  (Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania asked and was given permission to 
address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend his remarks.)
  Mr. THOMPSON of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to extend my 
congratulations as DuBois Area Middle School earns redesignation status 
as a Pennsylvania ``School to Watch.'' This is quite an achievement, 
and I highly commend the administrators, teachers, and students for 
their efforts. It is my understanding that DuBois Area Middle School is 
one of only three middle schools that has been redesignated a second 
time, after originally earning this designation in 2007 and again in 
  These selections by State educational leaders exemplify DuBois Area 
Middle School's outstanding responsiveness to the needs and interests 
of its students in helping them achieve their greatest potential.
  Furthermore, by working together to improve curriculum and foster 
continuous academic growth, DuBois Area Middle School leadership has 
gone the extra mile to ensure success. The example your success has set 
for other schools is an excellent one, and I hope it will be shared 
  Also, I encourage all people, students and adults, to continue to 
learn as it is probably the single most significant ingredient in 
leading a successful and fulfilling life.
