A True Blue Ribbon Day  Students at James Walker Elementary received a welcome surprise Thursday when it was unveiled their school was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. Only eight schools in the state of Missouri are chosen to apply for Blue Ribbon status and JWE marks the fifth Blue Springs School District school to receive this prestigious honor in the last four years.
  William Bryant Elementary was honored in 2018, Voy Spears Jr. Elementary in 2017 and the BSSD had two recipients in 2016 – Lucy Franklin Elementary and William Yates Elementary.
  To celebrate, JWE displayed a banner and balloons and after each lunch shift students visited the district food truck, The Dish, to enjoy an ice cream cup with blue and gold sprinkles.
