Hiawatha Hustle Award
The Hiawatha Economic Development Corporation had an on-line vote and Hiawatha Elementary was voted as the Best School/Daycare in Hiawatha. There were other educational institutions, such as Kirkwood Outreach, Nixon Elementary and numerous daycares, but you voted for us! Thank you!
As I reported to you last month, the state has released new information on school performance as required by a federal education law, called the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). You may remember Hiawatha was not identified as needing comprehensive or targeted support and improvement, which is the highest designation we could receive.
I am also proud to announce that Hiawatha Elementary received one of the best school performance scores in the Cedar Rapids Community School District, ranking in the top four!
Both of these recognitions are a testament to the hard work and strategic focus of our students, families and staff.
