Saddle shoes, poodle skirts, leather jackets and pompadours were all the rage in the 1950s. On Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017, they were trending everywhere you looked when visiting Connoquenessing Valley Elementary (CVE) School.
More than 800 students, staff, parents and community members spent the day and evening celebrating CVE’s 60th Anniversary; six decades of service and excellence! The evening festivities featured sock hop and hand-jive contests, a soda fountain, hay rides, games, art activities, a PTO Book Fair and a bake sale. Revelers were even greeted by a sunny yellow 1957 Chevy sporting CVE’s well-known honey bee.
CVE opened its doors in October 1957 and a substantial building project was completed in 1992. In 1997 the school went from a K-5 building to a K-4 building as Seneca Valley introduced the middle school team teaching concept, and in 2003, a six-room construction project introduced a second grade classroom wing to the building.
