St. Rocco School celebrates 100th Day of School
The elementary school students at St. Rocco School celebrated being 100 days smarter last week. According to first-grade teacher Lori Sweeney, each student was asked to create a poster, cape, picture or other item using 100 of anything they chose.
"Each year Lori adds in something new for the 100th day event," said Principal Lorraine Moschella. "She always comes up with such creative ways to celebrate the day."
The school cafeteria was filled with students showcasing gummy worms, crayons, stickers, fish, toys, eyeballs, puppies, photos, Legos, meaningful words, pom-poms and more, all organized into a special project for the 100th Day of School. On some projects there were 10 by 10 arrays and on others there were 10 groups of 10, or on still others there were 100 things all mixed together. Each project was unique from the next, and the students had the opportunity to go up in front of the group to describe their project and how it was created. To conclude the whole group event, Sweeney read aloud the poem "100 is A Lot," which contained 100 words.
