Weatherstone Elementary School Named 2022 National Blue Ribbon School

To the Weatherstone Community,


We are excited to announce that Weatherstone Elementary School has been recognized today as a National Blue Ribbon School for 2022 by the U.S. Department of Education, marking it as a national model of effective school practices. 


Weatherstone is now the 12th WCPSS school to be named a Blue Ribbon School and one of 297 schools in the nation that are being recognized with this honor this year. This recognition is based on overall academic performance.


We want to thank and congratulate all of our students, staff, and families for the dedication and hard work over the past several years that has enabled us to achieve this honor. We are celebrating today by wearing blue, and we are planning several school celebrations to include families later this fall.
