First-grade students dressed in clothes from the 1950's to celebrate the 50th day of school.The 1st-graders at Rockfish Elementary celebrated the 50th day of school in several ways.    In Social Studies, they studied life in the 1950s and compared it to life today.  They even got to tour a 1950s museum the teachers set up to show them items that were used 60 years ago.  They also got to drink root beer floats and work on activities where they counted to 50 and 100.  Both the 1st-graders and Kindergarten students finished their celebration by dressing in 1950s clothing for the day.  The students really enjoyed it and learned some interesting history.
