The celebration lasted a week
and included a variety of activities, speeches, and special events.
Some of the centennial
activities included a carnival, school dance, casino night, and kickoff football game.

The school seal
was scheduled to be presented on the final day of centennial activities.
It would then be
placed at the entrance to the school, in all school classrooms, and in the gymnasium.
