The elementary students celebrated being 100 days smarter during their respective 100 days of school celebrations on Feb. 26.

Each building held different activities all centered around the number 100. Students dressed up as if they were 100 years old and paraded around the buildings with walkers and canes in hand. At Forest Avenue Elementary, each class comprised a list of the “100 Things We Love about Forest” to be hung in the main lobby. Each student also received the number 100, which will be used to create a picture from the number.

South Bay Elementary students enjoyed a special 100th day snack, built structures with 100 Legos and created a 100th day T-shirt. At John F. Kennedy Elementary, fifth graders took a time warp photo to imagine what they would look like at 100 years old. First graders at John F. Kennedy participated in learning activities centered around the number 100.

At Tooker Avenue, the PTA encouraged students to write letters to frontline workers to celebrate the 100th day of school. These letters, cards and pictures were distributed to local hospitals, precincts and firehouses to express the students’ gratitude
