The days leading up to the 100th day of school are always filled with much anticipation for students. On Friday, the adults in the building couldn't help but feel an almost palpable sense of awe in the air. Along with some bright sunshine and milder temperatures, some noted that the 100th day milestone brought with it a real feeling of accomplishment and pride for being a part of a community that has been open full-time and in person throughout those days.
One of the reasons lower elementary school grades celebrate the 100th day is to highlight their study of place value. Students have been tracking the number of days at school since September and have practiced adding days and watching the tens column and ones column change routinely.
Some examples of the K-1-2 celebration included:
- A special snack! Students gathered 10 pieces of 10 different food and brought them over to their snack mat where they combined to equal 100 snacks!
- A balloon pop game! Students popped balloons to reveal 100 numbered Hershey Kisses. They then placed each candy on its respective spot on the hundreds board.
- "Station Time": Songs, games, and crafts centered on the number 100!
