Robert Frost's 50th Anniversary Honored

The Nov. 28 Board of Education meeting was held for one night at Robert Frost Middle School’s cafeteria, as a special tribute honoring the school’s 50th anniversary.

Frost was founded on Nov. 10, 1967 as Deer Park Junior High School, and at the time, a time capsule was buried in the foundation. Eliana Levey, the current principal, told the audience that the metal box contained facts about the school, and that a new capsule was being created for 2017 with student help, featuring current objects of children’s culture including emojis and spinners. A commemorative video (click here to view) was shown, depicting the history of the school and bringing the audience back in time.

“The entire Robert Frost community came together to celebrate this momentous anniversary,” said Levey. “We chose to highlight the work of our students, the teachers and administrators who came before us, and the legacy we would like to leave that shows our contribution to the excellence of our great school. It was a very emotional evening.”
