Rowland High School Celebrates 50 Years With Community Jubilee Sept. 26
Game & Food Booths, Entertainment, Public Tours of New Buildings, Special Alumni Presentation and Homecoming Football Game Planned
ROWLAND HEIGHTS, CA – SEPTEMBER 22, 2014 – The entire community is invited on Friday, September 26, 2014 starting at 3:15 p.m. to celebrate Rowland High School’s 50th anniversary with a fun-filled, community jubilee! Rowland began as a small community where students were just as likely to ride a horse to school as drive a car, and the 50th Jubilee will celebrate with a good ole’ fashioned Country/Western theme. Everyone is invited: alumni, students, parents, faculty/staff (past and present), and community members. For the latest information, visit www.rowlandhs.org.
The campus will be filled with free activities such as game and photo booths, entertainment, visit “Memory Lane Displays” and tours of the new modernized facilities will begin at 3:15 p.m. There will also be a variety of food booths. A special opportunity to meet former and current faculty and staff including every Principal in Rowland High’s history will take place at 6:30 p.m. in the Gym. The Rowland Raiders Homecoming Football Game begins at 7 p.m. (Game tickets are $6, students $3.)
NEW BUILDING TOURS:
D-Building: This building was expanded to nine classrooms housing science classes (Physics, Anatomy, Biology, Chemistry and Earth Science). Each room features individual lab stations, interactive whiteboards, voice amplification, chemical resistant cabinets, countertops and flooring and the chemistry rooms feature fume hoods. There is also a central common instructor’s work room that includes instrument and chemical storage.
E-Building: This building mainly houses Career Technical Education classrooms. Every classroom has new doors, flooring and tackable wall surfaces. Many rooms have interactive whiteboards and voice amplification or are wired to receive the technology in the near future. The modernization of this building includes four new computer labs, the Rainbow Preschool facility, child care and home economics rooms. The culinary arts room was previously modernized, but recently also included technology upgrades.
Aquatics Center: The new facility features a designed plaza entrance with an expanded 12 lane pool and deck. It has a shade structure with seating, a digital scoreboard, lighting, new filtering equipment and the infrastructure to add solar technology in the future. Restroom facilities for the athletes and public have been added along with team rooms, outdoor showers and a coach’s office.
The Future: In the next few years, the community can look forward to: a state-of-the-art performing arts center, a new multipurpose room, eating facilities, student quad area, a two-story administration building with a new library on the top floor, and a new two-story classroom building that will replace portable buildings.
“Being a lifelong Raider as a student, teacher, and now principal of the school, I am very proud of its history and traditions. I look forward to highlighting the school and its connection to the community at our Jubilee and I hope everyone can join us,” said Rowland High School Principal Mitch Brunyer, who is in charge of the volunteer committee.
