A 100-year anniversary committee has been formed to commemorate the founding of the Long Beach City School District, which became School District #28 and elected its first Board of Education members in 1913. The first official meeting, which took place on Sept. 13, attracted students, teachers, administrators, alumni and community members who are interested in planning the celebration of this momentous occasion.
The theme of the commemorative events, which are expected to span the course of two years, is “Celebrating Long Beach School District’s Commitment to Education.” Three subcommittees formed to discuss ways that activities and events can be used to enhance student appreciation of Long Beach history, celebrate individuals who made Long Beach great, and also trace the evolution of the school system and its physical plants.
The next meeting of the 100-year anniversary committee will take place on Oct. 30 at 4 p.m. at the Long Beach High School library. New committee members are welcome. For more information, please contact the district clerk at 516-897-2108.
