The Lawton community celebrated with a big event for teachers, students and parents who have been part of the school during its 100 years of serving the Magnolia community.
Lenora (Gaerisch) Rohde (on the left) attended Lawton through the 7th grade. She graduated in 1943 and her neice, Doreen (Gaerisch) Delano graduated from the sixth grade at Lawton in 1953. Both women were part of a large group of past students who attended the festivities.
Lots of current students were there too, to view the decade by decade exhibits prepared for the event.
These former teachers and PTA board members enjoyed the event that was sponsored by Office Max, Catering by Phyllis, Terra Bella Flowers and the Lawton staff and PTA.
