St. Mary School in Chardon was named a Cleveland Clinic Banner School for 2016-17. The award recognizes St. Mary’s success in leveraging community resources to advance student learning. Fewer than 30 percent of the 159 schools in four states that participated in civic education programming this year earned the distinction.
Although smaller in size than most schools in the program, St. Mary earned the 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-12.
“It takes ambitious teachers and an encouraging administrator to deliver these opportunities to students,” said Bryan Pflaum of the Cleveland Clinic. “The effort Amber Yeager invested in implementing the Adventures in Health Science and Medicine program and the support Principal 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,” he added.
