Nov. 20, the students and staff at Newington Elementary School celebrated the Excellent school report card earned by the school for the fifth consecutive year. The results of the school’s 2013 PASS scores, indicate that Newington is a school of excellence. During the celebration Principal Cammy Groome shared with the student body and parents gathered in the media center that 265 of the school’s third through fifth graders scored exemplary in one or more areas on last year’s assessment and 114 scored exemplary in all areas tested.

In addition, 20 students were recognized as the school’s Royal Court, Kings, Queens, Princes and Princesses of PASS, for having scored either the highest score in an area of the test or for scoring perfect scores. Former fifth graders were invited back to the school to participate in the celebration and to receive Royal recognition along with the current fourth and fifth graders being honored. Following the introduction of the Royal Court, a school parade of all students with exemplary scores was held while classrooms lined the hallways to dance and high-five the Excellent Leaders.

In addition, classroom lessons and activities for the day were centered around the theme of excellence.
