“Our students past and present are proud of their school,†said Lattimore. “This is a place where children, parents, teachers and staff make memories that they cherish for a lifetime.â€
The event begins at 10 am and is open to the public. Brockton Avenue Elementary is located at 1309 Armacost Avenue in Los Angeles.
