Kingman photos: Family & School History

Palo Christi Elementary School held an 85th anniversary celebration on May 2, displaying old photos, mementos and documents from its long and varied history. The public was invited to walk the halls and remember days gone by. There was also a book sale and other activities for kids. Here, Barbara Pike shows her granddaughter Haydn Snelling, 7 (center), and Hayley, 5, old documents with their parent's names on them. Pike's mother, Wanda Hull, was a teacher at Palo Christi in the 1930s and '40s. Pike went to the school in 1951-56 and returned to teach there herself in the '70s and '80s. Now Hayley goes to the school.
