We are so excited to be celebrating our 110th year. Abraham Lincoln’s PTA (that’s us) has been around for 110 years; we are a Legacy PTA.
Upon searching historical documents, we found Abraham Lincoln Elementary School has only been around since the approximately 1936 and is a Nationally registered Historical Landmark. It was build to replace Garey Elementary School which was destroyed due to fire. As far as the record shows, that is where our PTA began…at Garey Elementary. Our PTA even predates most of the Lincoln Park Historic homes that surround our school.
To celebrate, we are inviting our community, including the Pomona USD Board of Education, to stop by the PTA room (Rm 11) at Abraham Lincoln Elementary on Tuesday, January 10th, 2012 during the school day for a special Birthday Celebration.
Want to get a glimpse into what was happening in Pomona around the same time our PTA started years ago?
