Cypress, TX News – Cy-Fair ISD Closes Out 75th Anniversary With a Bang

Cypress, TX News (April 27, 2015) - Thousands of community members helped bring Cypress-Fairbanks ISD’s 75th Anniversary school year celebration to a close at the 75th Anniversary Festival at the Berry Center on April 25.

Sponsored by Northwest Dodge and Bridgeland, the year-end celebration capped a school year that has paid tribute to 75 years of excellence dating back to the union of the Cypress and Fairbanks school systems in 1939.

The free event kicked off in the front parking lot of the Berry Center with carnival amusements, games, bounce houses, a climbing wall, a juggler, unicyclist, stilt walker and a horse-and-buggy ride. More than 60 vendor booths lined the center of the carnival. Local country-western band Sawdust Road provided musical entertainment, and guests dined from various food trucks.

The evening concluded inside Berry Center Stadium, where spectators were treated to performances by Martial Arts USA, the Cypress Lakes and Cypress Ranch high school drill teams and the Cy-Fair High School marching band.

Student representatives from each district campus paraded into the stadium while holding a banner bearing their school’s name, then performed “We’ve Schools Everywhere,” a spin-off of the song “I’ve Been Everywhere” that listed each district school and support facility.

Hollie Davies, regional director of U.S. Congressman Michael McCaul’s (TX-10) office, then presented Dr. Mark Henry, CFISD superintendent, with a Certificate of Congressional Recognition to commemorate Cypress-Fairbanks ISD’s 75th Anniversary school year.

After briefly addressing the crowd, Dr. Henry cued a seven-minute fireworks display, which lit up the sky over the Berry Center scoreboard.

“Cypress-Fairbanks ISD has always focused on Our Children. Our Schools. Our Community,” Dr. Henry said to the audience. “That has been the yearlong theme of our 75th Anniversary, and I have been so honored to serve as your superintendent throughout this milestone. Thank you for joining in that celebration with us.”
