East High School 75th Anniversary Celebration
East High School
2929 Charles Street
Rockford, IL 61108
Rockford East High School is celebrating its 75th anniversary with an open house on Friday, April 17th from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m. This special night will feature a walk through time from 1940 to 2015. Memorabilia and music spanning eight decades will be featured in designated classrooms and common areas throughout the building for guests to enjoy and reminisce.
Guests will also have the opportunity to view the remodeled library and new main office, and peek into the new state-of-the-art athletics field house, scheduled for completion later this year. The beautifully renovated auditorium may be viewed up until 7:30 p.m. as the East High Drama Dept. prepares to present its annual spring play, “Seussical The Musical,” at 8 p.m. Discounted tickets will be available to open house guests who may wish to attend the performance.
A recap of the history of the school and E-Rab achievements through the years will be presented in the historic gym at 7:30 p.m. The evening will conclude with performances by the East High band and cheer and dance teams, followed by anniversary cake and other refreshments in the concessions area.
This event is free and open to the public, especially all E-Rab alumni, their families, and past administration and faculty — once an E-Rab, always an E-Rab!
