Students celebrate at two Buffalo Grove Blue Ribbon schools
Students, teachers and staff at two Buffalo Grove schools in Aptakisic-Tripp Elementary District 102 celebrated being named among the best in the nation.
Earl Pritchett Elementary School and Tripp Elementary School hosted schoolwide assemblies this week to celebrate being named National Blue Ribbon School award winners by the U.S. Department of Education in September. They are among 21 Illinois elementary, middle, and high schools on the list.
At Pritchett school Tuesday, students gathered in the school gymnasium to sing the school song and watch a closed circuit feed of the student council raising a National Blue Ribbon flag outside.
On Monday, students at Tripp waved blue pompons and listened to a performance by the Aptakisic Junior High School band.
