It’s also the centennial year for the Litchfield Elementary School District, a milestone being marked with weekend events plus a campaign to establish a permanent reminder of the occasion.

The centennial will be celebrated with entertainment by pupil groups from the district from 10:20 a.m. to 1:55 p.m. Saturday on two stages at Litchfield Elementary School, 255 E. Wigwam Blvd., Litchfield Park.

Acts will include choirs, a sign language club, drum line, theater group and bands.

Pupil artwork created for the centennial will be on display along with the results of a Future Schools Competition, which challenged pupil teams to design a school 100 years into the future.

Also on display will be history projects created by fourth-graders who have studied local history and the city and school district’s centennials.

The Litchfield Elementary School District Educational Foundation will have a booth near the gazebo.

In honor of the anniversary, the foundation has launched the “Centennial Way Campaign’’ to raise $100,000 for an endowment to recognize teacher and staff excellence.

Funds are being collected through donations starting at $100 for bricks for Centennial Way to be constructed at the southwest corner of the Litchfield Elementary School campus.

More than $30,000 has been raised by the campaign, which is expected to conclude by Aug. 1, with the walk to be unveiled on Oct. 20.
