"We've had a pretty exciting month," Principal Anne Marie Covey told the students at Washington Elementary as they gathered in the gymnasium after school last week.

After being named a Blue Ribbon School at the end of September, the school has been full of excitement and celebrations, which continued as Covey announced to the students they had a special visitor: Senator John Barrasso.

"It is wonderful to be here. Congratulations!" Barrasso told the gathered students, staff, and community members. "Over 500 schools in the state, and only two were selected as the best schools in Wyoming."
