Happy 50th Birthday, Rose Hill Elementary

To commemorate its 50th birthday, Rose Hill Elementary will be celebrating "Foundations in the past - Building for the Future" on Jan. 27.

An afternoon celebration assembly will feature our second and third grade students who will be dancing and singing songs from the '50s through the new millennium.

In the evening, the celebration will continue with an open house from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for former staff, students, present staff, parents, and community members to reminisce about the past and "step into the future" by viewing a model of our new school.

The school's Web site, www. lwsd.org/rosehill, will have more information regarding the celebration along with a link to Amazon.com's wish list to purchase a birthday book for Rose Hill Elementary's new library.

The Web site will also feature a link for a place to write memories or send old pictures which will be compiled into a memory book.

PTSA is sponsoring a t-shirt/sweatshirt sale featuring the very first raccoon mascot drawing by Michelle Clark.

To purchase a t-shirt/sweatshirt or for more information regarding the celebration, please call the school office at 822-9578.

NOTE: Construction on the $13 million new school will begin in the spring. The 53,000-square-foot building will be open for the 2006 school year and will have room for 450 students and 35 staff. It will feature 19 classrooms, including a music room and a partitioned common area. Jan Blaud has been the school's office manager for 14 years.[[In-content Ad]]
