Westside School was announced as a 2022 National Blue Ribbon School award winner. This honor is bestowed upon schools considered "Exemplary High Performing" by national standards. Westside was 1 of 5 schools from Nebraska that received this award. Only 297 schools in the nation were selected to receive this award. Our Principal Tracy Lichty said. "Westside Elementary is an amazing place to be. I can't say enough about our tremendous, hardworking staff. I am extremely proud of them, and they deserve full credit for this honor. We are also incredibly blessed to have families that are very supportive of our staff, students, and overall school community."
Mr. Lichty, Jill Blaylock, and Amber Boubin were honored to travel to Washington D.C. to receive the award. They enjoyed their trip but we are very glad to welcome them back at school.
