Press Release: Do You Remember When…?

You are invited to a farewell open house this Saturday for the current Des Moines Elementary building, which has been a school since 1925.

Walk the halls one last time on Saturday, June 1, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. See past and present faculty and staff, and reunite with old elementary school classmates.

There is no fee for the walk-through. There is a small cost for the lasagna dinner and other offerings to raise funds for the Des Moines Elementary PTSA prior to moving to a new, larger building, opening this fall at 23801 16th Ave South in Des Moines.
