Russell Elementary Nominated as a National Blue Ribbon School
Congrats go out to Russell Elementary School for being one of two schools in Idaho to be nominated by the Idaho State Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School. To put it in perspective, this recognition is like being nominated for an Oscar. Just as a nominee, Russell was awarded $30,000 to be used for their school. Now their nomination will move forward to the national level. Great Job Mr. Allen, and his entire staff for a job well done.
