State Superintendent Tony Evers praised Northern Lights Elementary School, among 178 schools in the state, that received Wisconsin Title I School of Recognition honors for 2016-17 during a special May 1 ceremony at the State Capitol in Madison.

"Our Schools of Recognition are staffed by dedicated educators," Evers said. "Their success is something to celebrate; it serves as an example of the importance of schools, families and communities working together to ensure that every child graduates ready for college and careers."

The state superintendent recognized 21 high-achieving schools and 21 high-progress schools as identified by results from 2015-16 statewide assessments; nine schools earned both high-achieving and high-progress honors. Four schools earned the award for a 10th consecutive year, while nine schools earned the award for a fifth consecutive year.

"Northern Lights Elementary was one of the nine schools statewide earning the award for the fifth consecutive year and Northern Lights has earned this award seven of the last nine years. It speaks to the hard work and dedication to excellence of the students, families and staff. Superior is very fortunate to have a school like Northern Lights in our community," said Northern Lights Principal Robyn Deshayes.
