Saying goodbye to Thomas Jefferson Elementary
The Louisa County Public School division is holding a closing ceremony to honor the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School building, and to celebrate all of the memories that have been experienced during the past 58 years. It will also be a time for the community to say goodbye to a building that is special and holds historical significance to each and every Louisa County resident as it has also been used as A.G. Richardson High School, Z.C. Morton Elementary, Louisa Intermediate School and Louisa Middle School.
The ceremony will be held at the Thomas Jefferson Elementary School site (1782 Jefferson Highway, Louisa, VA) on Friday, May 11 at 5 p.m. During the event there will be guest speakers reminiscing about the many memories that took place in the building, and attendees will also have an opportunity to write down their favorite memories which will be used later in the new school.
Demolition of the Thomas Jefferson Elementary building will take place in June, and once the process is completed community members will have an opportunity to obtain a brick from the structure. The brick pick-up will take place in July at the school site on 1782 Jefferson Highway, Louisa, VA. More information will be released once the details are finalized.
