100 Days is Just the Beginning for Kindergartners

100th Day Of School


In September, 100 seemed like a big number for kindergartners in the Massapequa School District but by the time they reached the 100th day of school on Feb. 24, counting to triple digits was a piece of cake. Students returned from the winter break to celebrate the special day in their educational careers, the first of many milestones, as they will reach 1,000 days of school in fifth grade and total more than 2,300 days of learning by high school graduation. It was with that eye toward the future that inspired kindergartners at East Lake Elementary School who dressed up as if they were 100 years old and paraded through the school. Children then returned to their classrooms for 100-themed learning activities.
