The energy and excitement was evident at Tuesday’s special announcement ceremony at Westwood Elementary School where students, teachers, and community members alike were told that Westwood Elementary School had been chosen out of 1889 elementary schools to be among the top 3 elementary school finalists in TN for 2014 Score Prize. SCORE stands for State Collaborative on Reforming Education. The SCORE Prize “recognizes the schools and school districts in Tennessee that are leaders in student learning.” Westwood was chosen to be among the top 3 finalist based on their past 3 years of growth and performance. The winner will be announced in October in Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center during the 4th Annual Score Prize Event. More details and a Thunder TV News Video of the ceremony will be available in the next few days.
