Frederick’s own elementary
school was awarded this National Award as an exemplary high performing school. Out of the 342 schools who received this award, there were three in South Dakota all of which were elementary schools. Of these schools, Frederick was the smallest in student body to receive the award.
The school was nominated for this award by the state last January which was followed by a lengthy paperwork process. Mrs. Ringgenberg and Mrs. Tschosik traveled to Washington D.C. on November 6th and 7th to receive a plaque and flag for this great accomplishment. A local awards and celebration was held on November 16th at the school.
