Saturday, May 30, 2015, will be a big day for our community. Students, teachers, parents, and community members will be saying goodbye to a school building that will soon be put to rest.
The public is invited for the ceremonial closing of Lamar Elementary. This will be a time of reflection and remembrance with a “walk down memory lane” that will celebrate 61 years of learning and teaching. This building was the vision of our close-knit community in 1954 and has nobly served the children, parents, and community of Mineral Wells for more than six decades. The education received within its hallowed halls has helped shape the lives of many generations of Mineral Wells Rams.
This aged building is so much more than bricks, mortar, and steel. It holds within its structure memories of the thousands of students who attended Lamar Elementary. Children have been educated in this facility where their parents and grandparents received their education. Lamar was instrumental in many life-long friendships that were started within this building. It has been a living part of our community and has provided many wonderful experiences over the years.
So how will we say goodbye to a building that is an old friend? Lamar Elementary is planning a community celebration that will include a historical account of the building, self-guided tours, and a school memorabilia exhibition. Light refreshments will be served to those in attendance.
We invite current and former students and faculty to join us as we bid a final farewell to this well-worn, much-loved institution. Even when the building is gone, its significant legacy will live on for many years to come. Lamar Elementary has served us well in all its years; please join us on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at 2:00 pm, as it will be “honored” for all its years of faithful service.
Please take a few minutes to visit and "Like" our Farewell to Lamar Elementary Facebook page. We are in search of historic photographs, stories, and other school memorabilia for this special event. If you have any questions about the event, please contact the school office at (940) 325-5303 or email Leslee Barham email@example.com.
