In September, the Saint Dominic School’s Principal, Mrs. Patricia Tiezzi receives the news that her school has won the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award. Now is the time that she and Mrs. Noreen Adams, Literacy Specialist travels to Washington D.C. to attend the 30th Anniversary of the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award Ceremony and receives the St. Dominic School’s National Blue Ribbon Award for Academic Excellence. 

On Monday, Nov. 12, Mrs. Patricia Tiezzi and Mrs. Noreen Adams were proud recipients of this Award.

“My experience was awesome. We met people from both public schools and private schools from across the country. We were able to network and share concerns and suggestions about the state of education in the United States,” Tiezzi said. “We heard from both the 2011 National Principal and Teacher of the Year.  They were enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate about children and the need for all educators to do the same.”

“We all shared in this  tremendous honor together and represented our Archdiocese with enthusiasm, pride and a sense of accomplishment.  When I was hired at Saint Dominic School the search committee wanted the school to be one of the best in the Archdiocese, six years later it is. Goal accomplished,” she stated.

Congratulations St Dominic School! Long before the Blue Ribbon Award you were able to exceed in customer satisfaction. My wife and I are firm in our belief that St Dominic School provided the best and most comprehensive education for our children. From the moment we arrived we saw the power of what dedicated teachers, committed families and a supportive parish can achieve in the education, moral and social development of children. Additionally a lot of lasing bonds and friendships developed among the parents as we rallied around our children supporting them on their journey. It was a rewarding expierence. Keep up the excellent work.
