Hundreds of students got a chance to go back in time at a Charlottesville school. Greenbrier Elementary celebrated its 50th anniversary with a ceremony in the gymnasium Friday afternoon.

Students dressed up, danced to music, and read facts from each decade since the school opened in 1962.

Former administrators, teachers and staff showed up to be recognized for their work over the years.

"We've gone through the years, at 50 years together and, celebrating education is a big part of our lives.  We learn together.  We used what we learned to experience our futures together and when we look back and we see those influences of people that have been here with us," said Adriane Butler, school counselor.

A timeline display of the school's archives will be available in the school library throughout May.
