Logan Elementary School hits the century mark

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Logan Elementary School celebrated its 100th anniversary on Wednesday with a throwback. As part of the theme, all modern technology was mostly off limits.

Slates and chalk were used instead of smart board and computers.

Female teachers showed up for school sporting long skirts and pinned-up hairstyles that were popular in 1913. Students were also invited to dress in 1913 fashions.

As for the men, they were asked to wear suspenders, bow ties, and straw hats.

The celebration continues Friday. That's when a school-wide birthday party will be held complete with a huge cake and a proclamation from the city of Columbia.
