Loma Portal Elementary celebrates its centennial with Living History Day

Students at Loma Portal Elementary School in Point Loma experienced what school was like in 1914 by participating in a Living History Day on campus earlier this month.
 Loma Portal Living History Day
In collaboration with Old Town State Historic Park, students enjoyed authentically historic lessons, crafts, and playground games. Teachers at the school dressed in period attire and adapted their classes to create an atmosphere reflecting school days of years past. Highlights included making pioneer dolls, playing marbles on the playground, and the presence of Miss Grace Evelyn Farley, Loma Portal’s first teacher.

Congratulations to Loma Portal Elementary School on 100 years of service to the Point Loma community.
