Germantown ES had a very special visit from Ms. Frances Hopkins, the US Department of Education’s Director of the President's Education Awards Program (PEAP).  Ms. Hopkins was the adult guest speaker for our fifth grade promotion and presented the Presidential Awards to some of our deserving fifth grade students on Thursday, June 12th.  The PEAP honors student achievement and hard work. Since 1983, the program has provided individual recognition from the President and the U.S. Secretary of Education to those students whose outstanding efforts have enabled them to meet challenging standards of excellence. We are honored to be the first school that Ms. Hopkins has visited to present these awards directly to students!
