WEST SENECA, NY - Since 1964, East Elementary School has stood proud on Center Road in West Seneca, but come September, East Elementary will be no more.
The district will be consolidating buildings and moving students around.
The older kids will stay put, but the younger ones will be moving to Clinton Street Elementary School.
It's a bittersweet time for East Elementary, and for those who call it their school.
To mark the moment, the school gathered together for one last group picture.
Channel 2 Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke was there to capture the memories.
