Graveraet Elementary honored for being exemplary school

Graveraet Elementary

MARQUETTE, MI— A Marquette school has been named a 2021 National Blue Ribbon school.

Graveraet Elementary is the only Upper Peninsula school to make the list. The recognition is based on a school’s overall academic performance or progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.

Graveraet was honored for being an exemplary, high-performing school, utilizing Chromebook and iPad initiatives, positive behavior assemblies, healthy walk and bike to school days, and a check-in/check-out program for at-risk students, among other initiatives.

Officials say the coveted National Blue Ribbon Schools award affirms the hard work of educators, families and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging and engaging content.
