Northeast Students Are 100 Days Smarter


Kindergartners at Northeast Elementary School are 100 days smarter. The school recently celebrated the milestone moment in the 2016-17 school year.

Many students dressed up to look like they were 100 years old by coloring their hair gray or donning canes. Activities included taking 100 steps, completing 100-day journals, stacking 100 cups labeled with sight words and making special hats. At home, children made collages with their parents using 100 pieces of a certain object such as candy or stickers.

The teachers explained that the 100th day of school afforded many opportunities to have the students build their literacy and numeracy skills.
