That photo was taken on the grounds of the historic Fauntleroy Schoolhouse, shortly after its 1917 opening. Though it’s not in service as a public school any more, it’s part of the heart of the Fauntleroy community, and that’s why planning is already accelerating for the schoolhouse’s centennial celebration. Fauntleroy communicator/community advocate Judy Pickens shares this information on how to help, starting now:

The Fauntleroy Schoolhouse will turn 100 in 2017, and a planning committee is laying the groundwork for several events to honor “A Century of Serving the Community.” Here’s how you might help:

§ Photos and memorabilia from your time at the school, either donated or loaned.

§ To build a database, your full name, contact information, and year(s) you were a student or staff member at the school.

§ Centennial event planning. If you would like to help, meet at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 31, at the Original Bakery.

If you can help with any of the above, please email faunt.schoolhouse100years@gmail.com.

The first centennial event will be an open house next May. Grander celebrations will follow in 2017.

The schoolhouse (file photo above) has been community-owned since the purchase from Seattle Public Schools was completed four years ago.
