As Forsyth County’s oldest school celebrates its 80th anniversary in the community, school leaders at Big Creek Elementary say they want to hear from former students and staff members prior to the school’s anniversary celebration in May.

According to Laura Webb, principal at Big Creek Elementary, in order to celebrate the historic anniversary, the school is asking for anyone associated with Big Creek over the years to fill out a short survey concerning their time at the school.

“We are a school with a rich history in our community, and we are ready to celebrate our 80th Anniversary,” Webb said in a press release. “We want to include anyone who has ever been involved with our historic school over the years.”

The release states that former students, staff and community members can also leave a lasting legacy at Big Creek by purchasing a personalized brick that will be placed on the school’s grounds.

Bricks can be purchased for $39 and will be installed prior to the anniversary celebration event. Learn more about purchasing a brick by visiting

Big Creek’s anniversary celebration will be held at the school on Friday, May 8, from 5-8 p.m.
