The community is cordially invited to celebrate 50 years of quality education with Brady Elementary School staff, students, and parents.

The school will officially mark its 50th anniversary with a school rededication ceremony on Thursday, October 16th.

The 2 p.m. event is open to the public and will be outside, weather permitting.

State Sen. Michael Goschka will present a legislative tribute recognizing the school's golden anniversary.

Several of Brady's former principals will be on hand to share in the celebration, along  with current principal Michael McGough and Chesaning Union School District Superintendent Penny Swanson.

After the ceremony, refreshments will be served in the school gymnasium.

As part of the week's anniversary festivities, students will participate in historical dress up days, Monday through Thursday.

On Monday students will wear attire from the 1980s and 1990s; Tuesday is 1970s Day; Wednesday is 1960s Day; and Thursday will feature fashions from the 1950s.

All students who participate in the dress up days will be entered into a drawing, with the  winner receiving the honor of cutting the ribbon at the rededication ceremony.

Students are putting together items for the schools time capsule, which will be buried at a later date.

Their selections will be on display in the gymnasium, which will also feature a display of historical memorabilia.

Then called Brady Township Unit School, the building was originally dedicated on October 11, 1953.

The new school allowed the Brady Township Unit School District to put several one-room school houses, scattered throughout the township under one roof.

   Brady Elementary Rededicated, October 19, 2003

Brady Elementary School is celebrating 50 years of educational excellence.

Students, Board of Education members and former school principals were on hand last Thursday for Brady's rededication ceremony.

Originally named "Brady Township Unit School," the building was first dedicated on October 11, 1953.

The new school allowed the Brady Township Unit School District to put several one-room schoolhouses, scattered throughout the township, under one roof.

Former principals Thursday at the ceremony included Gary Rekittke, who served from 2000 to 2003, Dave Peterson, 1991 to 2000, Richard Coon, 1988 to 1991, and Jan Krause 1986 to 1988.

John Hunt, principal from 1966 to 1986, was unable to attend because of a family commitment.

Also at the gathering was Basil Coon, the only surviving member of the Brady Township Board of Education from 1953.

He and other board members were instrumental in bringing the school to the township.
