Just days after Patricia Martin, principal of St. Gabriel School, returned from Washington, D.C., with the plaque signifying the school’s Blue Ribbon status, it was party time at the school. Archdiocesan officials, state and local representatives and community supporters gathered at the school on Nov. 21 to bestow accolades on the faculty and students, whose test scores made St. Gabriel eligible for the prestigious award. St. Gabriel students in grades three through seven scored in the 90th percentile or better on a nationally recognized standardized test. Photos by Lenora Sumsky
