100 Days of School Celebration at Barry Primary
On February 25, students and teachers at Barry Primary were buzzing with excitement, and it was not because of Mardi Grais! February 25th marked the 100th day of school.
The literal meaning of the 100th day of school is imply the 100th day school or class is in session. The symbolic meaning, however, is more important for students. The 100th day marks a chance for students to realize and reflect that they are 100 days smarter and have grown academically and socially since September.
Most of our teachers wore matching 100 days of school t-shirts, classrooms were decorated and students celebrated in a variety of ways. Special Education teacher Kelley Peri said, “each day we count down our days and we talk about how much smarter the students are. Today it is important to celebrate that the students are 100 days smarter. The students have worked really hard this year so we are celebrating! Some of the activities that the students will be participating in today include reading books about the 100 days, counting to 100, and making 100 day crowns.” Students ended the day by taking home cookies since they are “smart cookies.
We know our students will continue to learn and progress the next 80 days of school and we look forward to watching them grow. As always follow us on our social media sites- twitter, instagram and facebook to see up to date photos of our students at Barry Primary and around the District!
