That’s the time and date set for current and former Wilchester Wildcats, community members, former school staff and students to stop by the campus to share stories, meet old friends, learn what is currently happening at the recently rebuilt elementary school, and walk down memory lane.
The school, located at 13618 St. Mary’s Lane, was one of 13 district elementary schools rebuilt under the 2007 Bond Plan. This striking, new two-story campus opened for prekindergarten to fifth-grade students in August 2011. The new school includes 35 regular classrooms with additional resource, special education and fine arts classrooms. High quality materials and finishes were chosen with community input.
Light cake and punch will be served Jan. 27 during the 50th anniversary celebration. Visitors will reminisce about the school and special events from the 1960s through 2016. Wilchester’s school doors opened in 1966. Decorations and music for the special event will reflect all five decades.
At 5 p.m. on Jan. 27, the 50th anniversary party will transition into a short ceremony as well as an expected dedication of a PTA gift to the school. Former and current school principals, along with Board of Trustees and other officials, will speak.
Anne Ross, Sean and Lucy Roche gather at Wilchester Elementary's Dads and Donuts.
Wilchester Elementary – past and present – hopes to see everyone there so save the date!
