Webb’s Lower School celebrates 10 years


Webb School of Knoxville’s Lower School is 10 years old, and to celebrate, it is hosting a yearlong birthday party, which will include monthly events that will all spotlight the number “10.”

“We chose to weave the 10-year celebration throughout the year so that we could highlight various aspects of the school and provide the students with a look back at how their school began ten years ago — before many of them were born,” Webb Lower School director Angie Crabtree said.

Instead of their school uniforms, the 264 kindergarten through fifth-grade students were asked to wear 10 items to school. The kick-off held Monday, Sept. 10, featured a “time capsule” skit highlighting events from 1998 when the school first opened, as well as a video from the Lower School’s inaugural year.

In addition, students were asked to bring in at least 10 cans of food for Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee.

Future “Power of 10” events will include a T-shirt design contest; class projects in November, including “Top-10” lists about Webb’s Lower School; a visit in December by Webb School President Scott Hutchinson, who was Lower School director when the school first opened its doors; a month-long guessing game in January using photos of faculty of staff when they were 10 years old; and a visit in March by members of the Lower School’s first kindergarten class, who are now freshmen in Webb’s Upper School.
