St. Mary School Chardon has been recognizes as a Cleveland Clinic Banner School for 2016-17. This award recognizes the school’s noteworthy success in leveraging community resources to advance student learning. It is a distinction earned by fewer than 30% of the 159 schools in four states that participated in Civic Education programming this year. Although much smaller in size than most schools in the program, St. Mary continues to come out on top. The school earned its distinction by continually participating in Cleveland Clinic distance learning programs and bringing cutting edge education to its students.
The Cleveland Clinic Civic Education Department offers programs designed to promote health and wellness, academic achievement, and career preparedness for students in grades K through 12. Bryan Pflaum of Cleveland Clinic said, “It takes ambitious teachers and an encouraging administrator, to deliver these opportunities to students. The effort Amber Yeager invested in implementing the Adventures in Health Science and Medicine program and the support you (Mary Petelin) provided in the process demonstrate an exceptional commitment to student enrichment and distinguish St. Mary School as a 2016-2017 Cleveland Clinic Banner School.”
St. Mary is very thankful to have such wonderful partners in education and look forward to continued collaboration in the years ahead.
