Forest Named Blue Ribbon School 028 (Small)

WEST HAVEN, Dec. 14, 2018 — Forest Elementary School Principal Thomas J. Hunt on Friday afternoon, Dec. 14, receives a citation from Mayor Nancy R. Rossi recognizing Forest as a National Blue Ribbon School.

Before presenting Hunt with the citation during a celebration in the school gym, Rossi congratulated and praised the assembly of students, teachers, faculty and staff for their remarkable achievement and hard work.

“Your determination, character and commitment to excellence have placed Forest among the finest elementary schools in the United States,” said Rossi, reading the citation. “The West Haven Public School District continues to lead because we have great teachers and great students.”

The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program is an annual award bestowed by the U.S. Education Department on schools nationwide for high academic performance or greatest progress in achievement gap closure among subgroups.

Hunt also received a General Assembly citation marking the occasion from state Reps. Michael A. DiMassa, D-West Haven, Charles J. Ferraro, R-West Haven, and Dorinda Borer, D-West Haven, on behalf of the delegation.

The ceremony was also attended by Board of Education members Secretary-Treasurer Susan Walker, Patricia B. Libero and Rosa Richardson; Superintendent of Schools Neil C. Cavallaro and Assistant Superintendent Anne P. Druzolowski; City Council Minority Leader Richard DePalma, R-at large, and Councilman Peter V. Massaro, D-6; and mayoral Executive Assistant Lou Esposito.
