100 days of school

Open Door School activities focused on number 100

The students at Open Door School took part in a number of activities Monday afternoon, all having to do with the number 100, to celebrate their 100th day of school this year.

“During the school year, we have a calendar and count every day that we’re in school, and each teacher does this in their own way,” Amy Yeomans, primary 1 teacher at the school, said. “When we get to the 100th day, we plan activities for the students that all have to do with the number 100 to celebrate.”

The event is an annual occurrence for the school, and the intermediate 1 and 2 and primary 1 and 2 classes, which make up the school’s K-eighth grades, take part.

Some of the activities included making trail mix with 10 items of 10 different ingredients, decorating 100-day crowns, predicting how much 100 drops of water would fill a cup, decorating a 100 graphic with 100 marks from a bingo dauber, and stacking 100 Styrofoam cups. Each class of students then rotated to participate in each activity.

“This is just something we do to celebrate being in school for 100 days,” Lawrence County Developmental Disabilities Public Relations Director Tim Nunnery said. “And the kids really look forward to it.”

Several LCDD events are also on the horizon for next month, as March is the National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.
