Local schools win recognition awards

The state is honoring nearly 175 schools in Wisconsin for their work with low-income students.

Eight in the area are considered Schools of Recognition.

Coolidge elementary in Neenah, and Gegan elementary in Menasha won High-Progress School awards.

Gegan principal Liz LaNou says the staff deserves a lot of credit, because they've been working very hard on raising achievement, and putting in long hours.

Coolidge principal April Keepers says they've focused on student growth, and a former teacher made a difference by creating a volunteer program to help children with their reading.

Wrightstown middle school was named a High-Achieving School.

There were five local Beating the Odds Schools -- Columbus and Horizons elementaries in Appleton, and Roosevelt, Washington, and Webster Stanley elementaries in Oshkosh.
