Did you know that Menaul School is Albuquerque’s oldest school? That’s just one of the interesting things participants learned watching the Menaul School Virtual Birthday Celebration, which kicked off our 125th anniversary celebrations on Friday, January 29!
The live Zoom/Facebook event featured a greeting from Mayor Keller and a number of wonderful adult and student speakers. Overall the video event provided glimpses into our school’s illustrious heritage, our present-day mission, and our exciting vision for the Menaul School’s future. Altogether, the whole event of this was capped off by an inspiring birthday video featuring the entire student body! (Our students are awesome!)
