After flood, fire and the constant rumor of zombies or locusts, Chamisa Elementary turns 45-years-old today.
Festivities have been set for Wednesday, with a school board meeting and the science fair dinner for regional qualifiers planned for tonight.
Wednesday will host a short celebration at 11:30 a.m., complete with cupcakes, song and a salute to retiring teacher Kathy Kelly.
A few surprise guests are slated for the events, which have been kept under wraps.
The evening event takes place at 6 p.m. with a special color guard from the Los Alamos High School NJROTC program. The program will send Cheetah alumni to parade the colors, signaling the official event start.
A community potluck is the fare for the evening, or special arrangements to order dinner can be done by calling Brian at the Bandelier Grill. The Apells, a Chamisa family, recently bought the grill.
Sixth grade students will host a jewelry sale, thanks to the help of Chamisa art teacher, Renee Mitsunaga. Mitsunaga has worked with a variety of students during the lunch hour to have hand made gifts available. A veritable plethora of baked goods will be sold for those additional last-minute Valentine’s Day gifts.
