There are over 1300 public schools in the State of Oregon. And here in Central Oregon, one school, M.A. Lynch Elementary in Redmond, is one of only seven schools to be selected for this year's Champion Schools Award. Principal Desiree Margo says the staff and students have worked very hard to achieve this award. "Well, it's really about closing the achievement gap. We know that every year, with our State testing and our annual yearly progress, we're looking at all students being successful. But historically, certain groups have not been successful. Our special education students and our English Language Learner or ELL students really haven't made the same success. And so this award is all about closing that achievement gap, really making a difference for all kids and all kids being successful. And so that's what this award is about and that's what M.A. Lynch has done and we're just thrilled to be awarded this." Margo says they started programs at the school that involve students and parents beyond the regular school hours and have encouraged much more involvement in the whole child experience. She says she shared the news with the staff and student body and all are very proud. They will receive a $3000 award as well as a trophy and media recognition.
