Monday we finally celebrated the 100th day of school. I say finally because snow days and cancellations kept pushing the day further away. We kicked-off our 100th day celebration with an all school assembly where we released 100 balloons, a SME tradition.

Multi-grade groups of kindergarten through second grade students and third and fourth grade students participated in 100 day activities.

 Why do we celebrate the 100th day of school? It is a great way to celebrate the various mathematical concepts that can be taught using the number 100. From the very first day of school, primary classes begin keeping track of the number of days they've been in school in anticipation of the 100th day. The days are marked using popsicle sticks, ten of which become a "ten bundle" paving the way to counting by tens and ones.

Fifth and sixth grade teachers decided they would challenge their students by having "Pi Day" on March 14th instead of celebrating 100th day. They did however want to be part of the 100 balloon assembly that they have participated in since kindergarten!!
