WEST NEW YORK - An elementary school in West New York now bears the name of one of New Jersey's most prominent citizens.

P.S. 3 was renamed Robert Menendez Elementary School after the U.S. senator.

The senator was joined by local officials and Rep. Albio Sires for the unveiling.

"It's really about the hopes and dreams and aspirations of young people who are not only going to realize their dreams, but also help America realize its potential," says Menendez. "And so I'm thrilled to have this honor."

Rep. Sires also has an elementary school named after him in West New York.
