Students at P.S. 46 were blue, but for good reason, on Friday.

At an early-morning ceremony on Jan. 17 students, teachers, parents and elected officials celebrated P.S. 46’s designation as a Blue Ribbon School.

The Oakland Gardens school was one of 286 in the nation honored by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) with the Blue Ribbon Award in 2013. This award recognizes schools where students are performing at very high academic levels.

“P.S. 46 is a very special place” said Councilmember Mark Weprin.

The ceremony was filled with dancing, singing, and even a performance by the school’s drama club titled, “The search for the National Blue Ribbon Award.”

“This award adds a dimension to us,” said Marsha Goldberg, principal. “We are a microcosm of what society should be. I feel like I’m on top of the world.”

City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who attended the event and spoke to the crowd, said “this award shows the potential for students in the entire city.”

Goldberg remained humble even when giving her final remarks on receiving such a prestigious award.

“I believe we can do better, I believe we will do better, and I truly believe that our best days are yet to come,” she said.
