R.B. Cox Elementary School is turning 90 and the school wants the community’s help to help detail its history.
The school is preparing a 90th Year Celebration for alumni, current students, current and former staff, families with connections to the school and members of the Dade City community.
To help get ready for a series of celebrations that will begin in September, efforts are underway to collect photographs and other mementoes that will be used to help provide a glimpse of the past.
The school also is seeking alumni that are interested in being interviewed to be part of the school’s montage video, according to a news release.
Founded in 1926 as Dade City Grammar School, the school was renamed to honor Superintendent and former Principal Rodney B. Cox after he lost his battle with cancer in 1973.
The first event is set for Sept. 30 at the elementary school, 37615 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., in Dade City.
