Hubbell Elementary Celebrates 100 Years
The public is invited to Hubbell Elementary School’s community open house to celebrate the school’s 100-year anniversary. The event will be held:
Sunday, Sept. 20
Hubbell Elementary School
800 42nd St.
Members of the community are invited to tour the school and view historic photos and a centennial book published by Hubbell Elementary School parents. The school’s new mural painted by Mason City artist Paul Micich will be unveiled in the library. The mural was inspired by long-time Hubbell volunteer and photographer Joe Reid, who passed away in 2008. Hubbell students served as models for the painting.
Hubbell Elementary School also is hosting “1909 Day” at the school on Thursday, September 17. Forty parent and community volunteers will visit to teach students about what life was like when the school was built, complete with period costumes, games, food and music. The all-day event begins with an all-school assembly featuring former students Charlie Wittmack and Gordon McCollum, with an all-school picnic at lunch time.
“We are calling the celebration ‘Moments That Mark a Lifetime’ because we are fortunate to have so much history here at Hubbell,” said Tim Schott, principal at Hubbell Elementary School. “Our students and staff are excited to hear from past students and parents about their memories of the school and make their own memories to share many years from now.”
