The District celebrated the first 100 days of school on Feb. 15 with special and engaging hands-on English language arts, mathematics and art activities to mark this momentous occasion for elementary-level students.

Many of the students arrived at the school entrance dressed as 100-year-olds or donning T-shirts decorated with 100 items. Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) stations allowed the students to build structures with 100 Legos, Unifix cubes and other materials. Students honed reading skills while hunting for sight words posted in their classrooms and listening to a number of stories related to the first 100 days of school. There were also games and physical education stations where students performed 100 repetitions of exercises. In Brookhaven Elementary School’s Dual Language Magnet Program, students reviewed and recited their numbers up to 100 in both English and Spanish during a Hershey Kiss and match game.   

South Country Director of Elementary Education Amy Brennan noted that this day is special for elementary-level students. “The students have really worked hard and have been successful in meeting the academic challenges of the first 100 days of school,” she said.
