Blaker-Kinser Jr. High School celebrated its 25th anniversary on Friday, Sept. 20 with a special community festival.
Held from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., the event was attended by more than 200 people.
“We had a really good turnout,” said Principal Danielle Cox. “It was wholesome fun for students and families. Our staff was a part of it.”
Activities included a festival featuring games, bounce houses donated by Jonathan’s Jumpers, face painting by Blaker-Kinser advanced art students and food booths manned by school clubs.
“All the proceeds from the event went back to our students,” Cox said.
Teacher/Advisor Kelsey Plaa and ASB students organized the event.
Blaker-Kinser photos taken over the past 25 years were exhibited in a “museum” set up inside the cafeteria.
“We had pictures from the very beginning,” the principal noted. “Our yearbook students also did a timeline.”
The school opened in 1994.
