The time has finally come to bid a fond farewell to the 73-yearold Wakefield Hilltop Elementary School, which will be moved to a brand new building on Riverside Drive. But before we bid adieu, there will be one last bash for generations of former students to celebrate.
A farewell picnic and BBQ will be held at the school on June 20 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. Former students and teachers are invited to wander the halls, drink from the water fountain, and point out their old cubby holes. Arrive before 4:30 p.m. and attend the school's very last assembly.
The wheels on the bus will go round... and round... and round.
That's because attendees will be able to reminisce by parking their car at Vorlage and taking a yellow school bus to the farewell party.
The BBQ will be by donation and attendees are encouraged to bring a salad or sweet to share. There will also be games for the kids.
