Congratulations to Saint Clement School!
Saint Clement School Named 2020 National Blue Ribbon Schools Awardee for first time in school history!
Dear Saint Clement Parish Community,
It is with enormous pride that I share some exciting news! Saint Clement School has been recognized by the US Department of Education to receive the 2020 distinction of National Blue Ribbon School for the first time in school history. We are one of fifty non-public schools in the US to win this award, and one of 367 total recipients nationally this year. This award is a true testament to the high-quality and rigorous education that Saint Clement School provides.
Our faculty and staff work tirelessly to ensure our children receive the best education regardless of what is happening in our world. I am beyond grateful to our hard-working staff for their exceptional work ethic, caring, dedication, and the sharing of their many talents. We are truly blessed.
Many thanks to the committee members who worked on the application last year, including Donna Terrasi, Maren Neuberger, Amanda Stahlschmidt, Caitlin Mundt, Elizabeth Pesavento, Lisa Herold, Fran Kucich, Annie Matchinga, Noreen Valle, and myself. Additional thanks go to present and former School Advisory Board members, Mary Newburn, Steve Luthman, and Mike Jakola, who reviewed our application before submitting it.
Finally, I am honored to give this wonderful news to our new pastor, Father Peter, on his installation weekend. We, at the school, could not think of a better way to welcome him to our very special community.
Mrs. Hanson, Principal of Saint Clement School
“We know that every great accomplishment comes as a result of dedicated work and thoughtful leadership. Join me in congratulating our parish school which is the 2020 recipient of National Blue Ribbon Award! Thank you to our Principal Mari Jo Hanson, our faculty and school board for their hard work leading us to this national recognition!”
