Blackburn Elementary celebrates a milestone!
Blackburn Elementary School celebrates 50 years of education!
Blackburn held an assembly where students and staff commemorated the grand milestone.
Dr. Jim Hinson and Board of Education member Ken Johnston both spoke during the assembly.
Students read pieces of work they wrote to describe the big event, performed a skit dedicated to anything 50 years and older and also sang a song to wish Blackburn Happy Birthday.
The entire assembly was recorded and will be placed in time capsule for students in the future to take a look at how the major milestone was celebrated.
Guests took a tour of the school, had their picture taken for the time capsule, wrote their favorite memories of Blackburn, viewed memorabilia, added a link to the Blackburn Birthday chain, and watched the video that was created to celebrate Blackburn.
