Fayette Middle students celebrate their national success
They are part of something incredible and they want everyone to know it.
Over 700 students at Fayette Middle showed their school spirit by wearing white T-shirts with the words “I’m Part of Something INCREDIBLE!” on the front, and the school’s name along with “National Title I Distinguished School” printed on the back.
The students poured into Fayette Middle’s gym for a school-wide portrait highlighting their achievement. The school found out earlier this year that it was one of two in Georgia and one of only 71 in the nation selected as a 2011 National Title I Distinguished School.
Fayette Middle received the award for having exceptional student performance overall by exceeding its Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) every year since the assessment was implemented under the No Child Left Behind Act.
The school purchased the T-shirts for all of the students through various fundraisers and contributions from donors.
