Students Celebrate 100th Day of Learning

The students of May Moore Elementary School in Tammy Cotrone’s first-grade class learned an important lesson about helping others as they prepared for their 100th day of school celebration. Students collected cans of food to donate to a local soup kitchen, tallying the number of cans brought into the classroom each day. The class couldn’t be more proud to see the shopping cart overflowing, which meant they had accomplished their goal of collecting at least 100 cans and non-perishables by the 100th day of school, a goal they achieved while learning the importance of community service.

At John Quincy Adams Elementary School, first-grade students turned the clock forward and dressed as if they were 100 years old, with looks that included white wigs, pearls and spectacles. Students rotated to educational stations centered on the “100” theme, where they worked on MacBooks, counted and sorted various items, and created art projects.
