A teacher and child reunion

Email News Alerts

When the Callaway Elementary School closed its doors on the last day of classes in May 2005, it was a particularly sad moment for the students and staff, because they knew they wouldn't be back in the fall.


Callaway Elementary was closed by the Detroit Lakes School District at the end of the 2004-05 school year, but last Sunday, July 9, about 70 of those former students, parents and staff reunited for an afternoon of fun, games and reminiscing at the Callaway Community Center.
