Alexander Wilson Elementary has big plans this year to celebrate the school’s 100th Anniversary.
“Alexander Wilson, one of the original two high schools in ABSS, is celebrating its 100th year this year! We are excited to celebrate our history with our current students and the decades that have shaped this AWEsome school. We are also looking forward to a big celebration in the spring,” said Ashley Westmoreland, Principal.
A festival type event is being planned for Saturday, May 6, 2023 that includes family fun and games on the school grounds, an art exhibit, and student-led tours that include a showcase of memorabilia throughout the school’s 100 year history. Additionally, a special alumni breakfast is being planned for all alumni.
The school is actively seeking corporate and alumni sponsors to help with the event and looking for additional memorabilia that people may have to donate to the school.
A special email address has been established to field questions and for those interested in sponsoring the festivities. The email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
The school will also be celebrating throughout the year with its current students. Teachers are planning dress up days to mark the various decades and expose students to books, music, and art over the past 100 years.
