100th Day of School
Monday, February 2nd, marked the 100th Day of school for the 2014-15 school year. As we are a base-ten culture, the passing of the 100th day of school is a landmark for students and teachers every year. This year the SSIS elementary division rallied together to make this landmark day something extra special.
As students came to school they were greeted by Mr. Sullivan, who just happened to be celebrating his 100th birthday. Many students counted 100 steps down the breezeway towards the atrium and wrote their names on the breezeway walk to mark their 100th step. In the atrium they met Ms. Reynolds, who had an activity where students created 100th Day cards. Then Mr. Keller and Ms. Rena greeted student with a 100th Day sticker just before students jumped through a giant 100 as they entered school for the day.
After students checked into class, all classes made their way to the auditorium for a 100th Day celebration assembly. The assembly was led by students and every grade contributed to a 100th Day performance. The assembly ended with all students and teachers making their way out to the ES field to create a giant 100 with their bodies.
Later in the day each class paired up with another class from a different grade level to play games and explore activities that centered around numbers and of course the landmark number 100. Our students and teachers have worked hard and learned much during the previous 100 days of school. We are looking forward to all of the learning to come before the final day of this school year on June 11th, 2015.
