…for a local public service announcement!
As some of you may know, I work for the Arvon Township School. I work three mornings a week (one of my part-time jobs) as the Business Manager.
Our little school is a K-6 elementary school. In the 20+ years I’ve worked here, we’ve had between four and forty students. Both of our kids attended through sixth grade and have lots of fond memories of days in this two-room schoolhouse.
(It’s not technically a two room school. There are two classrooms downstairs…but upstairs we feature a tiny gym and library, along with a storage room and my office. In the basement students eat lunch in a small cafeteria.)
This year–2010–is the school’s 100th year celebration. Yep, our centennial. Hundreds of youth (dare I say more than a thousand? No time to research this!) have attended the Arvon Township School since those early years. Up until the 1940’s it was also a high school.
On July 11, 2010, all former students, teachers and staff are invited to attend our Centennial Celebration. Stop by from 2-5 p.m. to wander through the old school, remember days gone by, have a cup of coffee and some snacks.
It was the school board who nudged me toward this Public Service Announcement. They said, “Hey, we know you have a blog and wouldn’t it be great to perhaps locate some former students on the worldwide web?”
Thus: If any former Arvon Township School folks are reading this blog (or stumbling upon it after a search engine spree): Please visit our school website and send us an email with your current address. We’ll send you a flyer and warmly invite you to visit your former school!
We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog…
