Woolmarket Elementary Blue Ribbon Celebration

Woolmarket Elementary Hosts National Blue Ribbon Celebration

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (November 19, 2021) – Woolmarket Elementary was decked out in blue today as the school hosted a special ceremony to celebrate its 2021 National Blue Ribbon Award. Woolmarket Elementary received this prestigious recognition based on the school’s progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.

Administrators and teachers expressed their Rams pride and thanked everyone who played a role in helping WES achieve this national honor! This has truly been a community effort and the ongoing support has made today’s celebration possible.

Woolmarket Elementary Principal Kevin Roberts posted this message to express his gratitude to the community:

“I want to thank the Woolmarket Community for always supporting Woolmarket Elementary. Your support makes possible days like today. Only 4 schools in the State of Mississippi earned National Blue Ribbon recognition this year. There were only 325 schools in the United States that did so.

Woolmarket Elementary has been serving this community since 1910 when the Coalville, King, and Oakhead communities combined their one room school houses on a 10 acres, donated piece of land. In that time it has been the Woolmarket Vocational School and Woolmarket High School. Students have gone on to great careers. Others have gone to defend the nation in places like Belgium and Okinawa and not returned.

We were honored to have many former teachers and administrators on campus today to celebrate with us. We made sure our current students understand that the tradition of success laid by those individuals, and many of you, is also a high standard that we will live up to. If you would like to see the ceremony you can watch it on the WES Facebook page or simply follow the link on this post. We look forward to being able to return to a time when the campus is a little more open. Until then we will continue to do our best to be as open as possible.

Thank you for letting us serve your community. Thank you for your continued support of THE Woolmarket Elementary School.

It's a Great Day to be a Ram!”
