Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Bicentennial Celebration at Eastern Greene Bicentennial Celebration at Eastern Greene

At Eastern Greene Elementary, students will participate in a Bicentennial celebration on December 9 with a scavenger hunt created by the Bloomfield Public Library. Students will make Christmas ornaments shaped like our great state as well as enjoying Indiana shaped cookies.

Q&A with Legacy Project Coordinator Mandy Buskirk

What do you consider the key accomplishment of your Legacy Project?

  • The 4th grade students at Eastern Greene Elementary celebrated Indiana's Bicentennial on Friday, December 9, 2016. The state turning 200 was a very memorable event for the students. They will always remember that they were in 4th grade when Indiana turned 200.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.

  • The students created Indiana Bicentennial Christmas Ornaments. The ornament was a green rectangle to represent Greene County. Then they had a blue di-cut shape of the state of Indiana. They put a gold star where Eastern Greene is located. The other side had a state flag that was colored by each student. They also made Indiana shaped sugar cookies and had a birthday celebration for the state.

How/where are you preserving information related to your Legacy Project?

  • We have a Bicentennial Wall in our school. We started the year with a mural of places in Indiana. We have added pictures, postcards, and brochures to the wall. Now we are adding our Legacy Projects with pictures, info, and the seal to our Bicentennial Wall. We are also in the process of creating a page on our school website.
