaya McMillian was nominated by her teacher after the second grader organized a toy drive to benefit children in need.

 

 

Our Lady of the Lake received a $500 Staples gift card, merchandise from Ohio Lottery partners to be used for fundraising efforts for the school and a School of the Year trophy. Last week we treated the schools more than 300 K through 8th grade students to a one of a kind pep rally, and we brought a few friends along from our Ohio Lottery partners to share in the fun.

Congratulations to the students and staff at Our Lady of the Lake!
