Congratulations are in order!

To Keith's school! His elementary school was designated a Blue Ribbon School by the US Department of Education. Way to go Chadds Ford Elementary!!! What IS a Blue Ribbon School, you ask? Well, I didn't know either, so I hit up my trusty friend, google. And here is what I found, from the Department of Education's website:
The No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are either academically superior or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement to high levels. In addition to being honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC, where each school receives a plaque and flag signifying their status, these schools serve as models for other schools throughout the nation.

I must say, I'm impressed.
