Current And Former Students Gather To Celebrate Mark Twain Elementary

May 10, 2014, 6:00 PM by Leland Steva

Current And Former Students Gather To Celebrate Mark Twain Elementary

It's been a staple of the Sioux Falls community, and today current and former students walked the halls of Mark Twain before construction ramps up this summer.

It was the Mark Twain all school celebration today. There was a mural in the gym of the school where people were able to color or sign. People were able to tour the school and talk to teachers from different generations.

“The buzz around the hall of all the current students, former teacher, former students has really been exciting. A lot of people sharing stories reconnecting with people they haven't been a while so it's exactly what we hoped,” event organizer Sarah Jennings said.

The school will be torn down and turned into Susan B Anthony Elementary, which is currently being built. Cathy Anderson, who taught at Mark Twain for 38 years, says she will always remember the school, even if it’s no longer standing.

“The best thing about Mark Twain really are the parents and the kids and just so involved in helping everything. Lots of good memories around here,” Anderson said.

Mark Twain and Longfellow Elementary will be merged. The new school will be ready for students by the start of the next school year.
