Pullman Elementary School's achievement gains celebrated


Joining an exclusive group, Pullman Elementary School was recently designated a "celebration school."

The honor, from the Minnesota Department of Education, recognizes Pullman for growth its students made on Minnesota Comprehensive Assessment tests given last spring.

Pullman teachers and support staff members are very proud of how they sparked student achievement, but it was only a pause, according to Principal Ed Ross, before returning to the focus of keeping up the effort.
