Gales Creek – On the grounds of the historic Gales Creek Elementary School, past attendees of the former elementary school will gather on August 13 from 1-5 pm to remember days gone by learning and studying in the only school remaining in the Gales Creek valley.
The site of the former elementary school is currently host to Oak Grove Academy, a therapeutic program that serves students that qualify for special education from grades 6-12.
According to the organizers of the event, all Gales Creek Elementary School alumni, staff, families, and Gales Creek community residents are welcome at the potluck-style event. Attendees are asked to bring a side dish, salad, or dessert. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and drinks will be provided.
Alcohol and pets are not allowed on school grounds.
The school is located at 9125 NW Sargent Rd, Gales Creek, OR 97117.
