In less than a week, Mary Drew Elementary School will close its doors after four years, a casualty of declining enrollment and district budget cuts.
The decision to close Mary Drew was an emotional one for everyone involved—parents, teachers, staff, administrators. It's a testament to the kind of education students received at Mary Drew that so many people worked to try to keep it open.
After May 29, students and teachers will be going to different schools, but that doesn't mean they have to forget the good times they had at Mary Drew. This page is designed for members of the Summit Hill School District 161 community to share their memories of the school and what it meant to them. People also can post photos and videos of events and other activities.
This is your chance to share with everyone else what made Mary Drew Elementary School so special.
