THE OLD SANIBEL SCHOOLHOUSE FESTIVITIES LUMINARY NIGHT:

The Sanibel School is very special. It was the first school in Lee County to be desegregated so that white and black children could go to school together. That happened in 1963. Before The Sanibel School, there was an old one-room Schoolhouse at the Historical Village. It was built in 1896 and is the oldest building in the Village. It was at Periwinkle Way and Bailey Road. In 1903, it was moved down the road to Periwinkle Way and Purdy Road to make it easier for children on the west side of Sanibel to go to school. It stayed there for 100 years until it was moved to the Historical Village. Teachers taught grades 1 through 8 in this one-room schoolhouse. Grades were separated in rows running from front to back. One of the first teachers was Lettie Nutt, and she was paid $2.50 per student per semester. Another teacher, Nancy McCann, wore bobby sox and taught baseball at recess. This one-room school closed in 1964.

The festivities, for the evening start at 3:30 and end at 5:30 on Friday, Dec. 1, 2017. The old Schoolhouse will be open during the entire time. This is our annual Luminary Open House, with free admission, refreshments, and holiday music.

The following students have work displayed in the schoolhouse this year: Kindergarten: Ivery Williams. Grade 1: Dillon Barron, Maja Mossberg, Regan Gould, Danylo Zacharievich. Grade 2: Lilly Wolf, Jillian Breece, Yuan Bonhayag, Kirby Padgett, Madden Johnson. Grade 3: Sammy Wells, Pierce Farhat, Hayden Fuller, Chloe Peelman, and Rivkah Livermon. Grade 4: Lily Brennan, Molly Dunn, Caroline Muddell, Audrey Mulka, Kate Sawicki, and Ava Selby. Grade 5: Grace McKinney.
