Lt. Gov. Matt Denn visited Rehoboth Elementary School April 2 to celebrate the school’s second recognition as a School of Continued Excellence. Denn, Cape Henlopen School Superintendent Robert Fulton and Sen. Ernie Lopez, R-Lewes, shook hands with teachers and students as Denn presented teachers with an etched crystal and students with a medal.
After the ceremony Denn visited the science, technology, arts and mathematics (STEAM) class to see the results of the Accelerated Academic Grant program which allows school districts to design programs targeted at students who are ahead of grade level in reading, writing, math or science.
Shown accepting a crystal from Denn with the etching “Rehoboth Elementary, DOE School of Continued Excellence 2013” is fourth grade teacher Donald Ott.
