Students celebrated the 100th Day of School by completing many enjoyable activities. Some of our students dressed as they might look when they are 100 years old! The kindergarteners made a special hat and necklace, painted 10 sets of 10 dots to create a 100 dot picture, used 100 cups and 100 pattern blocks to build, played Race to 100, and weighed 100 pennies to find out what was heavier/lighter. Students ate 100th day snacks, as well.
Today, our students and staff showed our support for women with heart disease by wearing red. With prevention education we hope to put an end to cardiac and stroke events!
