Washington Elementary School principal Chad Lueck, left, and sixth-grade teacher Jan Beauchman hold a plaque from the Department of Education that they received in Washington, D.C. earlier this month. The plaque recognizes Washington Elementary receiving the department's most prestigious honor — the Blue Ribbon School award.

The school will receive another plaque from the State of North Dakota during a ceremony with state officials Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m. at the school's gymnasium.

The public is encouraged to attend the event.
