Students at Lura M. Sharp Elementary School in the Pulaski Academy and Central School District recently held a celebration of centennial proportions.
On Feb. 24, the school celebrated the 100th day of the 2014-2015 school year and commemorated the occasion with an assortment of fun and educational activities.
Students in Denise Kelly’s kindergarten class and Katrina Archibee’s pre-kindergarten class worked together to bake a “100th Day Magic Cake.”
The recipe for the cake called for 100 mini marshmallows.
Students were tasked to work together to count the number of marshmallows that went into the cake’s batter.
After sprinkling the mini marshmallows on the bottom of a pan, the students poured the cake batter on the marshmallows and spooned cherries on top.
However, when the cake was done baking, the students were amazed to see that the top of the cake was glazed with the marshmallows, while the cherries had sunk to the bottom.
“When you work as hard as you have for 100 days, magic can happen,” Kelly told the students.
Students in Bonney Catanzarite’s kindergarten class also celebrated the 100th day of school by created necklaces featuring 100 beads.
