- October 15 - Celebrating Historic Schools - Troutdale Elementary, Fairview Elementary, and Wilkes Elementary. These schools are not up to seismic standards and will be torn down, then replaced with new structures.
The School Celebration Committee will be hosting three farewell open houses for the soon to be demolished Fairview, Troutdale, and Wilkes Elementary Schools. The events are open to the public, and we encourage all current and former students, teachers, staff, and their families to come say goodbye to these pillars of our community. Date and times are as follows:
Sunday, October 15 ~ Fairview Elementary: 10:00 – 11:30am
Sunday, October 15 ~ Wilkes Elementary: Noon – 1:30pm
Sunday, October 15 ~ Troutdale Elementary: 2:00 – 3:30pm
These gatherings will be about honoring and capturing memories, highlighting stories and memorabilia, plus getting folks excited about the new buildings to come. Refreshments will be provided, and we are seeking volunteers to help us plan and conduct each of the events. To contact our group with questions or to volunteer, call 503-618-0946 or 503-661-2164 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come out this fall to celebrate your school!
Please help spread the word to classmates and others who attended one or more of these schools.
The School Celebration Committee is made up of teachers, alumni, the Reynolds School District, and two local historical societies (ECHO – East County Historical Organization and Troutdale Historical Society).
Also that day, following our events, the Reynolds High School Class of 1962 will be hosting their 55th Reunion at the BackRoads Pub & Grub on Orient Drive. This is a “no-host” gathering, and classes before and after 1962 also are invited to attend.
