The Park R-3 school district announced plans to celebrate district’s 125th anniversary this fall. Under the theme of “Celebrating 125 Years of Education” the celebration will be held the weekend of September 26 and 27th.
The event will be celebrated in conjunction with the district’s traditional homecoming parade in which alumni and past teachers will be part. A tail gate party for alums and the community will be held the evening of the 26th before the homecoming football game.A community/ alumni dance is also being planned.
The 125th anniversary coincides with the completion of the two year renovation of the district campus. On Saturday the 27th the community will be invited to tour the remodeled campus which includes the all three school buildings as well as the newly built observatory. Band and chorale concerts will be part of the celebration. Past graduates will be able view year books which go back to the 1920s. Part of the festivities will be rides in vintage cars and fire trucks.
High school students are preparing a composite year book and a DVD with photos and interview-s with local alums.
