FILER, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — UPDATE: The Filer High School posted on Saturday that they are having to cancel their event. In a Facebook post they wrote

“Due to a devastating loss in our school community we will need to cancel tonight’s 100 year celebration. We are so sorry to do this on such short notice and will be happy to refund any tickets purchased if you would please contact our district’s business office on Monday (208-326-5981). We will work on formulating a new plan to auction the donations off at a later date. Thank you for your thoughts & understanding during this incredibly difficult time. The gym will be open from 6-7 if members of the community want to check out the memorabilia. Thank you!”

Since 1922, Filer High School has been educating the children of Southern Idaho’s small town. This weekend, the school looks back at a century of wildcats.

Saturday night in the Filer High School gymnasium, a 100 year anniversary celebration will be held with dinner, entertainment, auctions and more.

The school is welcoming alumni from all classes, their families and the community to join in the celebration.

A key part of the celebration, according to principal Shane Hild, is current student involvement. He says students will be serving dinner and providing entertainment as a way to connect them with the school’s history.

“I think it’s important to stop and recognize that it has been a century that kids have been graduating from Filer High School, and how important that is to our community,” Hild said.
