Golden Grove Celebrates 100th Day Of School

Golden Grove Elementary School celebrated the 100th Day of School on Friday, Jan. 30 with a wide range of activities. Teachers use this day as a great way to celebrate various mathematical concepts using the number 100. From the very first day of school, many K-2 classes begin keeping track of the number of days they’ve been in school in anticipation of the 100th day. Some of the events of that day included bringing in a collection of 100 items, putting together 100-piece puzzles, making patterns or necklaces using 100 beads or Fruit Loops, and filling in a hundreds chart. Students even got the opportunity to divide a cake into 100 pieces, (of course eat it, too) that was graciously donated by the Publix supermarket at Royal Palm Beach and Okeechobee boulevards. Shown here, students hold up 100-day posters.
