The call is going out to all former and current students, staff and parents of École Davis Road Elementary.

Davis Road School turns 50 in 2013, and the school community is in the early stages of planning a celebration.

It’s time to look back on the good old days and to reflect on what the future will bring for the school and the surrounding community. Former students, teachers, staff and community members are encouraged to contact the school office at 250-245-7187 or drop by with their memorabilia, stories and ideas for a celebration.

“We are intending to hold an event sometime in 2013 and are looking to alumni to bring souvenirs and photos, volunteer or help organize,” states a press release from the school’s Parent Advisory Council. “The date, theme and format of the event have not been set. It could be reunion style, a community event, a tea, a walk down a hallway full of photos — anything goes.”

The school is currently looking for people who are interested in being involved in the 50th anniversary celebrations, whether it’s organizing before or during the event, or sharing stories, pictures or other memorabilia from the past.

Contact the École Davis Road office if you are interested in getting involved or e-mail principal Doug English at denglish@sd68.bc.ca.
