Teachers and students holding a National Blue Ribbon School BannerGrandin Court Elementary is officially a Blue Ribbon School!  362 schools were recognized nationally, just seven in Virginia.  The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors K-12 schools that are either academically superior or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement.

Students and staff gathered to watch the announcement live online.  When Grandin Court appeared on the screen, the crowd exploded with applause.  Students were treated to blue snow cones and a blue ribbon.

Grandin Court Elementary will formally be recognized in Washington, D.C. in November.  Grandin Court Elementary joins Crystal Spring Elementary and William Fleming High School as the third National Blue Ribbon School from Roanoke.  Congratulations!
