I don’t remember celebrating the 100th day of school back when I was in elementary school, do you?
The school the boys go to celebrates — they do lots of different activities relating to the number 100 — counting, reading books, writing down 100 words that they know, that sort of thing. They each had to take a baggie with 100 snack pieces for one of the counting activities. (We sent Corn Chex, I didn’t have anything else fun to give them. Must go grocery shopping…)
It’s kind of a fun thing to celebrate, except for one small problem. 100 days down means there are only 80 left to go. I’m not sure it’s possible that we are just over the halfway mark on this school year already.
Time really does speed up as you get older, doesn’t it?
100 days? First we institute kindergarten “graduation” and now we celebrate 100 days of school? Maybe I’m just crabby today,but sometime I think they invent this stuff so parents can buy more things for school…..really sorry (for the parents) to hear that there are only 80 more to go!!LOL

My son’s school celebrates 100 days too, which I thought was neat. Of course I thought his Kindergarten graduation last year was special too.
