The Hopatcong School District is always looking for new ways to educate and teach students, just had a celebration of the ’50s to mark the 50th day of school.

Do you remember the 50’s?

During the 1950s, a sense of uniformity pervaded American society. Conformity was common, as young and old alike followed group norms rather than striking out on their own. The '50s was an era called the Golden Age of Capitalism, a period of unprecedented economic growth that benefited both the capitalists and workers, as a result of higher wages.

Durban Avenue Elementary School:

Everything old is new again!  All the "cool cats and kittens" of Durban Avenue Elementary School celebrated their 50th day of school on November 18th by doing their best to style themselves in the hair and fashions of the 1950s. 

Poodle skirts, scarves, rolled-up jeans, and leather jackets all made an appearance as everyone showed off during virtual instruction.  Students even got a taste of the music of the '50s and everyone worked on different ways to count and build the number 50. A great time was had by students and staff alike!

Enjoy their presentation of the ’50s in pictures from the Hopatcong Durban Avenue Elementary School Students.
