BECKLEY,WV (WOAY) – Crab Orchard Elementary school will be hosting a “Rocking It Old School Party” later this week.
After over 70 years of service, Crab Orchard Elementary school is planning a final celebration in recognition of the school’s closing for one final time at the end of this school year.
The party will have food trucks, games and even prize baskets! The event is open to any and everyone in the community.
Though the move to a new school has been in talks for awhile, some teachers aren’t quite ready for the change.
3rd Grade Teacher Amanda Parks said, “I mean it’s going to be bittersweet I’m ready to go to a new building, a new facility, but I’m at Crab Orchard kid my parents went to school here I went to school here my kids are going to school here so I love the school and this community so it’s going to be a sad day.”
The event will take place at the school on May 12, from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Guest are asked to park across the street as there will be a bus shuttle going to and from the school.
