George C. Clarke Elementary will celebrate 100 years this Saturday, April 25, 11-3. 

 

Apparently, Rod Roddy was a student!

Sometimes, it takes a while for me to post.  I attended George Clarke from 1964 until 1969.  I also made it to the 100th year anniversary celebration.  The school has been listed for quite some time with a building description on the site. The listing is here: http://www.fortworth.../clarkeelem.htm

John, I'm sorry to have missed meeting you. It was a very well-attended event, don't you think?

I still can't believe Rod Roddy was an alumnus!

I'm proud that my kids go there.

I'm sorry that I missed meeting you, as well.  I stayed a couple of hours and I did have a name tag.  I would have stayed for the entire event, but the storm the night before put out my power and I wanted to check on the house.
