Michelago Public School celebrates its 150th birthday in early 2018.
 
Planning is well underway to celebrate the small community’s public school, including efforts to trace descendants of the first teacher – John Jacob -- from the mid-19th century.
 
They've arranged with a supplier to make available historical paver tiles which can be purchased, and later set in a display at the school to honour the anniversary. 

A small committee of local parents, former students and volunteers from in and around the community of fewer than 600 residents are working to establish contact with former students and their families.

March 24th, 2018 is when the day full of celebrations will take place.
