Upcoming - 100th Day of School
We are planning to celebrate our 100th day of school on Tuesday, February 2nd (weather pending, of course).
We are encouraging students to either dress up like they are 100 years old or make a shirt with 100 things on it. This will help us visualize what 100 objects look like. Some ideas to use as decorations are stickers, googly eyes, fabric paint, cotton balls, buttons, pom-poms, stamps, foam decorative pieces, tallies, etc. (The lighter-weight the item, the easier it is to glue, stick, or attach 100 things to the shirt.)
Have fun creating any shirt that you would like with 100 items on it. If possible, please have your child wear their shirt on FEBRUARY 2nd or dress up as 100 years old as we celebrate the 100th day of school!
THANK YOU! ☺
Heads-Up: No School on Monday, February 15th
