The Salt Brook Elementary School, named for the Salt Brook that winds through New Providence, was recently named one of forty-eight “National Schools of Character” for 2011. Apparently there are some criteria for developing excellent character at elementary schools, and Salt Brook met them.
Interestingly, of those forty-eight schools all over the entire country, 15 of them are in Missouri, eight of them are in New Jersey, and the other 25 are spread out around the other 48 states. Don’t get me wrong, I love my state, but I do suspect not everyone submitted an application.
Aaaaaanyway, congratulations to Salt Brook School! Rock on, Educational System. Rock on.
