Blue Ribbon For Munsey Park


At the Nov. 6 meeting, the Manhasset Board of Education recognized Munsey Park School students and staff for receiving the 2014 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence Award.   
The process for this honor started when the State of New York Education offices sent an email to Dr. Jean Kendall, Principal of Munsey Park School, inviting the School to apply for this prestigious award.  Dr. Kendall shared the invitation with Superintendent Charles Cardillo, who was in full support, and began to get input to complete the 35 page application.
On Sept. 30 Arne Duncan, Secretary of Education in Washington D.C., announced  Munsey Park School as one of 337 schools recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2014 based on overall academic excellence or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. Munsey Park was awarded under the “overall academic excellence” category.
On Nov. 10 to 11, Dr. Kendall, along with teacher Kim Viscovich, and central office administrator Dr. Charles Leone, represented Munsey Park School in Washington D.C. at the 2014 National Blue Ribbon Schools Award Ceremony.
The student assembly was held on Nov. 14, where Dr. Kendall presented the flag and plaque to the students and faculty/staff.
