On September 23, 2018, the Wiles Hill School Alumni Association Foundation realized phase 1 of its mission to preserve the 89 year history of Wiles Hill Elementary School. On the above date we gathered, alumni and friends, to celebrate the opening of a "four seasons" permanent exhibition of old school days in the words and images of those who lived (and live) them in memory. The exhibit is housed in what was the special needs classroom, now also the location of the Association's offices and work space. The first image you will see below is what the room looked like when the school was closed in 1999.
