DISTRICT #321 STRIVES FOR ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE: 

excellenceaward 2016 GOLDEN APPLE RECIPIENT - LAURA WANKE
Rewarding Excellence in Teaching & Leadership - We are proud to present our very own “Golden Apple” winner, Mrs. Laura Wanke ... It was an exciting morning Thursday, March 10, 2016, as The Golden Apple Award Committee marched upstairs followed by family, administrators, BOE members, co-workers, and the RRStar & WREX TV crew to Mrs. Wanke’s 2nd grade classroom to present her with “A Golden Apple”. Mrs. Wanke was surprised yet humble as she accepted the well-deserved symbol of her excellence and dedication to teaching and leadership. Once she recovered from the shock, she exclaimed to her wonderful whale students, “You did it!” Mrs. Wanke’s students quietly sat and worked on a cloud/rainbow project during the lively recognition. Congratulations Mrs. Wanke for making her wish come true by investing the time and energy that is required to accomplish the achievement of becoming a Golden Apple Recipient.

excellenceaward 2015 BLUE RIBBON AWARD - PECATONICA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Congratulations to the amazing teachers and staff at Pecatonica Elementary School, 2015 Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon School!  In Illinois, the only way a school can be nominated for this prestigious honor is through special recognition from the Illinois State Board of Education. They recognize schools for one of two awards, Exemplary High Performing School or Exemplary Achievement Gap Closing School. The final selection is made after an application process, in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education.  The Blue Ribbon Award, which began in 1982, has only ever recognized two Winnebago County schools, one other elementary school and a private high school. The rest of the awards have been throughout other parts of the state. This year 15 schools were named Exemplary High Performing National Blue Ribbon Schools in Illinois.  Pecatonica Elementary School is one of only 332 schools nationally to receive this award!!!
