We wanted to congratulate all three Mt. Vernon elementary schools for being named a 2019-2020 Project Lead the Way Distinguished School. This recognition means they are providing broad access to transformative learning opportunities for students through Project Lead the Way Launch. Specifically, all three elementary schools “are empowering students to thrive in an evolving world and achieving exemplary results from their Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Launch programs.”
