Altmar Elementary School Celebrates the 100th Day of School

On Tuesday, February 14, students and staff at Altmar Elementary School in the Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Central School District celebrated more than just Valentine’s Day.

They celebrated 100 days of learning.

<p>In celebration of the 100th day of school at Altmar Elementary School, kindergarten and first grade students gathered in the cafeteria for a variety of counting and math activities. One such activity was a count-around; students stood in a circle and counted around by ones until they reached 100. Student Kylie Kirk was lucky number 100 in the circle.</p>

To commemorate this special day kindergarten and first grade teachers kicked off a celebration by counting the students as they entered the school to start the day.

Kindergarten and first grade students were outfitted in 100th day of school glasses and crowns and participated in a variety of fun reading, counting and math themed activities.

The students counted to 100 by ones, fives, and tens; they sat silently for 100 seconds; they sang along to the 100th day of school song; they did 100 exercises; and the listened to a book about the 100th day of school.

School nurse Valerie Salazar joined the celebration and recognized six students who have been healthy for the first 100 days of school.

Jayden Castor, Kandace Tanner, Jordan Korzeniewski, Makayla King, Delaney Dunn and Heather Smith were presented with 100th Day of School Perfect Attendance Achievement Awards.

Nurse Salazar said, “It’s a pleasure to present these students with perfect attendance certificates because these are students who have not needed to visit me all school year.”
