Chanute Elementary Blue Ribbon Award
Chanute Elementary School was one of four schools in Kansas and 329 schools across the nation to be named today as a 2016 Blue Ribbon School by U.S. Secretary of Education John B. King.
CES was one of eight Kansas schools nominated for the award last spring by the Kansas Dept. of Education. Besides Chanute Elementary, Challenger Intermediate School at Goddard, McKinley Intermediate Elementary School at Abilene and Wheatridge Middle School at Gardner were also recipients of this prestigious award.
In his public announcement, Secretary King said that although all 329 schools recognized are different, from public and private, to magnet and charter schools, and they took different paths, they have one thing in common, “you work hard for your kids.”
“As one of these schools you are leading your students to the highest levels of achievement or making outstanding progress in closing the achievement gap,” he said.
These schools represent excellence, vision, implementation and results. Your journeys have required collaboration, intentional instruction, and strong relationships in school and with your community,” King said. “This honor recognizes your student’s accomplishments and the hard work and dedication that went into their success.”
