Press Release, April 27, 2004:

Monroe Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization officially began selling nostalgic reproductions of two watercolor paintings of the district’s present school buildings with a presentation to the School Board on Mon., April 26th. Many of those in attendance purchased the pictures and reminisced.

“You know this building was state-of-the-art in the 1950s,” One of the attendees commented, “Nowhere in Ohio did people have a beautiful art-deco-style building like this…”

With the excitement of moving into one new building some of the members of the P.T.O. thought that it would be important to preserve the past by commissioning this work. Glendale, Ohio resident Jack Howard was hired to create these renderings. Each of the two prints measure 17” x 5 ½ “. One depicts the Elementary School, while the other is of the Junior High/Senior High School.

They are available as a set for $50, or each one is available separately for a price of $30. Checks can be made payable to Monroe Elementary School P.T.O.

Remember Monroe alumni who are family and friends and gift-giving opportunities coming up when you purchase these special pieces of art. The purchase price will benefit the new playground fund.
