Bayside’s P.S. 46 will hold a week-long celebration beginning on Monday for having received the prestigious Blue Ribbon award from the U.S. Department of Education.

The school, located at 64-25 218th St., was recognized in Septemberas a Blue Ribbon school for its high level of academic achievement and progress.

The school has dedicated next week as “P.S. 46 Blue out Week,” which will include educational activities for its students as well as a ceremony on Jan. 17 with local elected officials.

"We are extremely proud of the recognition that our school has received," Principal Marsha Goldberg. "The 'P.S. 46 Blue Out Week' is a celebration of our students' outstanding achievements and a tribute to the dedication and hard work of our extraordinary staff and wonderful community."

Goldberg traveled to Washington D.C. last fall to receive the award.

Little Neck’s P.S. 221, located at 57-40 Marathon Parkway, was also named as a 2013 Blue Ribbon school.

And, in November 2012, Oakland Gardens’ P.S. 203 received the honor. Students from that school put on an elaborate performance for a large crowd of parents, faculty and elected officials.

I am very proud of the accomplishment of PS 46 Queens being named as a Blue Ribbon school award winner. I graduated from PS 46 in the 1960's and had a remarkable teacher who has had a profound effect on my life until this day which I will never forget. I often went back to visit her for many years.

P.S.46...I graduated there in 1956. It was always a great school. I'm glad to see it still is.
