Greetings,

I am humbled to announce that Washington Elementary has been designated as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2017 by the U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Schools recognized as National Blue Ribbon Schools are “exemplary high performing schools.” The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high schools where students achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing achievement gaps. The award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content.

Washington Elementary is one of 342 schools nation-wide, and one of 8 schools in the state of Minnesota, that will be recognized by the U.S. Department of Education in a ceremony on Nov. 6th and 7th  in Washington, D.C.

None of this would be possible without exceptional students, highly talented staff, and wonderfully engaged families at Washington Elementary. Congratulations to Principal Chad Schroeder and our entire Washington Elementary community. I look forward to celebrating with our students and staff very soon!

 

Michael Muñoz
Superintendent
