Daniels Run Elementary Named a National PTA School of Excellence
Daniels Run Elementary has been named a National PTA School of Excellence for the 2014-16 school years. National PTA’s School of Excellence is a program that supports and celebrates partnerships between PTAs and schools to improve the educational experience and school environment for every child. This year Daniels Run worked hard and made progress on increasing family engagement in all facets of our school community. As a National PTA School of Excellence, families feel welcomed and empowered to support student success, and the PTA is a key partner for continuous school improvement. This program provides guidance to assist schools in engaging families in the school decision-making process, and helps schools build inclusive policies related to education, health, safety or the arts.
