Farewell Open Houses at Closing Schools

The District has announced four Community Farewell Open House dates for each of the elementary schools that are closing at the end of the 2018-2019 school year.

This will be an opportunity for community members, alumni, former staff members or anyone with a connection to these buildings to do a final walk-through of the building, socialize with old friends, celebrate the building’s history and say a proper goodbye to the school.

Each of these open house dates will feature a brief presentation about the history of the building, speakers, refreshments, a tour of the building and an opportunity to view old memorabilia, historical pictures and more.

These four buildings – which were all constructed in the 1920s and 1930s - are a rich part of our community’s history and we look forward to celebrating all the great memories you may have had with these buildings.

The dates for the Community Farewell Open Houses are below. Each open house will be from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Tuesday, April 23, 2019: Hadden Elementary
Wednesday, April 24, 2019: Leroy Elementary
Thursday, April 25, 2019: Madison Avenue Elementary
Wednesday, May 1, 2019: Hale Road Elementary  

A Facebook event page (Hadden, Leroy, Madison Avenue, Hale) has been created for each Open House on the District’s Facebook page. We encourage you to join and share the page with others. Each page has a discussion thread where community members can share pictures, memorabilia and memories of the school. 

* Each of these buildings will schedule two additional casual walk-through open houses following the dates above for those who cannot make the Community Farewell Open House date. Those dates will be announced at a later time.
