John Henderson Elementary School took staff, students and guests back in time on Thursday, November 21st to celebrate the schools' 50th year anniversary.
Over 200 hundred attendees were treated to a day of celebrations that included an afternoon student-led concert highlighting song and dance performances from across the decades starting with the swinging 1960s.
"Every student and staff member was involved in putting this day together, " says Vice Principal Rajneil Deo. "The day was meant to take us back in time to show the history of our school from its opening day on November 22nd, 1963."
A sense of nostalgia filled the hallways as former principals and vice-principals re-connected and a few staff remembered their days at the school as students. A time capsule was created to hold students' predictions for life and times in 2063 including class photos from each grade.
"It was a great success," says Deo. "We all learned a lot about how the school evolved over the years."
