Phenix Holds Open House June 4

phenix2Phenix Early Childhood Center will hold an open house on Wednesday, June 4 from 3-6 p.m. to honor the building’s 75 years as a school. The current structure was built in 1939 and was at one time the only elementary school in West Des Moines. It currently serves students in kindergarten through third grade.

Families, alumni and community members are invited to take a look back at the building’s history through displays and a self-guided tour of the school. There also will be refreshments and children’s activities. The Phenix Parent Faculty Club will be selling t-shirts to raise funds for a newly established scholarship to assist a Phenix student in continuing his or her education after high school.

This is the building’s last year as a school due to recent budget reductions and it is currently for sale by the school district. For more information on Phenix Early Childhood Center, please visit:
