This year marks the 30th anniversary of Colony Bend Elementary School, and students and staff have taken part in various celebratory events to mark the occasion.
Among the events was a 30th anniversary parade that welcomed parents and former students to the school. Students marched along the school hallways carrying birthday posters and banners. After the parade, guests took part in an assembly in the school’s cafeteria.
Sue Sierra, principal, welcomed guests to the event and introduced students (Muhib Methani, Nicole Haas, Steven Silva and Daisy and Sophie Muddimer) who designed special birthday wagons. School counselor, Sarah Guffey, shared the history of the school and spoke of the many changes that have taken place since the school opened in 1981.
Guests also viewed a photo slideshow of school highlights over the past 30 years, and enjoyed performances by the school’s choir.
