Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 1:00-2:00 p.m.

This presentation will describe how the Mokena School District was formed and had its beginnings even before the Village of Mokena was founded. The talk will reveal how the school district grew  from 2 ½ square miles with 26 students in 1847, to  more than 12 ½ square miles in 1978 with over 1000 students on a multi school campus. It will also reveal where the first school building was located, when the Mokena High School was formed and dissolved, why and when Mokena got its first school bus, how the district   became 159, and other interesting facts from the history of Mokena Schools.

 

There will be a display of Mokena School pictures and memorabilia. Everyone attending will receive a color picture of the 1872 school house.
