Proud of our Ramsey students

During the week of May 9-12, the Chippewa County Historical Society hosted our annual Heritage Week, which began in 1977.

During this four day period, 1,433 school children and adults attended this popular annual event, with approximately 96 Ramsey Elementary School children and adults in attendance.

The Montevideo community can be very proud of our youth. The children who joined us for Heritage Week were polite and considerate to the other students and adults in attendance, attentive to the instructors and “village residents” and they were well prepared for their visit to Historic Chippewa City.

Ramsey Elementary School teachers have done a wonderful job in teaching our children about their heritage. Our school and community can be proud of our students and our teachers.
