By River Forest School District 90

Have you noticed the trees adorned with blue ribbons in River Forest? The blue ribbons symbolize the 2015 National Blue Ribbon Award that has been bestowed by the Department of Education on Lincoln Elementary School.

Along with the blue ribbons, the River Forest community is invited to help commemorate Lincoln School's special recognition. A community celebration will be held on Thursday, October 22 at 5 p.m. at Lincoln School in the Franklin Playground. In case of inclement weather, the celebration will take place inside of the School.

The program will focus on celebrating this prestigious award. There will be music, student singing, brief remarks, and cookies and hot chocolate. This 2015 National Blue Ribbon Award for Lincoln also affirms the commitment to educational excellence that is the hallmark of the River Forest community.
