Elementary South Celebrates Its National Blue Ribbon Recognition with a Breakfast

Teachers, board members and administrators came together Friday morning for a breakfast to celebrate Elementary South’s designation as a 2019 National Blue Ribbon School. Elementary South is among 25 schools in Illinois and 362 schools nationwide to receive this recognition from the U.S. Department of Education. The award is the highest honor an American school can receive. In mid-November, awardees will be recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education in Washington, D.C.
