Local students celebrate 100th day of school

Fayette County Schools celebrated the 100th day of school last Tuesday. On the first day of school, classes began keeping track of the number of days that they have been in school in anticipation of the 100th day. Teachers celebrated with various mathematical concepts using the number 100.
At Buckley-Carpenter Elementary, Mandy Collins’s kindergarten students made $100 bills, wrote numbers to 100, counted to 100, drew pictures of what they would look like at 100 years old, took 100 steps around the school and participated in several other 100th-day projects.
“The kids had a blast,” Principal Constance Wright said. “They didn’t want the 100th day of school to end. Not only was this day fun, but it was also a way for them to learn about the number 100.”
Kristin Storz’s kindergarten class at LaGrange Moscow participated in a number of activities also.
“They pretended that they were 100 years old,” she said. “Most of them said they would sleep all day if they were 100.”
The students also took part in counting 100 Fruit Loops and made edible necklaces with them.
Students now know they only have about 70 more days until summer break.
