Henry Hudson Elementary Celebrates Turning 100

In late June, Henry Hudson Elementary alumni, current students, district and school staff and parents came togeather to celebrate 100 years of education.   

The original eight-room school was built on its current site between 1911-1912 at the cost of $48,000. Within a year, the school already was overcrowded and school district planners decided to add an additional eight rooms in January, 1914. On May 31, 1950 the gymnasium building was opened. In the Fall of 2006 Henry Hudson became a dual-track school and currently offers a French Immersion program.

This month's centennial celebration featured a decade-themed rooms, an aboriginal education display, vintage cars and a Triple O food truck.
