To a child, 100 may seem like a very large number, but students at Northwest Elementary School learned that it’s not so big after all. In fact, it only took a little more than half of the school year to get there, as students and staff celebrated the 100th day on Feb. 26.

Many children, and even several kindergarten teachers, dressed up as if they were 100 years old. Donning wigs, glasses, curlers and canes, they were able to envision themselves a century old. 

Kindergarten students sang and danced along to “Count to 100” videos and made necklaces out of 100 Fruit Loops. They also did 100 exercises in groups of tens, learning that keeping their bodies healthy just might help them live to 100. Their peers in second grade did writing pieces about life as 100-year-olds. 

Students throughout the school wore hats to declare themselves “100 days smarter” and “100 days wiser.”
