COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.– Jostens has announced that Colorado Spring’s District 49 Horizon Middle School has been named a Renaissance School of Distinction.
The award was created by the organization to honor schools that are making a positive impact on their school climate and culture through executing their “Renaissance formula” of RESPECT + RECOGNIZE + REWARD + REINFORCE + RELATIONSHIPS = RESULTS.
Sara Sausker, Director of Jostens Renaissance Education, said, “The passion and dedication of the educators and student leaders at these schools are a driving force in building a culture of achievement, pride, and belonging. Each of these schools has put the Renaissance formula into action in order to drive measurable results in academic performance and student engagement and also to create an environment where every student belongs, not just attends.”
