Casey elementary school celebrates 50 years

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Students at one JPS school took a trip back in time Thursday morning.

 In honor of Casey Elementary School's 50th anniversary…music from the past filled the school. Students enjoyed listening to a number of local musical artists, including Blues man Jesse Robinson. Casey Elementary is known for its excellence in teaching the performing and visual arts.

Students have been studying the music, literature and arts of the past fifty years in preparation for the schools anniversary.            

JPS Interim Superintendent Jayne Sargent says, "I think it's absolutely fantastic that children at an early age in our elementary schools get an opportunity to relive those days in their dress and their art and the music and the wonderful artists who have come to share their time and to share those periods of history with the students."

November 9th is Casey Elementary School's official anniversary. However, school administrators say they're celebrating all year long!
