Assets In Action: Cheetahs share memories

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

I hope last weekend gave you a taste for spring break.

As we get closer to that time, I hope you take the opportunity to recharge your batteries and celebrate the successes along the way.

Last week, Chamisa Elementary School celebrated their 45th birthday with two events.

Earlier this year, Principal Debbie Smith fired up some Facebook frenzy and launched a ton of memories.

Smith created a Chamisa Elementary School page that has more than 355 members. The members include former students, former and current staff and a few parents, too.

Chamisa alumni post everything from favorite memories to what they are doing today and where they are now.

Max Katko posted some really great old photos of the original move.

Former principals including Cookie Halsted, Kate Thomas and Cindy Montoya, came to one of the two celebrations. Principal Grimes sent his fond memories via email, read by current staff member Rachel Wehner. It was said that she had visited his office a time or two as a student, but those details are still pending.

Even our current School Board President Dr. Kevin Honnell was a Cheetah that fall of 1968, arriving after the start of the school year.

Back in the day (as the kids say) the students at Chamisa went home for lunch.
