Students at Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Elementary School have 100 reasons to celebrate.
Look at the old geezers in Maria Hendrix’s first grade class at Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Elementary School. The students honored the 100th day of school by dressing as 100-year-old versions of themselves. From left to right, with Mrs. Hendrix are students Kathryn Ward, Boe Flanagan, Sarah Bender, Noah Lescenski, and Shelby Merritt.
February 14 marked the 100th day of the 2013-14 school year.
It was a day to celebrate the students’ hard work and academic achievements as well as enjoy some centennial-themed fun.
Kindergarten and first grade students and staff came to school dressed as 100-year-olds and classroom activities were all geared towards a 100 theme.
Students practiced their literacy and writing skills by crafting stories explaining what they would do with 100 dollars.
Altmar-Parish-Williamstown kindergarten teacher Kelly Porter uses her cane to lead the students in her class in a song celebrating the 100th day of the 2013-14 school year. Mrs. Porter and her students dressed as 100-year-olds for the day-long centennial celebration.
The students sang songs about the number 100.
They also practiced their math skills by counting to 100 using number bundles.

Kindergarten students at Altmar-Parish-Williamstown Elementary School practice their number bundles as they make a snack for their 100th day of school celebration. The students counted 10 scoops of 10 different types of snacks until they reached 100. They are up to bundle seven in the picture and have three more to go until their bowl of crackers, pretzels, cereal and other treats is ready to eat.
