(PARAMUS) - Assembly Democrats Connie Wagner and Tim Eustace will host a ceremony at Our Lady of Visitation Academy in Paramus to celebrate the school receiving the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award for 2012.
Wagner and Eustace will present the school with a joint resolution from the legislature honoring the students and their parents for the esteemed accomplishment. Also expected to attend are county and local officials.

Since 1982, the U.S. Department of Education's National Blue Ribbon Schools Program has honored America's most successful public and private elementary, middle, and high schools.
The event will take place in the school's gymnasium on Tuesday, Jan. 22, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm. Our Lady of Visitation Academy is located at 234 N. Fairview Ave, Paramus NJ.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
