Albuquerque Public Schools Zia Elementary School will commemorate 60 years of educating Albuquerque children with a celebration from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, May 21, at the school, 440 Jefferson St. NE (map).

The event is free and open to the public.

Billed as a “family reunion,” the school is inviting current and former students and families to go to the school on Friday for a family picnic in the park adjacent to the school. The school will provide cake and refreshments.

At 6 p.m. students in the kindergarten and first grade classes will dance to “Feliz Cumpleaños”  on the basketball court and that will be followed by a short presentation on the school’s history.

“We want to make it a fun, family event,” said Corinne Martinez, a staff member who chaired the celebration committee.

Those attending will be invited into the gym to see a slideshow and photos of past years as well as enjoy music from the six decades since Zia’s opening.
