Lauderdale County, Miss. Northeast Lauderdale Middle School put on a big celebration for the release of its test scores Thursday night.
The school was once again recognized as a high-performing school. Prizes were given out to students for their accomplishments, and drawings were also held. Some of the parents were also recognized. These kinds of events help inspire the students to do even greater things.
"Our teachers always let us know when they need to boost the students up, but we're real happy with the effort we've been getting the last several years," said Northeast Middle School Principal Billy Burnham.
Lauderdale County Schools as a whole also received a high-performing grade from last year's test scores.
