CARMICHAEL, CA (MPG) - Carmichael’s oldest school has begun its 101st year. Carmichael Elementary (Sutter Avenue) opened its doors for Centenary celebrations last week. An estimated 600 past and present students -- and many former teachers -- attended family-style festivities.

The formal program included a performance of the school song. Borrowing melody from the US Army’s “Caisson Song,” the school’s previous Principal, Brandei Smith, authored its lyrics. The “Cougar Song,” declares:

“We are bright, we don’t fight -- we will always choose the right -- as the Cougars go rolling along (Rah! Rah!)…”

Oldest reunion participant was Jack Pefley, 94, a WW II veteran who trudged to school from his family’s Palm Drive farm during the 1920s. He and siblings began three generations of his clan to attend the institution. Youngest centenary attendees included 2018 kindergarten pupils.
