Sunday: Menlo School celebrates centennial

 

Menlo School is hosting what it's calling "the picnic of the century" this Sunday (May 31) as part of a year-long centennial celebration.

More than 500 people are expected to attend the private school's 100-year anniversary party on the Atherton campus from noon to 4 p.m.

Present and past Menlo students, families, teachers, staff and community members are invited to enjoy activities such as jumpy houses, a Velcro wall, an obstacle course, jousting, face painting, volleyball, live music and performances.

Old-fashioned candy, root beer floats, cotton candy, and snow cones will be served in addition to a barbecue.

Menlo's origins go back to a military school, the William Warren School, founded in 1915 with 13 boys.

Today Menlo is a co-ed college preparatory school with a total enrollment of 795 middle and high school students. The school is at 50 Valparaiso Ave.
