Blue Ribbon School!

Congratulations to the parents, students, faculty, staff, administration, and Board of Education for accomplishing what only a handful of schools have done; to achieve Blue Ribbon School status. The Blue Ribbon School program is a national program that recognizes schools that are performing in the top ten percentile academically and also recognizes schools where every child is successful no matter the background or disability.

Split Rock Elementary School, headed by Principal Theresa Williams, accomplished this task under her building leadership which helped to place the school in the top one-half of one percent of all schools in the United States.

Theresa and a teacher will head to Washington D.C. in November to receive the official award. They will also bring back the Blue Ribbon flag that will be flown each day at Split Rock Elementary School so that we will always remember how their efforts have made us one of the best school districts in the nation. Congratulations!
