Back to the 50s


Chrissie York’s first grade class celebrated the 50th day of school Oct. 24 at St. Mary’s Catholic School. The students, dressed in 50s attire, had a traditional sock hop where they counted the number of times they could hula hoop, do the bunny hop and do the twist in 50 seconds. They discussed the culture of the 50s and compared it to today and studied the difference between the three states of matter while making root beer floats.
