Kindergartners at Northeast Elementary School reached a milestone on Feb. 13 when they attended school for the 100th day. Upon hitting triple digits for the 2018-19 school year, students participated in a variety of 100-themed literacy and math activities.

Many children envisioned themselves about 95 years into the future by dressing up as 100-year-olds. They saw pictures of centenarians — people who have reached the age of 100 — and wrote about all they want to accomplish before turning 100.

Students colored 100-day crowns which they then wore with pride, counted 100 of different objects and imagined how they would spend $100. They practiced their math skills by counting to 100 by fives and tens.
