McDonnell Receives National Imagine Learning Award

McDonnell Elementary has the highest elementary K-5 EL population in Huntsville City Schools. Imagine Learning is a digital program that is used by the school to assist with language acquisition.  McDonnell Elementary has been selected as a 2017–2018 Imagine Nation Beacon School. Eddie Dixon, our Imagine Learning area partnership manager, nominated our school for above-and-beyond enthusiasm and innovative use of Imagine Language & Literacy and Imagine Math.

We are excited to achieve this honor. To commemorate our accomplishment, McDonnell will receive a personalized banner recognizing our school as an Imagine Nation Beacon School, and we plan to display it proudly!

This achievement would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of many administrators, teachers, staff, students, and parents.  In the letter McDonnell received, Imagine Learning, stated, “we congratulate you on your high level of commitment, enthusiasm, and educational innovation. Likewise, we thank you for your dedication to giving students the very best in language, literacy, and math instruction. Please accept our sincere congratulations on achieving Beacon School status and on becoming a citizen of Imagine Nation.”

We look forward to an even better year next year! Thanks again to all our teachers, parents and students that made this accomplishment possible.
