The 50th Anniversary Committee is planning a day of special events to honor the school’s half-century of academic excellence and an alumni celebration on Saturday, Jan. 26. The celebration will begin with an alumni breakfast, 9-11 a.m., in the school’s Media Center. The festivities will continue with an alumni pep rally picnic, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., on the school campus. The picnic will be open to the public. The committee is working to secure food vendors and entertainment for the family event.
Alumni can show their school spirit by purchasing a personalized commemorative wall tile, which will be displayed on a 50th Anniversary mural at the school.
“We encourage all Palmetto Middle School alumni to make plans to attend, and to help spread the word about the celebration,” said Ceil Fitts, of the Palmetto Middle School PTSA.
