Welborn Elementary School, 5200 Leavenworth Road, Kansas City, Kansas, was open for tours on Alumni Night, May 23, as a way of saying goodbye to the school building before it is torn down in June.
A new school building is replacing the older one.
Boxes were packed Thursday, just waiting for the big move to the newly built school.
My daughters all went to Welborn Elementary, and I volunteered lots of hours there as a parent.
It was very interesting to see all ages attending Alumni Night, including some students from the 1950s, along with some as recently as today.
There are lots of memories within those two buildings and memories written on those walls.
